texture of becoming

 

Artspace Gallery,  221 Center Street in Bloomsburg,  Pennsylania will be hosting the exhibit, “The Texture of Becoming” from October 3rd until November 16th  featuring the work of Deb Stabley, Bob McCormick, and Beth Aten. Deb’s work represents a new direction in which she focuses on the process of altering natural environments and the documentation of that process.  Bob is exploring a variety of media and surfaces including century-old metal barn roofing, and Beth is combining paper, fabric, and stitching in two and three dimensional objects. Works on display will include painting, photography, ceramics, books, and mixed media. The three consider the art-making process to be one of personal evolution and growth, adding to and exploring the layers of their lives.  All are welcome to attend the reception at Artspace on Saturday, October 5th from 6 until 8 where the artists will share more about their work and processes. Gallery hours are Thursday through Saturday noon until 8, and Sunday noon until five.

On a recent trip to New England, I visited the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art.DSC06972

“The mission of The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, a non-profit organization in Amherst, Massachusetts, is to inspire a love of art and reading through picture books. The only full-scale museum of its kind in the United States, The Carle collects, preserves, presents, and celebrates picture books and picture book illustrations from around the world. In addition to underscoring the cultural, historical, and artistic significance of picture books and their art form, The Carle offers educational programs that provide a foundation for arts integration and literacy.”
