The first meeting with Wonder Women 9 at Gaia Studio in Jersey City was incredible. You never know how much you miss and crave sitting around with other (like-minded) artists until you get the chance to enjoy that community again. It’s utterly thrilling to be in the mix again. Also, I had an incredibly clear view of NYC on the drive there and back.
My initial critique went well, but I have lots to consider and think about. My instincts were good on the initial concept, but now’s the time to tweak and make solid decisions to get things rolling. I started playing with a mock up at home out of leftover fabrics and upholstery foam. By creating the form and then draping fabric to fit, I was able to get a much better result (much like how you make clothes or create puppets). On to more work!
As part of our homework, we had to post a hello and intro to ourselves on the Gaia Wonder Women blog. Keep your eyes peeled on this site to learn about the other 9 amazing artists who are participating.
The Superfood Exhibition will be shown April 11 – May 23, 2015 at Aferro Gallery in Newark, NJ. Very exciting!
