Featured Artist for August 2022:
In this show, “Square-Dancing Flowers”, Norma tried something quite different for her. Needing to use some new 2’ x 4’ canvases and needing a painting in orange and green for a guest bathroom she decided to use a whimsical background of tiles. This project, “Square-Dancing Daylilies”, turned out so well she began looking for other plants to do in different colors. This show is about half of the product of those efforts.
The next project was inspired from primulas in her sister's garden. Like the daylilies, they seem to be reaching for the sky to be seen and leaning and dancing in the breeze. Then, of course, daffodils had to be done.
Norma Eaton is a collage artist with a passion for beautiful landscapes not on display this month. She works, primarily, in collage with papers she paints herself using a variety of techniques and textures to create realistic and fanciful landscapes, in this case colorful background tiles. She then cuts out shapes from these painted papers and glues them to a surface with clear permanent acrylic gel medium. They are varnished so no glass is needed to display them. Her art can be seen at the Art in the Valley Gallery and on her Facebook art page at https://m.facebook.com/normacollageartist.
So "dance in" and see us this month!
