Dream Threads: Shop Show at Quirk Gallery


I briefly mentioned this show in my last post, but with the reception this evening, I thought it would be a good time to share a bit more about it here today! 

I'd been working on these paintings nonstop since returning from California, and it's so exciting to see them finally all neatly installed upon a freshly painted white gallery wall! My theme for this show was a collection of colorful watercolor paintings that could be hypothetical textiles, or that held a common or repeated geometric pattern which could be part of one. Patterns that are timeless - they could be worn, lived with, meditated on, enjoyed - and bright, vibrant colors that would fit right in with the summer sun. 
Pieces created with a principal intention of celebrating beauty and with a simple purpose of making viewers feel good. 

Quirk Gallery was nice enough to do a Q&A blog post on their featured work this month, which hasn't been posted yet, but I'll be sure to share the link when it does. And in the event that you happen to be in the Richmond area, the shows are up through the end of August!

  1. These are wonderful, Sara! If I wasn't 800 miles away I'd certainly head over to see this exhibit first hand. The next best thing was to click and enlarge, gaze at and appreciate your fine work. The patterns are indeed timeless and the bright colors engender a cheerful mood while at the same time soothing and comforting the beholder.

    Happy Thursday to you, dear friend. I hope the reception is a success and that you have a wonderful weekend as well!

    1. Thanks!! It's kind of weird in a way, now that this is up... that strange feeling of "okay, so what's next?" I'm sure you know what I mean! :) Thanks again for posting the Linweave Tarot deck - those illustrations are so beautiful and inspiring.

  6. Nice write-up! Being able to write creatively is something not all of us are capable of. Count yourself blessed because you have a talent. Getting into the mood in writing does not have a set of rules to follow. ‘To each his own’ is what people say; however, a list of suggestions wouldn’t hurt.how to write a novel
