A sneak peek at the new art show!

I’m just going to share a couple “teaser” images with you today, down the line I’ll share each of the new pieces up close & personal. I couldn’t be more delighted with how this show looks! Our artwork blended effortlessly and seems like they were made to show together.

It’s a fun mix with her abstract canvas work and my dimensional art! There are a lot of other art surprises included but this gives you a good feel for the show. Don’t forget that tonight is the private opening and tomorrow is the public opening/gallery walk from 5-9.

I am also busy creating upcycled envelopes and invitations to the private opening of this upcoming show! If you will be in the Indianapolis area on June 1st and would like to be invited to the private opening please send an email with your mailing address to info@lynnemedsker.com and I would be honored to send you an invitation.

I’ve been busy the past several months exploring different media and materials, especially things that are often discarded. Magazines, newspapers, scrap metal, styrofoam, plastic lids, old books, aluminum cans, used albums & CD’s, wood scraps, packing materials and have even found a few objects that I am not even sure what they were used for! It’s been an interesting journey but now I am narrowing my focus to a handful of those materials and producing new work especially for this show. I will continue to share peeks at the process over the next month. It has really opened my eyes to all the possible materials and genres that can be created by re-imagining and re-purposed items. I’ve even re-created some of my own artwork into something new & different!

I do hope you’ll be able to attend the show at some point during the month of June…I am really excited to share my journey with you.

Blessings,

Lynne

We will push our creativity out of the smaller “round circle in a square box” format and create some interesting art in a larger format, using the techniques learned in the “Intro to Mandala Art” class.  Once the basic design is created the addition of watercolor paints will add another element of fun to our playful art.

Time to Make Mandalas!

It’s been quite a while since I’ve presented an “Intro to Mandala Art” class. That’s changing on July 25th when I’ll host a workshop at ArtSplash Gallery in Carmel, Indiana. Although these beautiful creations look very intricate the method of creating them is really quite simple. I’ve often called them “organized doodles” – and everyone can doodle!

Conflicts with your dinner hour? Feel free to grab your dinner and bring it with you. Or stop in at TeaBuds right down the street and get a freshly made ice tea to stay hydrated and refreshed. Heck, I don’t mind if you bring along some wine to sip. 🙂
