The Last of the Art For Sale, From The Bedlam Farm Open House……

October 10th, 2017

Well, I have a little more energy today and I think it shows in the Video Jon helped me with this morning.  I sold a lot of the work from yesterday’s video, but I still have a few pieces still available and I have a feeling there’s someone out there that they belong to.

So if you see something you like or have any questions, just email me here at maria@fullmoonfiberart.com.  I take checks and paypal.

Good Monday Morning From Bedlam Farm 10/9/17…. After the Open House

October 9th, 2017

It’s a rainy Monday morning, too wet to take my iphone outside to take a video.  And although the Open House is over for most people, it continues on this week for me.

Today I’ll be doing the books with my book-keeper Anne and I’ll spend the rest of the week getting my studio back in working order.

So a Monday morning video of the work I still have from the Open House seems appropriate.

Most of the artists took their work home with them yesterday, but I do have some of my work and some of the other artists work still available.  If you see something you like or have a question about, just let me know.

You can email here at maria@fullmoonfiberart.com.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Open House and helped make it so special and for everyone who didn’t, I hope you’re enjoying the pictures and posts about it from me and Jon.

Jon always amazes me in his ability to write and post his pictures even when I’m too tired to even speak.  So you can see more on his blog about the Open House here.  I do have a few picture to post and  plan on writing about it during the week.

 

The Open House, A Quiet Creative Revolution

October 8th, 2017

The Open House felt like a quiet creative revolution, its fingers reaching out across the country bringing people, who might otherwise not know each other,  together.

At one pm on Saturday, while Kathleen and Jackie danced on our back porch despite the drizzle the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen at Bedlam Farm II watched.  It included people who came from all over the country along with Ali and the kids on the RISSE soccer team and some of the people who live at the mansion.

And that was before the sheep shearing and poetry reading, which took up the rest of the afternoon.

Today was quieter, but just as sweet.

It rained in the morning and I was sure it would rain all day.  I planned to bring my computer into my gallery and sell art online, expecting no one to come to the Open House.  But just before 11am the sun came out and the farm filled up with people once again.

I’m too tired to write about it more right now.  But whether you were there or not I hope you’ll enjoy this short video of The Sister’s of the Shawl.

Fiber Art Jewelry By Kris Gregson Moss At The Bedlam Farm Open House

October 5th, 2017

A couple of years ago Jon bought me one of Kris’ necklaces.  Then he bought me another.  I didn’t know Kris at the time, but then Carol Conklin told me about her.  I love her work and I knew if she was Carol’s friend I’d want to have her at the Open House.

I’m drawn to her fine sewing and the mix of materials she uses in her work.  Each one is like a tiny sculpture that you can wear.  They’re soft and hard and move when you do, small beads bouncing off each other throwing light and the quietest sound.

If you see one of Kris’ necklaces or a pin that speaks to you,  and you’d like it, let me know.  If you’re coming to the Open House I can save it for you.  If not I can send it to you.  They vary in price from $34- $48.

Oh, and the one with the dancing woman on it is already sold.   I’ll be wearing it at the Open House this weekend.

Any questions or requests you can email me here at maria@fullmoonfiberart.com.

Horse History, Hand Painted Silk Scarves by Carol Law Conklin at the Bedlam Farm Open House

October 5th, 2017

I’ve been trying to post Carol’s video for two days and it finally went up.  I even edited it thinking maybe it was too long.

You don’t get to see all her hand painted silk scarves in the video, but it gives a good idea of what she’d doing with them.

If you see one you like and are coming to the Open House I can hold it for you.  If you’re not coming to the Open House and would like one you can email me with questions or requests here at maria@fullmoonfiberart.com.   Carols scarves range in price from $70 to $100.

You can see more of Carol’s work on her blog Amity Farm Batiks.

Owl Eyes. Jane McMillen’s Soft Sculpture Pin Cushions at the Bedlam Farm Open House

October 4th, 2017

I spent the day hanging the show in my School House Gallery.  It got dark before I thought to take a picture of what I had done so far.  Most of the work is in place, now it’s a matter of cleaning up and labeling everything.

I took video’s of all the artists who dropped off their work and will be posting them tonight and tomorrow.

Jane dropped off her pincushions yesterday.  In the video is a quick look at some of the pincushions she made this year.  If you see something you like and have any questions let me know, or would like one of them, just let me know.

If you’re coming to the Open House and want me to save something for you, also let me know.

I’ll be posting another video of the work in my Gallery tomorrow or Friday.  I’ll be selling the work on-line as well as in person this weekend.

You can email me here at maria@fullmoonfiberart.com with any questions.

A Shrug Made From Vintage Scarves and Hankies For The Bedlam Farm Open House

October 4th, 2017

Kim McMillan was able to create out a pattern for a Shrug.  She used pieces of silk and wool scarves and hankies and even a piece from an apron to create this shawl-like drape.

Kim will be at the Open House working the register on Sunday.  I’ll also have some of her Needle Punch Pillows and Aprons for sale in my School House Gallery this weekend at the Bedlam Farm Open House.
