Art Week: Sculpture Day


It’s art week here at Quilts & Creativity, in honor of my upcoming talk at the Ann Litrel gallery in Woodstock. I dropped off the quilts today and got a behind-the-scenes tour from Ann, and her gallery is gorgeous. Her paintings are luscious and color-rich.

I’ll be talking about my color inspiration, how I approach color in my art, and how color in quilts is truly unique from other art forms.  Join us for a fun night out on Friday, July 3 at 7p.m.  Woodstock will be hosting its monthly Friday Night Live, where shops, restaurants and merchants stay open late until 9p.m.  It’s a great family night out for everyone.

I also attended the Big Canoe Fine Art Show and was delighted with the vibrant colors, shapes, and textures contained in the exhibit.  I’ll be sharing photos with you each day, revolving around a theme.  Today is sculpture, Wed. will be glass, Thursday will be wood, and Friday will be quilts, Gee’s Bend quilts to be exact.  Don’t miss a single day!

Here are some of the sculptures by local artist Eric Strauss of Ellijay, GA:


Artful gate.


Gate detail.  The roses look like you could pluck them right off the gate.


Reminiscent of Leonardo’s horse.


Whimsical birds in a fountain.  The gurgling water sounded meditative.


This sculpture greeted us as we drove toward the Art Show home.


Oversized apple and pear, with blown-glass and metal sculptures in background.


This bowl radiated color and light.



Mother and child.

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing glass pieces from the show.  Enjoy – and stop by for a visit if you live in north Georgia.  It’s gorgeous in the mountains right now!

    There are voice activated recorders, little cameras, and even GPS devices
    out there. Both online and offline stores that sell surveillance, or so
    called ‘spy’ equipment, post disclaimers stating that the products they sell are not to be used illegally.
    So if you might be questioning where they are really planning if you deliver them out on errands than the GPS feature will actually come in handy when monitoring
