Perspectives is the name of my upcoming art show this Saturday August the 8th, and boy has it taken me for a ride. Forcing me to see my own unique perspectives, and being open to others. That’s what the shows about, taking something old and possibly forgotten and giving it new meaning and new life.
As true to form, I took the opportunity to be graciously asked to be in an amazing gallery to stretch myself and find new ways to express myself. I’ve done some work in the past that involved sewing on photo’s, paired with my recent obsession with embroidery and found myself in my current creation. Although I think it’s turning out very me, it’s got a dark edge to it, which usually doesn’t pop out. Must be the full time job.
Two amazing shows featuring happy delusions own Alexandria Sandlin, the artist behind the big eye art that is Cherry Bones. First tonight at Twilight in West Seattle during the West Seattle art walk go check out her latest piece in the 12 Days of Christmas Show. Alex did 4 calling birds, featuring a less then desirable bird pie. And remember to wear your tackiest holiday sweater to the event. Then this Saturday is Art Attack in Georgetown. Alex will have more work to be unveiled including some new mushroom pieces that I am personally super excited to see! Both shows run from 6-9, and be sure to click on all the featured links to see all the other amazing artists that Alex has as her company. Go Alex. The more I see from his little lady the more and more I’m becoming a collector of her work.
