I plan on blogging frequently in the next few days in order to catch up.
Today's entry is all about being accepted by my local theater - Amelia Community Theater. Each time there is a wonderful new play performed by local actors an art exhibit is shown in the lobby. I've been slow to enter but enter I did this time. The play is "In the Woods" and the theme of the exhibit is "Forests and Fairy Tales." I entered three very different pieces and to my delight, all 3 were accepted. So now you get to see them.
|Walking in the Mountains, 31 x 22", $250 created by Diane Hamburg|
|Can't See the Forest, 20 x 28" $280, created by Diane Hamburg|
|Can't see the Forest detail|
|Trees, 10 x10" $75, created by Diane Hamburg|
"Can't see the Forest" was just created beginning with a manipulated photograph (using Photoshop Elements) and intrepreting it with fabrics and the double reverse applique method of Ellen Lindner. Extensive machine quilting finished the piece.
The last is a small piece using the monotype technique - on cloth - with a tree paper applique on top and machine quilting. This one is mounted on a canvas wrapped frame.
I'll be going to the play later this month and plan to take a picture of the show.
