Hope you can come to the opening of this group exhibition in Woodland, CA, where I will have two installations featured:
One is an indoor site specific installation of my “California Delta Rivers” first created in 2013 and re-configured to make a wall drawing installation for this exhibition focused on the water resources in northern CA. The work is made with handmade paper and cotton threads and pulp is dyed with fiber reactive dyes. Here is a photo of California Delta Rivers as installed at the Barn Gallery in Woodland.
I also have an outdoor installation in this exhibition. My “Flower Power” installation consists of many handmade paper “guns” with seeds for wildflowers in the pulp that will transform the “guns” over time into living blooming wildflowers. This installation is place in a prepared raised bed just outside the Barn Gallery, and focuses on using nature as a partner and the regenerative power of nature. The handmade paper will dissolve as mulch to nourish the earth and the seeds sprout and grow into blooming wildflowers. Here is a photo of “Flower Power” when it was first installed outside the Barn Gallery in Woodland.
My works are part of the group exhibition Women Eco Artists Dialog: The Legacy of Jo Hanson, at Yolo Arts, the Barn Gallery 512 Gibson Rd., Woodland, CA.
