Mini Masterpieces Upcycled Sweater Christmas Ornaments

IMG_3022IMG_0415

My husband and I participate in a local art club, Art Jam, at the Rhythmix Cultural Works. Every month or two The K Gallery (where incidentally we held our very small wedding two and a half years ago) has  an new exhibit.  This coming month the exhibit is called “Mini Masterpieces.”  It’s an opportunity for Art Jam folks to display their small works of art for people to shop for Christmas and holiday presents.  FH put in various small paintings, and I put in my upcycled sweater ornaments.

IMG_3022 2It’s nerve-wracking for me to try to sell my stuff, I always get a little weird about it.  I am a private person and am pushing myself to display my arts and crafts, and to blog here about my life and loves.  It’s a practice for me to “be in the world,” as I spent much of my life daydreaming and worrying.  Being in my body and here, now, doing whatever it is I’m doing takes breathing and remembering to rest in each moment.  On the plus side, I have to say, it’s also fun and exciting to be out in this world participating and connecting.

The opening of the show is Friday November 14th.  The K Gallery is always open the evening of the 2nd Friday of the month, as are many other galleries in Alameda and Jingletown (the part of Oakland very close to Alameda).  If you are local, stop on by!

  2. I know how you feel! I can relate to trying to “be in the world” – that’s a good way to put it. It’s a challenge to put yourself out there. Thanks for sharing. I think you’re a talented writer and look forward to seeing more of your art & photos. – Deb
