My Art Displayed in Fundraising Show VSA

VSA is an organization that provides art programs for people with disablility.  Every year they have a fundraiser and sell original art pieces in an evening event. My friends Kim, Stacey, and Jen all worked on our pieces last Wednesday. The company supplies a 10 x 10 wooded board to create your art on. We all chose collage mixed media art. Here mine is hanging up with Kim's to the left and Stacey's below Kims boat landscape.
This pic shows the orange sticker they put on the paintings as they sell. I  sold mine as I can see from the photo. We weren't able to go Friday night due to sickness.

Here is my landscape collage. I used some batik paper , paste paper, unyru and other hand painted papers that I made to assemble together.

Printing on a plate- Art Saturday

Second Saturday of each month we get together with other artists to create different projects. This week we tried some monoprints. A monoprint is a unique one time print.We started with acrylic plates and brayered on ink and added stencils or marks.

Simone has a printing press in her garage she calls "Presslee"  so that's were we met this week.

Putting the plate in ready to print. We had to wet the paper first before we put it on top.

It was fun to meet some new people that came. Everyone had a different idea for their print.

Here are some of the results.

This was mine.

Can you find me in the pic?
We all had a great time. Thanks so much Sabyl and Simone for all your hard work planning and setting up for everyone!!
