This week we have a break from Working in a Series 1. Our next assignment is due in a week. During this pause I wanted to share with you another study that I completed this winter. It is posted in New Work as well as Small Works on my site.
I am a member of a local group of talented Fiber Artists. The name of our group is MIX. It is an acronym for "Material In the eXtreme. We meet once a month. During our meetings we decide collectivley what subject we want to render, how many pieces for a given theme, size and format, and any other specifics that is important for the final presentation that we work on individually but in coordination as a group. We also support one another as artists, critique work, as well as explore topics we are interested in pertaining to Fiber Art.
This week we have an upcoming show that we hung today. Here is the information piece that was created for the event:
In my class "Working in a Series" our focus last week was color. That seems like a pretty easy subject, especially for someone who LOVES color!
Well it is a pretty big box of crayons when you think about it. Which one do you choose? We had many different suggestions for our focus with color. We could select one of the class assignments or write our own. I did a little bit of both. Because I have selected a smaller format to work in I was able to complete several pieces of work last week. The works that I created are right around 10" x 12".
It's been a week since I started my class with Lisa Call / Working in a Series. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate all the work, thoughtfulness, and material that she puts into her classes. If this is week one, I can't imagine where I will be on this journey 9 weeks from now, pretty exciting!
Our first assignment(s) were focusing our attention on selecting our subject matter or focus for our series. A series can take on so many personalities and or attributes. To name a few, it can be focused on a feeling or emotion like joy, or death and loss for example. Another idea could have a focus around a tangible item like an apple or seed pods .... you get the idea. Or it may be about a study with shapes or color where these become the primary focus.
