Artists of the Month: August 2019
Meredith’s interest in fabrics and fiber started early, when she first learned to sew. She experimented with painting and drawing through her youth and early adulthood. After some time designing and fabricating costumes for the No Strings Theatre Company, she decided to work with fabric and fiber as an artistic medium. She primarily uses recycled fabric, yarns, beads and leather, along with found objects and decorative items from thrift stores.
Kay is an award-winning artist who was born in South Korea and has lived in New Mexico since 1997. She was trained in traditional watercolor painting (Sumukhwa) in Korea but now works in all painting media. Desert and Southwest landscapes are her favorite subjects and she also enjoys painting still life using a modified palette-knife technique of her own creation. She has traveled to many countries but has found no comparison to the Land of Enchantment.
New Gallery Artist
Jan spent her professional life with a major computer company as an education consultant. By accident, and with a good friend’s encouragement, she started weaving and found that it had become a passion that brought her a great sense of joy and accomplishment. While she prefers the colors of nature, you will often find her weaving with colorful reed, yarns, wood objects and beads. The beauty and diversity of New Mexico often serves as an inspiration for her art. “I hope those who give my creations a home find joy and beauty in them.” -Jan
