Pop-up Date Change
Just when you think you got it all figured out… Nature steps in and says,” Not so fast!”
The Holiday Pop-Up at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts has been pushed up to this Saturday, December 9th from 12 – 4pm. The one day shift is due to predictied rainy weather for Sunday. We hope that you have time to change your calendar and stop by to see what’s happening on Saturday.
As I wrote last time, I’ve been busy creating special new items for the Pop-up. and I have several new One-of-a-Kind felted ornaments to share.
They are: Moose Auditions for Santa, Bear finds a Tree, Knit, Emperor Pop, Camel Heads North, Santa Pig, Hockey Fox, and Snow Fairy. All but “Hockey Fox” are still available and will be at the Pop-Up event Saturday. I have been making a single One-of-a-Kind ornament available in the gallery as a teaser for the Pop-up. They have captured attention, and several of the ornaments shared last time already sold (Gallina Nix, Cozy, Deco-deer, Cocoa 2.) But don’t worry, I still have most of them here in my studio, and there will be a varied selection available on Saturday!
Also in the Gallery Now
I created a second nordic patterned sculpture specifically for our small side window at HGA. The gallery elves decorated that side widow in an extra special way for the season in cool hues of blue. I created Winter Stag for that window display. You can stop by and check him out, or even take him home.
Winter Stag features fine line needle felted wool patterns reminicent of embroidery. I create this effect by drawing out thin threads of twisted wool fiber, and then felt that down on the surface. In essence, drawing on the surface of my sculpture with the wool. This piece is needle felted wool over a wire and quilt batting armature. His eyes are iridescent glass beads, and his antlers are wool over wire and wrapped and secured with silver thread.
You will also find the gingerbread house HGA is hosting for the town’s tour and competition in that same window. After your visit, you can vote for the gingerbread house on the Hillsborough Chamber’s web site.
I have created a new set of caroling mice again this year. “Caroling Mice ’23” are belting out their carols in a full throated way just for you. They are already at HGA, and would also be happy to find thier forever holiday home.
Remember, Pop-Up Date Change!
I will have several other items available in our Pop-Up Shop tent and inside HGA on Saturday, stop by and see what they are. I hope that we made our change of plans early enough for you to change yours!
