Today we installed 45 works for my solo show in the Widlund Gallery. We worked through the initial layout of the gallery and I only switched a few pieces from my original plan. This is the 'sneak peek' of each of the gallery walls & the works as they are! I hope that you will get a chance to see them in person, the colors look fantastic & the details of the jewelry are beautiful.

There are fifteen flowers that each have three pieces; the original photograph, an altered digital print, and a polymer clay jewelry set. Some of the flowers are perennials from my garden here at the house, others are wildflowers from Putnam Farm & Crane Mountain. Each is unique and represents the colors, textures & shapes of the individual flowers.

Remember the opening reception is next Saturday night, May 8th from 5-7 p.m.

Tomorrow's the big day!

All the artwork is packed and ready to go in the morning. I'll be at the gallery installing the works for much of the day, I promise a few photographs as a sneak peak of the exhibit tomorrow evening.

Wish me luck!

Almost Ready!!!

Photographs are framed, the final jewelry sets are on the beadboards ready to be designed & finished and the last frames & backing are on their way for the prints. I'm so excited about the upcoming show, here's all the final official information.

Colors of Nature. Floral prints, photographs & polymer clay jewelry. Perennial garden flowers from the home garden and wildflowers from the fields of Crane Mountain provide the inspiration for the prints, photographs and polymer clay jewelry. Each of the fifteen flowers is the focus of a trio of art pieces that interpret the colors and textures through the different art mediums of printing inks, photography and polymer clay.
