OPENING RECEPTION Sat. Sept. 17 noon – 2.
9th State Artisans is a group of 5 makers from New Hampshire. We met at the beginning of 2020 and have met each month since then challenging and supporting one another. Eventually we named ourselves. This is our first joint show.
Each member of this group works in different media. Steve Hayden is a fine furniture maker and sculptor who works in various metals, wood, and clay. Jane Balshaw and Cheryl Z. Miller are fiber artists with distinctly unique approaches to that medium. Jane paints and stitches fabrics to create art quilts and small sculptures. Cheryl creates fabric collages using hand dyed fabrics and machine stitching. Adele Sanborn is a mixed media artist who combines handmade paper, paint, photography, and calligraphy to create framed artwork. Lori Rollason is a potter who makes functional ware with a focus on surface decoration.
This show will offer a reminder that change, even challenging difficult change, can bring joy and beauty into our lives.
