Three More from Creative Knots

 


Today I have three more pieces from the art exhibit I mentioned yesterday at the Shemer Art Center.  Up first is my favorite of the pieces, this portrait of the late Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  This piece was created by Scott Stanton.

He states that while visiting a cemetery he noticed how much waste is involved with artificial flowers and other decorations.  He decided to create art with the "up cycled" pieces he collects.  He calls this piece "RBG in Blue".  











This piece is very small, only about 8 or 9 inches across.  

This is by Kate Hughes and is called "Moonrise over South Mountain".  This is hand embroidery on linen.  She uses both traditional and non-traditional stitching techniques to create scenes and portraits.  












I like this last piece too.  It's called "Roadrunner" and is painted on mesquite wood with acrylic paints. The artist is Jan Basil who is an interesting person.  She was one of the first of five women television news camera operators for ABC News.  She has traveled all over the world covering major events.  She calls her works "contemporary, mystical realism".  

Another fascinating show at the Shemer Art Center.

Ruth looks like rose petals, I know several people who love to own that. One of my early memories was driving out to South Mountain.

Interesting! I especially love the RBG piece -- not only its subject but the materials he's using. Brilliant!
