December Gallery at the Garden Presents: “Singing Colors” By Artist Carlene Raper
9 December, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 13 December, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Some of the work you see on the gallery wall is brand-new, while the Mama Bear Quilt dates from the very early days of Carlene’s career as a quilt maker (nearly forty years ago). About thirty years ago, Carlene Raper began the adventure of dyeing her own cloth, using fiber reactive dyes. She is still quite playful with these dyes, and still don’t know exactly what the cloth will look like in the end. She likes it that way!
Her goal is to make the fabrics (especially the colors) talk with each other, and yes, even SING!
On December 13 & 14, Carlene will participate in the “Holiday Pop-Up Gift Shop event” sale of work at the River Garden. Hours are: Friday, Dec.13, 11-5pm, & Saturday, Dec. 14, 11- 3pm.
