Local Artist Transforms Her Exhibit Work into Street Art - The Zebra

Thanks to Susan Mulligan Fleischman for the opportunity to share more of the process and story behind my front yard art installation. She features some great photos of the process from the original paper cuts to making the silk screens too.

The framed paper cuts are delicate two-dimensional works with verse and image hand-cut from paper, which is then mounted on a colored background. The verses include quotes by women artists and writers, adorned with scenes of families and nature lovers in the forest or walking along a path. Of season...

Daily Moments of Wonder - https://mailchi.mp/de66dda37d16/daily-moments-of-wonder
As I stay closer to home, I am noticing more about the natural world right around me: the plants in my yard and my neighbors' yards, the folliage coming out on trees and the lengthening days as we move into spring.

Handmade with what we Have on Hand - https://mailchi.mp/97206ab41367/handmade-with-what-we-have-on-hand
In this time of staying home, I am thankful for the chance to share things I am making with this community. I'd love to hear what you are making too.
This image is a color wheel made of plants found in my yard today...

One more example of community art at camp - this year I began and ended my time at staff week with walking the labyrinth - very excited to see our community mosaic from last year now installed and ready to welcome walkers.
On my drive home I stopped for gas and snacks at the store in Orkney Springs. The cashier noticed my labyrinth necklace and told me how much she loves the Shrine Mont labyrinth - fun to connect around our shared love of this place and to think of ways the labyrinth reaches out to the surrounding community. Thanks to #shrinemont for the work of framing, grouting and mounting the mosaic. #shrinemontcamps #artcamp #communityart #labyrinth #mosaic #meditation
