In just about a week I have a show at Studio Mantra in Eugene, Oregon. It’s going to be part of the First Friday Artwalk, (you can read the short write up on their site) so hopefully a lot of folks will come out and support the arts. I’m excited, nervous, overwhelmed, and everything else in between. There’s still a lot to do and I’m running out of time, but I know I will have everything completed and ready to hang early next week. With the help of my hubby, the hanging process should go relatively smoothly.
Other than me, there are two other artists who will be show casing their work at Studio Mantra. My dear friend Ariana Schwartz teaches fashion design and textiles at Lane Community College. Her fashion class, ReFashion Lab works with newspaper, cardboard, cloth and every day upcycle objects that are then created into fashion pieces. Her students will be modeling their creative fashion wear. Ariana created the dress on the right. She’s an amazing fashion designer and highly creative.
The next artist is Margie Templeton. Margie creates beautiful watercolor and oil paintings. Margie spends half the year in Eugene creating watercolor paintings and the other half of the year in Bali, Indonesia creating oil paintings. Her paintings are colorful and vibrant.
Hope you wonderful local folks can come by and support us at this event. Here are the details:
