As you know, the Arts Center is closed until further notice. However, we have an incredible Juried Show to share. We are moving the 45th online. Each day (see menu to the left) in the morning hours we will post a new work on display in the galleries with a short story.
Hi! I’m Ann (Annie) Sears @sears8644 “Looking from Outside In” (fiber-thread painting, freestyle embroidery) was inspired by textile artist Lindsay Taylor from the UK and Malin Lager from Sweden. I stitched this image of my husband, Mark, from a photo in the early 70’s, onto an applique version of his 66 pickup truck he now still owns. It’s covered by a thread stitched trumpet vine to represent the life that he has rooted over the past 70 years. I am drawn to beautiful things in nature, and to textiles, for the colors and textures and enjoy imaging how to mesh the two. I love Athens creative energy.
