The time has come to let go of many of my experimental surface design works and samples along with my dyes, silks and cottons, both undyed and dyed and printed -- and all of my sundry collected-over-15-years assortment of books, magazines, tools and equipment. It's a mega letting go and I'm excited. The old "one door closes, another one opens" adage fits here. I am committed to my new body of work and the directions it is leading me; these materials no longer fit.
The piles for pricing keep growing and it's amazing how good it feels to let it all go.
This shift has meant pulling everything out of storage areas in both my home and studio and piling boxes and bolts and etceteras in my soon to be painting and printing space. I'm pulling out the stove, washer and dryer to paint the walls and set up additional work space.
As I prepare for the sale, I am visualizing a lovely clear space in my artistic life that is making room for new ideas and new works. I am ready to pare down, let these much loved and carefully collected raw materials move along to people who will actually USE them!
The sale is mushrooming from my personal studio sale to a building-wide January clearance sale. Turns out that a whole lot of us need to let go of the old as we usher in the new year!
So if you are in the area and want to help me make this shift, please come to Hungerford Studios' "Art of the Steal Sale" on Friday, January 25 and Saturday, January 26, 11 AM - 4 PM.
