Ladies Art Night
Jen Blake teaches tissue painted scarves

Monday, April 30th  Ladies Art Night: repeat by demand.

Create tissue painted silk scarves. This innovative technique uses art-tissue, water, vinegar & silk. You can be as creative as you’d like, cutting shapes, tearing, layering, color combinations, patterns etc… The scarves measure 8″ x 72″. $31 includes all materials. Thank you Jen Blake!

Portrayal of Women

Composed and expressive, these women are the artist’s family, idols and models. Janis Wagoner attended the College of Art and Design now known as CCS.  She enjoyed being part of the artist scene by working at the Detroit Artist Market.  Janis was the recipient of numerous awards from the Michigan Watercolor Society and once had a solo show at the DIA. I am pleased to share these oil paintings  (my mother’s) in the gallery until April 30th.
