Last week, I did some rust dyeing at Nina Edelman’s lovely studio. Sometimes both sides of the rust-dyed cloth were interesting:
Tracy McCabe Stewart, Leah Rosenthal and Cathy Mendola were all part of the rusty day.
Everyone hard at work, and of course, we took time to replentish energy from Miss Nina’s fabulous soup and salad bar. In the background of these photos, you can see one of Nina’s quilts and part of her home – because wherever Nina goes there is art!
I thought rust-dyeing would be perfect for my “in progress” graffiti series. So I treated some of the rusted cloth with Bubble Jet Set and printed graffiti over it from photos my husband and I have taken.
Thanks for a fun and productive day, Nina!
Yesterday I saw a prevew of Barbara Schneider’s solo show which runs September 1 through September 29 at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park. Of course I did not have a camera with me, but I was with mixed media/fiber artist, Jeanne Raffer Beck who is prepared and did have her camera. Click on Jeanne’s name and you will be able to see a preview of Barbara’s extraordinary show, read Jeanne’s wonderful blog and see her website. If you can get to Crystal Lake this month, see the exhibit it in person. Artist reception is Sept 20, 3:00-5.
These foresty-looking screened/discharged pieces are currently up on my design wall, waiting for something to happen:
