|Me and Cinde at the Opening of the Prelude Exhibit, 2016|
Each year, we hold a month-long exhibit of the participating artists' work prior to the Tour, and we will again be in our wonderful Arts Connection gallery at the Flagstaff Mall. Opening Reception for the Prelude Exhibit will be Saturday, August 5 from 6 - 8pm at the Arts Connection Gallery, located in the Flagstaff Mall. If you are in the area, I hope you will stop by either for the Opening or sometime during the month of August!
Here is one of the 2 pieces I will have on display this year... something that came out totally different than what I originally had in mind!
I started out thinking I would make a coiled bowl that would be large enough to contain a potted plant, just to do something a little different. Instead, I ended up making a covered bowl, utilizing a branch of black walnut for a handle, and creating a cluster of leaves with bead "berries" as an embellishment. You never know where the muse will take you, and I'm glad I decided to just follow her instead of trying to have my own way!
