The Studios are OPEN this Weekend
My studio is an enormous mess right now!! Why you ask? Well, in anticipation of Open Studios at 1890 Bryant plus at other buildings throughout the Mission, I have been creating lots of new work! New work involves lots of supplies. If you walked into my studio today, you'd find tubes of paint scattered about and piles of hand made paper of various colors and texture thrown on a table. On another table you'd find an assortment of fabrics in spectacular prints. If you turned around you'd see my jewelery making supplies: beads, chains and findings. Its a mess inside studio 318!!!
By Friday at 6:00, you will find an altogether different scene. Studio 318 will become Estudio Martita!! Inside you will find wonderful new mixed media work ranging from a new Dia de los Muertos Series, Frida Kahlo images, Tina Modotti images and some great new additions to the Thick Girl Series. Add to that some fabulous new upcycled handbags adorned with Frida, calavera and Ranchera images. Add a few home accessories to the mix and last but not least there will be new jewelry adornments made from vintage beads.
So much to see with plenty of time to peruse!!
