this is not exactly a new obsession for me......one of my first blog posts, way back when, was about my latest intrigue with mixed media and its varied applications......but an obsession it is :-) I recently took a class at redux contemporary art center (find them here) with christine bush roman ( find her amazing work here)
and i have not stopped since!! luckily all those creations are not piling up in a corner of my studio! I am SUPER HAPPY to say that they live ( albeit temporarily....hopefully!!) at karen's korner frame and art gallery :-) insert happy dance !! (find a link to her gallery page here)
her gallery is located in mount pleasan, sc at the shops at gateway to the beach. A super fun space, surrounded by other super fun spaces, conveniently located a short bicycle ride from my home studio and another short bike ride across the sullivan's island causeway right up to the edge of the atlantic ocean! OH what a lucky girl I am!!! I digress.......
karen's korner has been around since 2000 and is host to a HUGE variety of fun, eclectic artists.
just a small few of my favorites.......
an art form that is true to my heart....recycled folk art by deane bowers
super fun and whimsical pottery with lots of nods to sea life by teri whitner
colorful and textural mixed media pieces by kim west....i have several of her pieces in my own collection :-)
amazingly vibrant fused glass art by tanya craig
more recycling by my favorite bottle cap peeps matt & tammy varn
When you are over on the "pleasant side" of the charleston area, pop in to visit with karen boals and check out all the fabulous local lowcountry art she has to offer!!!
