I am excited to announce that I will be showing my art in the beautiful Click Workspace February-March. There will be an Ukulele band for the Northampton Arts Walk on March 10th, 6-8 pm, and I will be there to great you as well.
In Full Bloom highlights two series by fabric artist Dawn Allen. All of the pieces are made from fabric using modern art quilting techniques and her own method of transforming the usually flat quilt medium into three dimensional art.
The first “Larger Than Life Flowers” series created in 2015 was inspired by the moment in the Wizard of Oz when the movie turns to color and the camera pans across giant colorful flowers. This series is fun, exiting, and happy.
The second series, The “Doris and Irma Go Wine Tasting” created in 2016 is inspired by the exaggeration of gardens. Allen says, “I thought about stones, wood, sky and flowers and how those natural elements could be made to look more three-dimensional, more colorful, and have extreme patterns and texture.”
