February 2016

The gallery still has many of the beautiful, colorful gifts made me and my artist friends that were here during the holidays. And as before, each item is carefully made by hand and priced for generous gift-giving. There are some new additions, including more of my Eco Printed fabrics and papers.

In this season, the Pink House is focusing more on workshops and classes (check out my "Workshops and Classes" page), and I am exploring surface design and making more art of my own.

The gallery is open  any time my OPEN signs are out, especially on weekends. And I'm always happy to make an appointment with you. Just give me a call: 518.524.0533.

Below is a description of a past exhibit - please explore! More exhibits featuring fiber and mixed media art will be opening in early summer.

With huge gratitude to everyone who provided support to my Pink House Adventure,

On the Surface: Design on Fabric
Stack of fabrics by Beth Berman
Through November 22nd

See what it’s all about! Many fabric artists now design and embellish their very personal fabrics for use in their work. This practice is referred to as “surface design.” A simple definition in the fiber art world would be “the art of changing the appearance of fabrics using materials such as (but not limited to) paint, dye, stitch, transfers, ink, and digital images.” It’s a very broad and exciting field.

This exhibition of surface design techniques includes fabrics by six artists. Come to see what results when imagination, skill, and some simple supplies are applied to plain white fabric. The techniques used include
Screen printed, direct & immersion dyed by Cris Winters
monoprinting, deconstructed screen printing, shibori dyeing, direct application of paint and dye, stitching, and stamping. Explanations of the techniques will accompany the colorful fabrics in this exhibit.
