Unseen Forces - opening today!
I've been a little quiet lately, but it's because I've been putting the finishing touches on a huge show with Chris Ryniak, called Unseen forces! I've been talking about it a lot on social media, but have neglected to blog about it, so here are some details.
New works by Chris Ryniak and Amanda Spayd
Opens September 5, 2014, and runs for one month.
Both artists will be attending the opening reception, which is Friday, September 5 at 6pm at Stranger Factory, in Albuquerque, NM.
Information about the preview, sales, and how the show works at the gallery can be found here: http://strangerfactory.com/exhibitions-current
I feel like I've grown leaps and bounds with my work in this show....it may not be super evident right now, but in the coming shows, it will be very obvious. I've learned so much more about using different materials, and incorporating different techniques into my work. I've also been learning my new sewing machine's capabilities, experimenting with fabric coloring techniques, and getting my hands dirty with resin and power tools in new ways. It's been frustrating, exciting, exhausting, and amazing all at the same time.
Well - have to go finish setting the show up in the gallery today! Maybe I'll see you tonight at the reception? Full photos of the work coming soon.
