AOTP update.

Greetings All,
It is finished! I just need to the label. It took two days to remove Peter and John only to replace there where they were. I did add undergarments, but they are just about in the exact same position. Their undergarments are of cotton, the outer-garments are woven cotton. The heads, hands, and feet are of wool flannel coat fabric that I am wearing this winter, so I am covered in more ways than one.  The title is "With Open Hearts: Peter and John at the empty tomb."  This piece was created for the Art Of The Passion exhibit at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Frankfort, IL

Twenty-four award winning and notable artists will be featured in a four week religious art exhibit commemorating Holy Week and Easter through a collaborative depiction of the Stations of the Cross and the Stations of the Light.  St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Frankfort, Indiana, is host to the reflective and meditative gallery-walk March 22-April 18, 2015.
A juried exhibit, Art of the Passion commemorates Christ’s passion and resurrection.The 2015 exhibit brings together the creative work of a variety of artists into a meditative gallery walk.  The exhibit features two sets of stations.  Leading up to Good Friday, Stations of the Cross invites visitors to a deeper experience of the story of Christ’s journey to the cross.  Then, on Easter Sunday, Stations of the Light will open and continue the story with the Resurrection, as it guides visitors along the disciples’ walk with Jesus to Pentecost.
Twenty four artists have been chosen to interpret an assigned station within their own interpretation and style. The result is a dynamic and contemplative experience for the visitor and artist alike.

Wearable update

Greetings All,
I created this top below for myself last month and have worn it twice because I like it and each time I've gotten so many compliment and one commission.  It's a handkerchief hem tunic that I just love to cut and sew.
 My commission tunic is plain black, but longer and it's lighter in weight so it flows more.

The next is a indigo/bronze denim that's medium weight.  Now back to the cutting table for several other.

 Greetings All,
I had a great day @S.L.A.M. (Saint Louis Art Museum.  I was most impressed and glad to have friends here that don't mind going to various galleries and museums for a good dose of art.  The piece to the left was a good indicator of  whimsy and I was charged for what lay ahead.
My main reason for going was to see Nick Cave's sound suits.  The exhibit started out with a video of his Hair Group and then downstairs to see the 1st of many that lead into the African and Pacific Islanders art exhibit.

Me and my friends and I didn't realize that I was wearing a bit of a sound-suit with my jacket being embellished as it is.  Was this a Freudian Slip???

I wander away form the group for a second and to check to see if that was a Degas?  Yes and I was so excited to see it and then I turned and behold there was another one of my favorites of Monet.

This was my last photo of the grand pond that welcomes you into the museum was slushy, but beautiful nevertheless.

New Year new piece and new exhibit.

Greetings All,
I hope/pray that all is well with you/yours.  I am working on a new work for an exhibit that I was asked if I would be interested in participating and I was once I read about this all I could do was to say yes.  Art of the Passion brings together the creative work of several artists, each representing one of the Stations of the Cross. Their art is then displayed together during Holy Week at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Frankfort, Indiana.  The work of the artist is prophetic; their creative work has the ability to both comfort and challenge.

From the time we are young, we begin to imagine biblical stories coming to life. Whether it is the pictures inside a Children's Bible or a beautifully crafted stained glass window, art tells stories in a way that deepens the connection between ourselves, our faith, and our world.

The passion of Christ is the central story of the Christian faith. For centuries, this story has been retold and experienced in the Stations of the Cross.  Art of the Passion aspires to foster for artists and audiences a deeper sense of connection to the cross of Christ.  Art of the Passion features new artists and artwork each year. The exhibit is open to the public the week before Easter and is located at:
St. Paul's Lutheran Church
2029 S State Rd 39
Frankfort, IN 46041

This exhibit encompass my faith and my art and for that I am grateful and excited.  I will be using most of the fabrics from my "Parking Lot Painted Shibori" and that to is exciting to me.  Above are the chosen pieces and I will keep you posted.
