Music Grows Here

 

FullSizeRender(2) Living in close proximity to Nashville has its benefits, like having musicians everywhere you turn. So many people move here from all parts of the world to try to make it big in Nashville. The local people also are steeped in musical heritage from the day they are born.

Our little town seems to have become a magnet to musicians and producers who want to be near the action in Nashville, but live in a beautiful, peaceful town. Many musical venues are starting to pop up all over and opportunities for hearing great talents without having to drive to to the big city are abundant.

The most logical next step is to have our own music festival. Announcing the Muletown Music Fest! October 2 & 3 in beautiful, downtown Columbia, TN. Click on the link for all of the details. There are free venues all over downtown as well as 3 ticketed venues. There will be a variety of musical styles to choose from as well as activities for the kids, making this a great family event.

I will have some new additions to my offerings at Wall Candy Custom Framing & Gallery to celebrate the event. There are new mixed-media paintings and jewelry with a musical theme.

Wall Candy will be having its own musical talent there on Saturday. From 12:00-3:00 we will have the lovely and talented Callie Hopper and at 4:00 we will have Sarina Joi-Crowe, a top 12 contestant from American Idol at 4! And guess what? It’s free!

New Art Journaling Class

1I’ve scheduled a new Art Journaling class for Monday, June 22 from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery in Columbia, TN. All materials will be included in the price except the journal. Bring your own, or purchase one from me for $5 extra. The price will be $25 per person. ($5 discount for extra family members) Please RSVP to me or to Wall Candy within 4 days of the class so I know how many supplies to bring. You may pay the day of the class or prepay using Paypal. Email me and I will send you the Paypal info.
For teenagers and adults.
Please share the link if you know people who might be interested. Class size is limited to 8 but I will make another class if there is enough interest.
Great for homeschoolers to encourage creative writing skills. Even if you are not interested in journaling, the techniques will be of anyone who is interested in mixed media collage.

Art Journal Workshop

 

Please join us as we construct art journals from “scratch”…as we say in the south. We will be assembling and binding journals out of watercolor paper. We will then paint the pages and explore different techniques for adding embellishments, found objects, and memorabilia. We will learn to add decorative lettering by hand and with stamps and by collage. When you leave the class, you will have a journal at least one completed page and with many of the pages with the base design ready to add your own unique thoughts and images, depending on how quickly you work.

Provided materials will include:

  • Watercolor paper
  • Paints
  • Markers
  • Stamps
  • Brushes
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Decorative papers
  • Binding twine and needles

Students should bring:

  • Black fine point pen (permanent)
  • Magazines with colorful patterns and images and faces
  • Favorite quotes, scriptures, or poems
  • An inexpensive watercolor set such as Prang or Crayola. (these have good pigments)
  • Any stamps, paint pens, decorative papers or memorabilia or ephemera that you may have that you might like to incorporate into your journal.

The cost for the class is $45 payable on the day of the class. Please email me at: stillwatersart@gmail.com and let me know by March 20th if you would like to participate. Class size limit is 8. If there is more interest, I will schedule another class at a later date.

The location is Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery in Columbia, TN.  Click the link for address details.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all there!

 

Having Some Fun Now

I had a bright and yummy surprise on a gray, wintry day. Goodies from Steph in Belgium! Merci beaucoup my friend! There are some goodies headed your way too!

I’ve really been having a lot of fun in the studio with my metal melding! It’s good to have the inspiration and the time to spend in the studio coincide. A couple of these have already sold, but the rest will be either at Wall Candy Gallery in Columbia, or Cliques Hair Salon. Our First Thursday Artisans Party is coming up next week!

I keep test driving the one above. I’m going to have a hard time parting with this one. I don’t keep many for myself, but I do have my favorites. Each one is unique and I rarely repeat one exactly.

I hope you can all come out and join the fun next Thursday at Wall Candy!

 

From The Workbench

I have a wonderful client who has been having me rescue some of her old jewelry and also to take some beads and other elements and combine them into something wearable. She found these beautiful African trade beads and chunks of turquoise and asked me to make them into a necklace. Here is the result, photographed on a photo that she did of a sunrise.

Then, my very creative friend Steph sent me a package of goodies. I took a picture of the things that she sent, but for some reason I can’t find it. I can show you what I did with some of the clay beads that she sent. The aqua colored donut shaped focals and the clay button clasp on the necklace above were from her and also the similar one on the necklace below.

The necklace below is some more of my metal melding. I found some orphan earrings in some old jewelry of my mom’s and the little starburst in the center is one of them. The dangles are torch fired enamel on copper.

Currently you can find my jewelry at Wall Candy Custom Framing and Gallery and Cliques Hair Salon in Columbia, TN. Also, if you are not local, just send me an email or a comment and I would be happy to conduct a transaction by mail.
