Summer Brings Many Art Events To Enjoy

This piece is by Dan . He has added glass metal and more. Notice the effect, just look at the waves froth.

In many communities, summer brings an exciting event, “Art In The Park”. You’ll notice it in a variety of cities, some small, others large.

In Las Vegas, my hometown, Art in the Park occupies several blocks. Art lovers pour in from everywhere.

They arrive by the bus load. It’s a “big event”.

 

Recently my husband, myself

and a friend attended Art In The Park in a city considerably smaller than Las Vegas. We strolled around under the shade of large old trees admiring the artwork.

I prefer a smaller venue, there’s time to leisurely explore. You can linger over any work that catches your attention. There’s time to meet some of the artists, who if asked, are often happy to discuss their work.

There was food, drinks and snacks available, but who could tear themselves away from the art?

Where to go next?
Work by Neil Russell, one of my favs, Any single piece might contain pigment, sand, glass, precious metals & both oil & acrylic paint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Textured paintings are a fresh approach.

Barbara Harms-Up Close and Personal I've been a painter most of my life. I was introduced to quilting after moving to Oregon and instantly fell in love it. It was new and exciting, I jumped in with both feet. As enjoyable as I found quilting, I began to miss the creative freedom painting affords. Then, I discovered fiber art quilting, I was finally home. My Process & Approach For me, it's the process of creating that holds the strongest attraction. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, then I follow where it leads. My style is fairly loose and instinctual. The choices and decisions that come up as I work on a piece, are made based on my gut feelings. This can result in quite a few changes in direction. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise. Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat.

  1. I’d love to know more about that beautiful piece. It’s stunning.

    Smaller is always better; having the opportunity to take time to talk to the makers, admire the creations, and chat with other visitors is part of the experience.
