Coalescence V: Viewpoints

I am looking forward to my next show, a group exhibition, Coalescence V: Viewpoints,  on May 1-30 at The Shirt Factory Gallery in Glens Falls, NY.

Our individual inspirations used to create a Shirt Factory related piece was composed into a group statement by Robin Blakney-Carlson and is contained in the following paragraph.

This is the second group exhibition for Coalescence V, bringing together the diverse styles and disciplines of five fiber artists who share a collaborative spirit: Robin Blakney-Carlson, Eileen Donovan, Charlene Leary, Joanna Monroe, and Kris Gregson Moss.

In the early stages of planning for this exhibition we began formulating our creative vision.  We chose The Shirt Factory as a reference point for a series of new work we would create for the exhibition. Some of us felt compelled by the social history of the textile workers who, like us, were makers sharing pride in our work.  Each of us expressed fascination with the physical building- the silent stories beautifully told by worn floors, architectural details, and surfaces transformed by time.

Our homage to The Shirt Factory is documented in the photographs each artist took, and reinterpreted in their medium.

"Forest Floor"

“Forest Floor”

After ten years of saying I need to get a website, it is finally here!

I thought it would be easy to do myself after listening to countless people say so, but, wisely sought assistance so another ten years did not pass by.

So, I have graduated from a handwritten newsletter from Blue Heron Designs early days to the exciting possibilities of communicating by computer. I am thrilled to be able to share news about my creative process, ideas, exhibits and teaching through text and pictures with the touch of a button!

Coinciding with the launch of my site, you can find some of my accessories and art at Kris Gregson Moss’ studio “Moss and Friends” located in The Shirt Factory in Glens Falls, New York.

Kris and I have been friends since working together in special education at Warrensburg, and have also exhibited together at Tannery Pond.

At a recent LARAC show, we discovered that I had titled my piece “Forest Floor”, the same name that Kris was giving an upcoming show at her gallery! Kris said that it just had to be included in The Forest Floor exhibit which February 15th with a reception from 4-6 pm.

I recently brought some monoprinted canvas hand bags and lattice scarves to Poiema in North Creek; a beautiful boutique with local and internationally made treasures for fashion, beauty and interior design.

There are many little shops and eateries to experience in this little town at the base of Gore Mountain, an enjoyable destination for a lovely drive to the Adirondacks.
