On Christmas eve I had an early present when I went to the Newton Free Library to view Georgette Benisky's show, " The Art of the Doll". The show runs through Dec. 30th (I know it is short notice but if you can get there it is worth it!!) I found the show magical and inspiring ~ full of color and beautiful fabrics. Her dolls have a wonderful presence that took me in. One of my favorite pieces is Blanc ~ it made me stop and exhale, such a welcomed experience during the crazy holiday season!! As an artist i was very taken by the different materials and processes. I felt quite a kinship with the work - the wrapped arms of some of the dolls were similar to the tentacles on Medusa. And I was just plain moved by the fabrics and embrodiery. It was inspiring because I have been playing around with more ideas that revolve around fabric!! I so loved making Lush and really want to m
So if you are in the neighborhood of the Newton Free Library (330 Homer Street, Newton Center) take the time to stop in and see the show - it is really a treat!!!
thanks & peace ~
