OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, September 10, 7-10pm

 
Gillian Bradshaw-Smith, who was born in British India, studied fine art in England, and first gained notoriety as an artist in 1970’s New York — garnering important solo exhibitions and museum shows — has been living and creating art in Dallas since 1995. For her long-anticipated, first-ever Dallas solo exhibition, Bradshaw-Smith presents Finding Daphne, a series of paintings in gouache and large-scale mixed-media fabric collage inspired by sensuous forms found in crepe myrtle trees.

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, September 10, 7-10pm

Some may ask why I choose to live and work in the world of objects…
it is the only way I can think of to remold the crushing realities of life.

— Robin Ragin, 2016

Robin Ragin presents Upstart Crow, which came about as the artist was in the final stages of dismantling the studio of her mentor of 15 years, David McManaway, six years after his passing. Through deep contemplation, she considered this task to be his last lesson in the profound possibilities held within objects left behind by others, thus inspiring her latest series of assemblages.

May Workshop with Deborah Boschert

Yes, her work is being shown all over the world, and yes, she has just signed a contract for a book with C&T Publishing, that well-known publisher of top-notch quilting and sewing books! And now Deborah Boschert brings our members a rare opportunity to discover some of her design secrets! On Saturday, May 2 (all day), and Sunday, May 3 (half day), this emerging international quilt artist offers us her newest workshop, Dynamic Guided Designs for Fabric Collage.

Deborah explains that the class is good for all levels of artists, even beginners: “No experience necessary. It’s also good for artists in any medium. We’ll really be exploring design and composition in a super friendly, intuitive way.”

Participants will create collages with fused fabrics using Deborah’s unique design guides. (You’ll work with your own fabrics and batting/felt, plus a bit of fusible webbing and embroidery floss.) The fee for this terrific weekend class is just $75.

Sign up online now, or take your chances of signing up at DAFA’s April 27 meeting! Here is the link to all the information, including the supply list.
