Islay Taylor to show at Craftland

Hera Gallery Director, Islay Taylor, will be showing 11 new pieces at the upcoming exhibition Material Desires at the Craftland Gallery. Islay will be showing brightly colored neckpieces, made of beads, thread, and a reflective industrial material called Retroglo. These works examine the use color, composition, and reflectivity in adornment.

At the tail-end of winter, we all get a little stir crazy, waiting for the colors of spring to pop againFeaturing bright work for a dull season, this show will include Jenine Bressner, Lynne Harlow, Peter Lutz, Jennifer Maestre, Barbara Owen, and Islay Taylor. The Craftland Gallery will be filled with primary colors and patterns to thaw the mental freeze of winter. Colored pencils, fabric, glass, jewelry and paint will fill the gallery with eye-popping warmth and wonder.

Opening reception for Material Desires is Thursday, February 11th from 5-8pm.
2/11/10 – 3/13/10
Material Desires, Rebecca Siemering guest-curator
