Heather Hansma, the fabulous artist and curator of the Dia de los Muertos show at the Starkweather Arts Center has been posting photos from the show to her Flickr account. I’ve only posted the couple images where you could see my Gato de Frida Kahlo. There are lots of great photos of fantastic works over at Heather’s Flickrstream and on her blog. Do yourself a favor and go check it out. If you click on the pictures here, you will be taken to her Flickrstream to see the larger size and the rest of her photos. Enjoy.
My Gato de Frida Kahlo is part of this show that opens Friday at the Starkweather Arts Center in Romeo, Michigan. The exhibition will be on display through November 5. I unfortunately will not be able to view the show in person and hope to see lots of photos. If any of you dear readers are in the vicinity, do drop by and snap some pics, won’t you?
I created this lovely critter for inclusion in the Day of the Dead show in Romeo, Michigan at the Starkweather Arts Center. She is one of a kind, larger than I usually make, black chenille yarn crocheted cat with bone colored chenille yarn chains hand sewn to surface in skeletal shapes. Vintage silk flower head adornment and new bead necklace. If you live near Romeo, the show opens October 7. Let me know if you go.
Oh how I wish I had lots of money and no day job. Because if that was true, I’d be heading down to Oaxaca, Mexico, to celebrate the Dia de los Muertos and visit the studios of the Oaxacan artists whose work I adore. Here’s just one of the web sites with itineraries I dream of: http://www.mocadventures.com/
There are many other sites all offering fun and interesting trips as well. I picked this tour because they offer artist studio tours. There are way too many other possible tours to list. Ask Mr. Google. But do click on this link and you will be whisked to the tours’ Flickr group of fabulous photos.
Every year on November 1st I wish I was in Oaxaca. Someday.
