Atchison Art Walk

Atchison, Kansas is hosting an Art Walk Friday evening, April 29th from 5:30 to 8:30PM. There will be approximately 25 artists displaying their works within the various businesses. Eash artist will be in a business beginning at the Missouri River area and ending on North 8th street. This is not only an opportunity to see great art but also historic architecture in Atchison.

I will be displaying my work at Willow Brook, located at 117 N. 8th. Please stop by and see what I have created. Using scrps of yars, threads, ribbons, material, feathers and any other "dry" materials I have assembled them in to artworks like the ones below. Materials used are the scraps left from sewing, knitting and other mixed media works.

Living in the midwest I have witnessed many storms throughout the years. While the storms are extremely turbulent theyeye of the storms have a fascinating calm about them.
The "Eye of the Storm" represents that calmness.

One of my favorite works is "Sea Beauty".
It was inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Ocean. While gazing at the horizon of ocean meeting the sky I was facinated by what lies beneath the water. It must be as beautiful as the surface!

This work depects the flowers in my garden and is appropriately titled
"Garden Splendor".

Enjoy a spring Friday evening touring Atchison's historic businesses to see the work of local artisans. What a unique way to spend the evening!
