As a member of a co-operative gallery (I joined Amapola Gallery in 2013), my displays change and rearrange regularly. Plus, when items sell, displays accommodate the differences. On a quarterly basis, every artist changes position and the entire energy of the gallery shifts as a result.
My presentation varies to accommodate new inventory, changes in seasonal colors and themed collections. Many artists refer to a ‘body of work’ or a theme. When I add stock, I consider collections: my tribal collection, my resin and leather collection, or, my Holiday bling collection.
I’m presenting a one-woman Holiday Show 11am – 7pm Friday, November 18 at Silk Road Collection near the corner of Eubank and Spain in Albuquerque. A bling collection will figure prominently in my new work for this show. Who doesn’t need a little bling for the Holidays?
What about a blown glass focal with fabulous bronze pearls?
Or, consider the bead-bling appeal of rough-cut, faceted amethyst?
I have lots of ideas waiting in my stash!
Naturally, I’ll add resin earrings, such as these fire opal hearts with nail-head bezel detail. (NOTE TO SELF: Plan another ice-resin opportunity prior to this event!)
By popular request, I will feature additional bead-loom earrings in a variety of colors. These designs are light-weight, unusual, and sophisticated. In addition to the purple and turquoise, I’m planning to complete sets of black/gold and silver/blue.
In summary, my work is cut out for me. It’s less than one month until my Holiday Show at Silk Road Connection.
