Trashy Women in two places at once!
The Trashy Women take on the Dumpster Divas at the Elkton Art Center and simultaneously take over the Gates Gallery at West Nottingham Academy in Colora MD for an intensive installation mid March-April, 2009.
See one, see them all! There's never enough Trashy Women in the world! And speaking of which, we welcome Caryn Hetherston of Newark DE to the Trashy Women fold! We are honored to have such a fine sculptor /jeweler in our midst.
It's here, it's heavenly, it's hot off the press-- Read all about the Trashy Women in the newest issue of the Oxfordonian; a magazine published by the Oxford, PA's Chamber of Commerce---
I was honored to be asked to write about this warm-hearted and generous group --- in part to bring attention to the inventive and economical Trashy Women Workshops that will be offered (thanks to Richard Beards of the Bookplace and the Oxford Arts Alliance) starting February 2009 in the spacious Simon Building at 38 South Third Street as well as the TW exhibition planned for September 2009 in the same space...so peruse these pages and stay tuned for more!
Perryville, MD - --Now hear this, now hear this —the Trashy Women are cleaning up on both sides of the Susquehanna this summer! Oooh and ahh at what eight Divas of the Dumpster have done from June 28 through August 8 at Studio 432, 432 Aiken Avenue in Perryville MD (www.studio432.biz ) & at the Liriodendron Mansion in Bel Air MD August 24-October 5 (http://www.liriodendron.com/ )
Scrabble tiles, kitchen appliances, cement mixers, bangles and buttons…recycling takes a whole new direction when this gorgeous gaggle of garbage gals get a hold of it. Studio 432 hours are Wednesday through Sunday 11 am to 5 pm, and the opening reception is on Saturday June 28 from 3 to 9 pm. The Liriodendron is open on Sundays from1-4 pm and the opening reception is Sunday August 24th.
Intriguing, inventive and economical Trashy Women classes were offered nearly every Saturday throughout July at Studio 432; call 410-642-6749 or visit the Studio 432 website to see when the next one is happening!
Sue Eyet was featured on HGTV's Look What I Did! When she's not cutting up tin cans, she transforms dominoes, wire and scrabble tiles into an entomologist's dream come true.
Maggie Creshkoff is a peripatetic potter with the itchiest of fingers...there are those who say that she simply cannot pass a dumpster by!
Jo Pinder plies her brush at Eldreth Pottery for much of the week, and attends powwows whenever she can, but has turned her fine eye and hand to the elements of compositions in all manner of materials for Trashy Women IV.
Sarah Lamb is a printmaker and book artist from New Orleans who Fate and Hurricane Katrina have thrown in with the grateful Trashy Women.
Mindy Jarusek is a marvel with machinery, and confounds all Luddites by bringing inanimate objects to life; when not doing that she works for a small press specializing in the horror genre: check it out at www.cemeterydance.com
Shelli Liddell hails from the Montana mountains. She uses found objects and current events to limn a very personal iconography onto these altered egos.
Donna Steck encapsulates wordy wearables with her Message in a Bauble made from garment labels and tubing.
Caryn Hetherston is a jeweler from Newark DE, and her work runs the gamut from trash to treasure. More can be seen at her websitehttps://home.comcast.net/~carynlh/
Trebs Thompson, a sculptor and farmer from Delaware has joined our ranks!
The Mission of the Trashy Women
1. We will find unexpected beauty in the discarded and the rejected;
2. We will share this with others, through teaching and through the exhibition of our own art;
3. We will encourage each member to develop her own artistic potential.
We give many thanks to our sponsor Jim Racine -- patronize BayView Auction and purchase the fine items he offers before we get our trashy paws on them. http://www.racineauction.com/ will tell you all about the next auction coming up !
There is such beauty all around us...
