Boulder Arts & Crafts Gallery is pleased to host an artist's reception for Janice Larson and Girl Painters West on Saturday, June 29th, 2019 from 2 - 4 pm. Stop in for refreshments and live music by the Wallpaper House Band.
- Janice Larson:
This group of Beading/Embroidery is called “Connecting Threads”. The backdrop for each piece are segments of my Canadian Grandmother’s quilts, made in the 1940 - 1950’s and my Mother’s stitched pillows made in the 1970’s. I embellished this work with embroidery, beads and vintage buttons, many from my Mother’s button collection.
I have incorporated bits of my Mother’s and Grandmother’s
jewelry, watch faces and pins. The connection between generations of women in my family comes full circle in these textile pieces.
- Girl Painters West:
The artistic core of this group of western women painters is their passion for expressing themselves through color. The impact & accessible message of each composition is devoted to committing color to canvas.
Our shared inspirations & love of nature are uniquely communicated by each artist; Abstract or Representational.
This imaginative painterly group paints from the heart,
expressing visual joy & sharing the idea that inspiration is everywhere.
