C.T. Gabbert Art Park.

Greetings All,
I drive past the place often to look and see what new images the have on display because I love public art and today I got an offer to be included  in the "C.T. Gabbert Art Park" thanks to Eileen/Doug Leunig and a special thanks to Chuck Gabbert.

"What started as a vacant gas station on the corner of MacArthur Highway and SW Adams is now an artistic oasis, thanks to C.T. Gabbert Remodeling and Construction Inc. The firm is bringing beauty to the south end of the Warehouse District with its art park, featuring a rotating art exhibit, unique and colorful flower planters, a recycled tire and birdhouse hanging display and a “Little Free Library”—a cabinet of books for community exchange. The idea is to take a book and leave a book if you can.

By collaborating with local artists, community members and area schools, mastermind Chuck Gabbert has high hopes for the mural spaces in particular. “These murals can be anything, really. We take an image, photograph or drawing… and turn it into a vinyl piece similar to modern billboard technology.”

Prairie Center of the Arts workshop

Greetings All,
I took a linocut print mini-workshop at the Prairie Center of the Arts and loved it.  I have not done a linocut in ages and it brought back the good and the bad, but I loved every cut.  I even pulled out my Dremel to see if that would make thing move along faster, but haste dose make waste.  However here is the end results and I love it.

Weekly reminder of the 2016 TQHF celeabration.

Greetings All,

"Quilting My Story" with Carolyn Mazloomi, luncheon and lecture, Friday July 15, 2016, 12:30pm. In her formative years, Mazloomi held a fascination with airplanes and she later earned a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering. The combination of geometric precision and artistic expression attracted the engineer's interest and quilting became the primary outlet for her creative talent. her desire to tell the African American experience in cloth fueled her exploration in narrative quilts. Consistent with the African American folklore tradition of storytelling, Mazloomi is a "fabric griot". She will discuss her journey from engineering to quilt maker, historian and curator.
