Two of our artisans have teamed up for a special exhibit at The Winds Cafe entitled Color & Light: Brush & Needle.
From now until the end of June, you can find work from our water colorist, Libby Rudolf and our quilter, Pam Geisel.
When planning this exhibition Pam suggested to that Libby make a painting of someone quilting, while Pam created a quilt of someone painting. So they did just that. As it turns out Pam's quilt, She Paints With Fabric is 500th Quilt.
There will be an Artist Reception Sunday, May 15th from 4:30 - 6:30. If you can't make then, you have until June 30th to check out the show.

Mixed Media – Painting/Photography/Sculpture
Christine’s art interests are many and varied. She started her visual art career in photography, making primarily documentary/photojournalism and Nature images (later writing and photographing for newspapers, and teaching). “I like to make photographs of Nature – human and otherwise,” she says.
Christine then spent about 10 years diving into (and later teaching) clay sculpture. “I had been searching for a medium that was more tangible, tactile – and clay met that need completely.”
These days Christine may do or teach either photography or sculpture: “I make photographs often and I occasionally sculpt. Although,” she adds, “my current obsession is painting.” And when she paints, as expected, Christine has a couple of different styles. “I may make expressionistic abstracts at times, and more impressionistic, plein air landscapes at other times. Some say I have a short attention span, which is probably true, but I simply like to make art when and how the mood strikes me. I follow my bliss.”
