I’ve been by the Francine Seders Gallery a million times but it has never been open. Today, for the first time, it was, as a part of the annual Greenwood-Phinney Art Walk! Yay.
The first image I saw at the gallery, and already, we’re off to a good start. This new body of work by Maysey Craddock features silhouettes of gouache trees, painted on paper bags sewn together with silk thread. Trees are certainly not a new theme but this is beautiful.
Same as above, but it’s much more obvious in this one that the canvas is nothing but a paper bag. Look forward to seeing more by Craddock, a painter and sculptor from Memphis (who is currently living and working in Munich).
“The Memory of a Tree” – A slight departure from the above pieces, this piece was embroidered on a found textile piece. $2,000.
Silhouetted figures in various positions. Ink on semi-transparent paper. By Pat DeCaro.
Mixed media collage by Gail Grinnell. Acrylic on polyester, silk, and paper.
More to come from the Greenwood/Phinney Art Walk.
