It was a busy week getting ready for both an exhibit and class.  Artwork was finished and packed in boxes while supplies for class were placed in order.  The car was loaded up and my husband and I were off to PAF Gallery at the N.C. Arts Incubator in Siler City.  

I had my first studio, outside of the home, at the Incubator and it was wonderful to drive up to the old studio doors and be greeted by artists I had spent so much time with. 

Set-up  completed.  The exhibit consists of mixed-media works.

Discussing a piece at the Friday night opening.

A fun and art savvy group headed to the gallery.  Everyone who came had great questions about the works and the creative process.

Class on Saturday morning.  

A focused group hard at work.

Everyone worked with the same design, yet each student made the piece their own.  In the above piece the center square is being split into two sections by a random diagonal line.

 Beautiful greens and purples with squares within squares.

Reds and oranges using triangles.  You can see other color strips that will soon join this grouping.

Who can resist an orange and blue combination?  Yarn adds texture to the center square.

 A soft brown surrounds bright orange-reds with a well-formed center circle.

 Sea-shells will be the focal point of this piece using seaside colors.

Random center shapes add interest to the happy colors in this work.

Bright blue and greens of various color surround an off-center circle.

I was so proud of these students.  They had wonderful ideas and were a very creative group.  They were all a joy to work with.  

Take time to enroll in a class or make up a class for yourself at home and have a great day.
