Sharing my Bead Art

This weekend I share my love of bead art in two ways.

On Saturday, I join members of Amapola Gallery in the kickoff celebration of the Gallery’s 35th anniversary.

The Gallery is open 10am to 5pm.  I’ll be there the entire afternoon.

This is a bead art demo from Mary Ellen Merrigan of MaryEllenBeads.com.

Read about the list of events and a description of the many parts of Amapola Gallery’s 35th Anniversary Celebration on its blog. I discussed my snake knot macrame demo in an earlier post about the bezels I made for our 35th event.

Better yet, plan to stop by the festivities. With 40 local artists, many of whom will be at the event, it promises to be a wild and crazy time.

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle

On Sunday, I’m teaching a bead embroidered cuff class at Elinor’s Art and Beads. Call 505-884-8511 for class availability.

I hope to see you over the weekend and together we’ll celebrate all bead art.
