Backstreet Gallery Co-operative, showing in July, Featured Artists: Altered Artist, Meredith Draper and Painter/author, Jennifer French.
Meredith searches for and is inspired by oddments that can be blended together to create an original piece, either a free-standing assemblage, a wall hanging or jewelry. The hunt for these oddments in thrift stores and garage sales is half the fun. Each creation has its own individual flavor and bit of whimsy, the pieces come together in a one-of-a-kind piece dubbed, “Altered Art.”
Jennifer employs her marvelous sense of joy and humor in all of her work including hand painted cards, individual bookmarks and post cards, bearing inspirational quotes and original watercolors. Her latest work includes carved and painted linoleum blocks and colorful watercolors on archival stretched canvas, preserved by Dorland’s beeswax. Jennifer is also an author of two books for teenaged readers,
Second Saturday Art Tour: Backstreet Gallery invites you to a reception honoring these two artists on July 13th, 3-5PM at Backstreet Gallery, 1421 Bay Street, Old Town Florence.
