On Exhibit: Community of Artists at DanforthART

Fractured Fence Repaired #2 will be on exhibit at Community of Artists at DanforthART in Framingham, MA from June 9 - August 4, 2013.

Each summer, DanforthART hosts two juried member shows that feature work created by Boston-area artists. Each show is a regional showcase, and I am honored to again be a part of the Community of Artists show.

The Fractured Fence Repaired series explores blue construction fence patterns on white (reminiscent of blue and white plates), that are fractured and then repaired with gold (Kintsukuroi).
Each piece was created with monoprinted, handstamped, and handpainted fabric, that was cut and reassembled with small stitches. Then the fabric was stiffened to provide a more paper-like feel and appearance, and gold was painted near the stitched seams.
