We've Been Framed @ MPL!

Here are the fabulous pieces the FANE group has on display at the Mahopac Public Library.  There's still time to see it all in person - the show is up until May 31st!

These three lovely floral pieces were created by Barbara Drillick, Joyce Sullivan, and Barbara Sferra.  They are called "Sunny Couple,"  "Blue Blossom," and "Cranesbill."

In this group, we have "Why-ree I" by Nancy Mirman (love the use of wire as well as the construction), "Spring's Gifts" by Gail Ellspermann, and "Balance" by Judy Gignesi.   The colors in these three are so soothing and they seemed to belong together.  It's interesting how the coordinating blue frames set each piece apart, yet also unify the whole group.

This untitled piece was created by Vivien Zepf and was a favorite of my daughter's.

Donna Chambers added a screen over her frame to further the city feel of her piece "Twin Donnas in New York." There's so much going on in this piece, just like the city itself - movement, action, color, excitement!

Christine Wilhelm used needle-felting techniques in her piece titled "Wind Goddess," and Linda Long did a lot of thread painting by machine in her piece "Nevermore Again."

Below is my piece, "Serenity." I got lots of positive comments about the zen qualities of the piece.

Another of my favorites, this is "Monique" by Carole Hoffman.  I just love her quirky characters on their colorful backgrounds.

This is Joanne Lubchenko's "Lazy Summer Day."  Kind of similar to mine in that mellow, minimalist way...

These pieces are "Modern Hexies" by Claire Oehler, "Blue Moon" by Nike Cutsumpas, and "Fractured IV" by Norma Schlager.  The artists' expertise in technique are very obvious here!

Martha Buhl created "Winter's Peace," Paula West stitched "Pebbles among Boulders," and Natalya Aikens crafted "Atlant sp63."  Again, three outstanding pieces!  Please come by the library to see them all up close!

Renee Fleuranges-Valdes' "Gears of Life" is also stunning to see in person.

And finally, here are "Buddah" by Cecelia Leiseroff, "Man and Woman" by Carolyn Spiegel, and "Pastiche 14" by Jane Davila.  If you live within driving distance of the Mahopac Public Library, don't miss the show!
