There was an excited, creative CMMAG buzz at DiGiulio Studios on Sunday, March 13th. From the demos (card and nametag making with Linda; cool stencil techniques with Shannon; fabulous flower felting with Katherine, and creating cactus-themed canvases with Mimi's pulled paint), to the delicious food provided by members (we do know how to put on a great spread!), big fun was had by all. Thanks to Sharon and Joe DiGiulio for opening their home and studio to us--we had a terrific time!
CMMAG President, Michelle Davis Petelinz is the featured artist at the North Carolina Crafts Gallery for the month of October! The Carrboro, NC gallery stocks an eclectic mix of art from local and national artists. Michelle's "Ancestral Odes" exhibit includes her art-to-wear alcohol ink under glass pendants, wood vessels with polymer, and wall art. The work is on display now, and the opening reception is Friday, October 14, from 6 to 9pm, as part of Carrboro's 2nd Friday Artwalk. See you there!
Guild founder Jeanne Rhea, Guild president Michelle Davis Petelinz and Guild member Sharon DiGiulio teamed up for an exhibit of their mixed media work entitled "It's All in the Details." Currently on view at 311 Gallery (311 West Martin Street, downtown Raleigh), the show is the first on new gallery manager Allen J. Clapp's calendar for 2015.
Jeanne's large- and small-scale alcohol ink paintings, Michelle's acrylic, polymer and ink wall hangings, and Sharon's baby doll-themed paintings and collages make an eclectic, intriguing and colorful feast for the eyes.
For the front window, each artist created a 24"x 24" piece, using the same five colors. The rest of the exhibit showcases both recent work, and 'old favorites'.
"It's All in the Details" opened to rave reviews on First Friday, January 2, and will be on display until Saturday, January 31. Gallery hours: Wed-Sat 11:30-4 pm, or by Appointment (firstname.lastname@example.org…
