Thursday...Into the Fray...final day in Granville
I had a few great people stop by and I had lunch with Chris as I told her about a Columbus Art League exhibit coming that will be traveling..."Off the Wall" Chris is definitely working in a very sculptural approach in her pieces. I am thinking about a piece...but the deadline is October 7 and i need some more information about the requirements of this opportunity. I do hope Chris is able to participate ...she is growing in so many directions. I began painting the magic wands for the birthday party with the Harry Potter theme... it is even held on our antique train in the courtyard. I needed to pick up a couple more special embellishments for the individual wands. I ran to Michael's and met Kay Kenyon who was selecting matte frames for her future works. We were both taking advantage of a 20% off coupon on our total purchases...a girl has to be a smart shopper /consumer.
I rushed over to see the final day of the "Into the Fray" art exhibit, this is their 7TH year and Paul Hamilton served as the shows juror. I have a great amount of appreciation for Paul's work and experience and he definitely produced a thought provoking theme and exhibit. I recognized several good artist friends in these selections and want to applaud them for their magnificent selections. I have included a few photos to share their works, mediums and techniques. I hope you enjoy their works. ken picked up my two quilts from the contemporary fiber exhibit at the Nazarene University in Mount Vernon. I am so happy I will not have to travel up North tomorrow in the predicted rains...Ohio seems to be in a weather spiral with the evidence of four days of rain and a dash of sunshine thrown in. I need to get back to work. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
