On Saturday, December 16th, 2017, at Chatham’s annual Winterfest celebration, I will be opening a pop-up store for one day only. During 2017 I’ve been reorganizing my studio, and working mainly at altering books. If you stop by 9 Main Street, you’ll see some of that work, finished and in progress.
I’ve also been creating “little things,” as I’ve been recovering from another major surgery. Stop by on the 16th, 10 to 4, to see my one-of-a-kind items – made lovingly, lightly, and locally. Ornaments, woolen goods, and odds and ends from the re-organization of my work-space. One day only! I hope to see you there.
Another small project was created for my granddaughters: A Fairy House. I gathered pine cones, dried rhododendron leaves, bark from downed birch branches, stones, and more. The doors are part of a wood napkin holder. I hand colored windows with alcohol inks. The house is illuminated indoors with tiny lights.
The Sanctuary Art Gallery in the Canaan Congregational Church welcomes the public to its opening and reception for the 13 artists exhibiting their works in the invitational show Frames of Reference, on Saturday, July 26, at 1 p.m. Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served.
Free and open to the public.
This Fairy House will be displayed on July 26th, but it may be there longer, depending on my granddaughters! Deirdre Malfatto’s professional photograph of the house will remain on display throughout the show. I do not yet know which photo Deidre has chosen for the show; I’m eager to see it! Please attend!
For home handwork (as opposed to studio work) I created a cuff. The body and lining are made of silk scraps from a chasuble I made, the lace is vintage, and vintage shell buttons provide an adjustable closure. Thanks to Gunnell for the pieces of lace she shared with me.
