Unity in Diversity is my latest upcoming solo exhibit.
After the last few years of Covid and division I wanted to create something that was both beautiful and unifying and thus “Unity in Diversity” was born. Each painting in this series uses texture and color to visually represent and emphasize the beauty of differences and how when we unite our diversity with others we form a vibrant and beautiful work of art called community. This exhibit is a celebration of individuality and diversity but instead of having those qualities divide us they unite us.
Each painting is a unique expression of Unity in Diversity and represents on a microcosm scale our global diversity.
Well I’m back after a longer than intended break from blogging which honestly is pretty much how all my posts start it seems *sigh* oh well, I suck at maintaining a blog we all know it and the sooner we accept it we can get on with talking about Art…
So I’ve started off the year pretty busy actually, we’re not even a full month in and I’ve already
taught two Art & Jewelry related classes through the city’s leisure guide program.
The first was “Silverware Jewelry” and the second which is a 3 session course is “Intro to Acrylic Abstract Art”, the first class was last night and we played around with types of acrylic paint and acrylic mediums.
I’ve also been nominated for the Women in Arts award as part of a local International Women’s Day Awards Gala which funnily enough I was approached last year by the committee to create their Jewelry Trophy Awards for the Awards Gala. So I’m finishing up some hand stamped sterling silver charm bracelets with swarovski crystals.
And on top of all that, I’ve also been busy working on hand stamped Jewelry orders and painting and experimenting with fluid paints and my enamels.
I picked up one of these awesome panels over the weekend and had been dying to test it out but didn’t have time until today so ce I’ve been prepping things for my Art class.
So I just finished a piece this morning. Here are the in progress pics, I’m just waiting for it to dry now 🙂
