An heirloom uncovered three years after her father’s death has become a fashion statement atop artist Adrienne Anderson-Smith’s head. She added a satin bow twelve years ago to personalize her inheritance and attached a few collected feathers and pins–this “few” soon becoming a bouquet of plumage and layers of gifted buttons. The striking hat was begging to tell its story of conception. I was inspired by such a fashion statement!
This encounter was just a snippet of the eye candy offered during May’s First Thursday Art Walk. I entered the Tashiro Kaplan Building with excitement to see the screen print atop my canvas drop cloth pants (their own journey explained in the photos below and in a previous post…)
What an honor to be amidst such talented artists (those including Adrienne Anderson-Smith & Mary Mac Dahlke)! The pants turned out brilliantly. I was even given the opportunity to promote LOCAVORE by sauntering through the halls of the TK building in Mary Mac’s and my creation.
I invite you to witness a unique collaboration between two creative mediums. Purchase your admission to LOCAVORE today (and act quickly, as our pre-sale ticket sales are ending soon).
“My passion keeps going and going,” stated another Art Walk featured artist Claudia Zimmerman when explaining the reason behind her creative pursuits.
