Glenview Mansion Art Gallery Opening Photos

Here are some scenes from yesterday’s opening at Glenview Mansion Art Gallery. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us. We were too busy enjoying the company of friends and family to get many photos of the show, or any of us! It was great fun, and thanks to Julie Farrell, the Director for the thoughtful and creative ways she displayed our work.

Loved how Julie placed these two portraits of my niece and me together without knowing it was a portrait of my niece.

All the work has been delivered to Glenview Mansion Art Gallery and it promises to be a great show. The Opening is Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016 from 1:30 to 3:30 but there are other days to see the show before it closes on Nov. 23, 2016.  Our part is done and the work is now in the capable hands and great vision of Gallery Director Julie Farrell. She is the one who places the work and makes the vision of four different artists sing together.

See you at the show.

Some stars

closeupTheresaMartin

I found the tiniest little gold star beads at a small local bead shop. I sewed them onto this 6″ x 6″ piece that is part of the series of nine that I’m making for the November show at Glenview Mansion Art Gallery.  The girl is from my collection of very old photographs. The dress, which looks like metal, is a wonderful material that is no longer available for purchase. It’s a plastic material that feels like cloth called Radiance Papers. It’s one of those things that I have in my studio that I’m reluctant to use, because it can’t be replaced, but I’m working on letting go of these type of things. I think she deserves her dress of gold. And I hope she has many wishes granted by those stars.

The Alice in Wonderland “Chopped” Challenge

 

Martin MorsAlice Challenge

John Mors and I have each created an art piece based on “Alice In
Wonderland” in response to a CHOPPED style challenge that we gave to ourselves.

CHOPPED is a great show  on The Food Network where chefs are given three to
five of the same ingredients and are expected to feature them in a meal.

Our same ‘ingredients’ were an odd shaped cigar box, a wine box, a vintage
photo that reminded us of Alice and a small rabbit.

We present our chopped meal to whet your appetite for our show at Glenview
Mansion Gallery in November of 2016.

I’m not telling you which is mine and which is John’s. I’m leaving that for
you to guess.  If you know our work, it’s probably not too hard.  Let me
know in the comments what you’ve decided.

Mary Mary

IMG_9427Mary Mary Quite Contrary is a 6″ x 6″ x 2″ mixed media piece.  It’s part of a series of nine that I’m working on for the show at Glenview Art Gallery in Rockville, MD, coming in November.  I began by scanning a photo into Photoshop, then printing it out onto Transfer Artist Paper. I ironed on the transfer to cotton, as you see above.

IMG_9455I drew the square and made an impression of the 2″ deep canvas board to define the edges. I painted the background metallic silver and roughed in the circle guidelines.

FullSizeRenderShe now has a green dress.  The first embellishments sewn on were the silver spikes. I added a row of pale blue Swarovski rhinestones inside the spike circle.

The background has a rice stitch with Japanese silver leaf thread.  The final touch was the teeny tiny pearl necklace. It’s now stretched onto a 6″ x 6″ x 2″ canvas board.
