Connecticut Scissorhands

Last Friday, I journeyed to Canton, CT to see Connecticut Scissorhands, a curated exhibition of the Connecticut chapter of Surface Design Association, which ends this Sunday. If you're in the area, I highly recommend seeing it.

As usual, my trusty camera tagged along so that photos could be taken. Numerous pieces were under glass and so not easily photographed. The following are those that I could get of good shot of. I've linked back to the artist's web site when possible. Enjoy!

  4. Beautiful work to enjoy from a great distance! I'm especially fascinated by the technique used by Sooo-z Mastropietro in her two pieces. As a regular visitor to Scotland, 'Mad Plaider' is most amusing ... and then of course there are your two beautiful pieces! How I wish I could see them all ...

    1. Our chapter of SDA is a very talented gathering and our work is as diverse as we are. Wouldn't it be fun to have the exhibition travel your way? Of course, someone would need to travel with it... Enjoy!

    2. OOOh now there's a thought! New Brewery Arts in Cirencester would suit me fine and I can recommend the Cotswolds as a place to visit ...!!

    1. Wonderful! It's always fun to be able to introduce new artists to my blogging friends. And, yes, Morna got a great shot of my red boat. I'm going back next week to take photos of the exhibition to post. Stay tuned. The red boat may even show up here. Enjoy!

  7. Oh, I tried to reach out and touch these through the ether ... to no avail. Such tempting glimpses of beautiful work, some already known (Morna) and others to be explored.

    I particularly liked the pairing of the weavings by Francine Even and Anita Balkun. Nicely hung!

    And I'll look forward to seeing more about the Red Boat. Meantime, thanks much for putting together this post!

    1. Oh! I know that feeling of fingers yearning to touch the textures of a piece of art. This was an exhibition of the varied textures and colors of fiber art, not to mention a wonderful example of just how diverse the medium can be. Stay tuned for more photos of Francine Even's work. Tomorrow I go to photograph By A Thread (where my red boat currently is) and there's more of her exquisite weavings there...
