Ever wondered how to make your passion for art into a business? Our Artist Business column offers a glimpse into the how, when, and maybe why a variety of artists have made that leap. In this issue Wen Redmond shares her story.
Our Fiber Reimagined exhibition features innovative contemporary art created from a variety of fibers and recycled and repurposed media. Used face masks, extension cords and rope, fishing net, cardboard, and so much more were brought from mundane to magnificent. Check it out!
Everyone has their own way of doing things, special materials and tools, and things they can’t create without. Each issue we ask an artist about their art, their techniques, and the space where all the magic happens. Be sure to check out our Artist Studio column, and meet Shelley Rhodes.
Profiled artist Rogan Brown’s artwork is about nature and the imagination. His labor-intensive pieces transform basic white paper into fantastical, hand-cut and layered creations that push paper to its limits.
