Warm and Cozy…. “Waiting for Spring” at Markings Gallery in Bath, March 1 to April 1, with a Gallery reception March 17, from 12-4pm with artist’s demos of felting…. and just possibly a performance of belly dancers!
We are all familiar with Maine euphemisms for our seasons. “Maine has two seasons: winter and preparing for winter.” Or how about: “Maine has two seasons: winter and August.” March is notorious for teasing us with a few warming days and plenty of mud!
So let’s cozy up and make the wait colorful and comfortable.
The scarves of Fiona Washburn (featured in photo) are hand painted with extraordinary detail on silk, and silk velvet. Kris Sandoy creates marvelous felted hats and scarves in a wonderful palate of colors and styles.
Janice Jones has transitional weight scarves and lovely vests to help chase dreary spring weather away.
Warm up your living space with the glorious rag rugs of Hillary Hutton. Hector Jaegar’s hand dyed wool rugs invite one to settle in and muse on his contemporary exploration of color and design.
And for tickling the sense of the absurd the tea cozies of Susie Stephenson will make one smile away the winter blues.
60+ artists are represented in Markings Gallery. Their work inspires us to keep looking for the beauty in each day, no matter the weather outside.Warm and Cozy…. Waiting for Spring
