Panel Discussion at the Works!

Saturday, April 21st, I had the opportunity to join fellow Pen Women, (from L to R)Brenda Laymen, Renate Fackler and Rosalie Unger in an Artists & Writer's Panel Discussion, where we shared our writing and artistic processes and discussed our collaborative work that will remain on exhibition at The Works, in Newark, through July.

On the Page...

My husband and I recently ran over to Grandview to check out the current exhibit at the Ohio Craft Museum, entitled, On the Page- The Book as Art.  It was wonderful! It will remain up through August 23rd, so I HIGHLY recommend you stop in and check it out! 

Here are some of my favorites...

While my photography doesn't do these justice...the book on the top shelf is set within two halves of a harmonica...truly you need to see it up close...beautiful!

The one on the second shelf is just so fun!

I love the simplicity and hand stitching on this one...I was dying to touch this one.

THIS ONE IS AMAZING!!! Again, you can't tell from this photo, but the pink tones of this dress is created by tiny, tiny, cursive/sanskrit writing in red ink!!! Again, a must-see in person!!

The black paper butterflies are wonderful...

So, if in or near Columbus, I encourage you to check out this exhibit of interesting books as art, created by US artists as well as members of the Santa Fe Book Arts Group!  The Ohio Craft Museum is a gem of a resource, not only for wonderful exhibits, but they also house a gift shop boasting some wonderful artwork from local artists, as well as hosting a terrific summer camp for kids, where teachers, artists and experts in a variety of mediums come in and lead small hands-on day camp sessions!  The Ohio Craft Museum is also home to The Ohio Designer Craftmen, the arts organization behind the Winterfair events in Columbus and Cincinnati.  Check it out...www.ohiocraft.org
