I’ve been creating fine art towards a one-woman exhibit in June at Burnt Bridge Cellars, a winery in Vancouver WA.  I’ve also been going to music events and cafe’s when I can. These kinds of events have been inspiring lots of the artwork I’ll have at the exhibit.  You can see some of my sketch-work towards my exhibit in my book: “Dogs by Sue Clancy” https://store.bookbaby.com/book/Dogs-By-Sue-Clancy

Also a musician friend gave me some old sheet music. I’ve been using it in my mixed media cut paper collages along with my hand-dyed papers – and I intend to do so with this piece too…

Here’s what’s on my work table:

As readers of my blog and facebook posts know I recently had an art exhibit opening at Burnt Bridge Cellars http://www.burntbridgecellars.com/ a winery in Vancouver Washington. The wine inspired some new art… You see, during the opening party the sunlight streamed in through the large windows opposite the tasting room bar. In between talking with people I enjoyed watching the sunlight play on the wine as it poured from the bottle into the glasses. So over the next day or so I experimented with paper marbling techniques in an attempt to “catch” my memory of the light on pouring red wine. Eventually I had a pleasing-enough pattern design. Here is my pattern – and here’s a photo of a scarf I made with it that I’ve titled “Red Wine Pouring”. You can get that scarf – or view my entire art-apparel collection here: http://shopvida.com/collections/voices/sue-clancy

This Friday July 1st at Burnt Bridge Cellars http://www.burntbridgecellars.com/ the winery will be pouring some of their SF International Wine Competition award winning wines! Wahoo! Congrats Burnt Bridge! Oh yes and 20 of my fine art pieces will be hanging on the wall! So after we each get a glass of wine we might look something like this:

Here are some photos of my fine art in the process of being exhibited at a winery, Burnt Bridge Cellars in Vancouver Wa, for a First Friday event, June 3 2016 www.burntbridgecellars.com

At the winery I’ll have new artwork in an exhibit titled “Enjoying Time”. The opening starts at 4pm Friday evening and includes music, food and wine and, of course, visual fine art.  (The exhibit will be available until the end of July – see the winery’s website for their hours)

I like having my artwork in winery’s – especially when there is good food prepared by a chef (like at the Burnt Bridge Cellars), and music – because my artwork in general is about taking time to enjoy small moments. So what better way to amplify my artistic thoughts than to exhibit my art in a way that can engage all of the senses?

Fortunately my art agents at Caplan Art Designs agree and aid and abet my efforts! (The gallery owner brought some of my artwork from the gallery and consulted about the display at the winery!) www.caplanartdesigns.com

Here is my “Enjoying Time” exhibit statement:

“After attending a symphony followed by a multi-course dinner and drinks with friends I began thinking about time; musical time, cooking time… finding, taking and spending time on things that bring joy to life.  I thought about how our lives are entirely made up of time and it’s up to us to use our time well.  So I began to collect, from my daily life, my own “enjoyable moments” – and recreate them for you with some of my favorite animals.”

And here (finally!) are the promised photos –

more wine and other wonders

Another party, um I mean art opening, at Burnt Bridge Cellars! July 3rd from 4 to 9 pm – there will be live music, art and a chef creating 4 or so Greek dishes and, since this art exhibit is in a winery it goes without saying that there will be wine!!! Here’s one of my handmade paper collage artworks at the exhibit:

wine art and other wonders

I’ve been busy getting ready for another art exhibit.  This one is at a winery! The opening party is the evening of June 5th during “First Friday” at Burnt Bridge Cellars http://www.burntbridgecellars.com/ in Vancouver Washington and Caplan Art Designs (my Portland Oregon area gallery) http://www.caplanartdesigns.com/ is facilitating things. I’m so excited! Did I mention that there will be really wonderful wine? There will be my artwork too – like this piece posted here. It is titled “Massive Mastiff Munching” and it’s a pretty, ahem, large sized piece. It’s a one-person show so there will be lots of my work of varying sizes and all with my warped sense of humor.  But did I tell you about the fantastically fabulous wines that will be available for tasting at the opening? Cheers dears!    MassiveMastiffMunching72
