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.
Stack of John Mors Sculptures. Loved the way director, Julie Farrell, placed these.
The Entomologist by theresa mARTin and Red Summer by John Mors
Loved how Julie placed these two portraits of my niece and me together without knowing it was a portrait of my niece.
9 Embroideries by theresa mARTin and two Alice Sculpture’s on the pedestal, displayed on a lazy Susan. (Only one showing in photo).

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 four person show promises to be a good one.

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.
