Dec 14th Second Saturday Art & Culture Walk
Time & Location
About the Event
Start at The Muse Gallery on the corners of N Main and N 5th Streets. Three feature artists with an array of talents from macrame (knotting they call it, too!), to ceramics and alcohol inks, offer gorgeous AND functional art. Willow Wright incorporates native woods like algerita, manzanita, and mesquite or found objects like driftwood and seashells, crystals, rocks, and stones into her macrame. This is the perfect excuse for Miss Wright to visit beautiful places around the world as inspiration for her art, while finding just the right accoutrements to adorn her hangings.
Chandra Hemminger is inspired by the land of Northern Arizona, the ancient culture and the art of the region. Much of her work reflects this allure, as she blends the patterns of landscape topography and respectfully borrows design elements from the historical pottery of the Southwest Native Americans.
A few years go, Kimberley Stinson moved to Cottonwood with her husband and two dogs. She immediately fell in love with the beauty of her new desert home and found renewed inspiration in the discovery of Alcohol Ink. She loves the fluidity and vibrancy of the medium and has developed a unique, trademark style. Her boutique coasters and tiles have also been created by Muse students in-house during classes taught by Mrs. Stinson.
All three of these serve both purposes: with macrame and rare wood shelves for plants, ceramic mugs, plates and serving dishes, and alcohol ink wall hangings, as well as coasters. Both functional and beautiful. Who doesn't love a gift that was made by hand, and selected with love? For more Muse classes, events and hours, visit the-muse-gallery.com or call (928) 634-0003.
