Simply incredible art works of various mediums and most incredible is the hand embroidered bead work of massive proportions. This scene is approx. 4'x4' and the colors are vibrant. Must be seen close up to understand the dynamic projects he creates. A variety of wall installations with hundreds of collectible key chains and antique knives is mesmerizing too. through Jan 14, 2018 you can check out on 2nd floor of Warhol Museum.
With all the unsettling screw-ups with our credit reports recently I thought a good way to redirect our efforts to give ourselves credit would be to obtain our "Creative Score" instead. So check out this new way to check yours. Visit: http://www.harmonyartsbooks.com/creative-score.html
MARY HOGAN Visited in June
Mary visited Creative Harmony Arts & Books and attended the Harmony Wine Walk after speaking at the Zelienople Library!! Read her novel, The Woman in the Photo to catch the fascinating comparison of this historical fiction tale to the real deal tragedy in Johnstown's South Fork Fishing and Hunting Club in the late 19th century.
Mom's Gonna Love it!
Special presents just in for Mother's Day: Does she love animals? These safari pets powder printed onto glass for coasters will top the list of the best things she receives. Renee Ayers has offered them exclusively for the shop to carry since she'll be sharing her skills in glass fusion in future classes.
Fun was had by all creating glass coasters. We used glass frit, confetti and rods and a flame to design with creative flair. Thanks for attending and thank you Renee Ayers for taking time out of your busy schedule to teach this creative process and fire the projects for us.
Hope to do it again in the fall and Renee says definitely an ornament class as winter approaches.
A Pig's Favorite Things
This little piggy has read some classic novels. And this is where pigs go to retire-- The bookshelf.
Relevance & Resilience
Some of the hardest subjects to discuss are available to be read first. The controversy over newest Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why is getting the discussion going before the consequences of teen issues end in tragedy. Other subjects are easier to read but just as relevant to society.
Glass Fusion Class Not to Be Missed!
May 6th @ 1:00 p.m. has room for TWO more students. Cost: $45.00 for making a fabulous one-of-a-kind set of 4 coasters for your Mother's Day present or for your upcoming graduate who won't want to forget the coasters they used at home. You can also make them into hanging plaques by adapting with a small wire loop. Come get loopy and make your own creations. Check out details on website: www.harmonyartsbooks.com
