This Friday is 'First Friday' in Raleigh, the night when all the downtown galleries are open late and have their show opening receptions. This month, two of my silk paintings are included in this event! Forest Guardian and Please Share! were juried into the Birds of a Feather exhibition at 311 Gallery.
- Opening reception: Friday February 6th, 6 - 9 pm. Show runs to February 26th
- 311 West Martin Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
- Gallery hours: Wed-Sat 11:30-4 pm
These paintings are created from several translucent layers of painted silk collaged one on top of the other. The top layer is backed with batting and stands out from the surface for a 3-dimensional effect. I also added yarn and beads as embellishments.
