|An original design by Rayo; this|
piece is called "In the Woods."
So when Rayo invited me to exhibit my calligraphy/watercolor things with her sophisticated creations at our local gallery, I was nervous but energized. I got busy.
Below are some of the thirty or more original calligraphy artworks you'll see at our exhibit called In the Woods -- a title we chose to reflect the feeling we had in stretching our range as we prepared for the exhibit.
Go to www.flickr.com/photos/rayo_boursier to see some of the fabulous beadwork pieces that Rayo will present at this exhibit as well.
The exhibit opens Friday, September 2 with a reception from 4 to 6, at Drury Gallery at the Portage Center for the Arts. Open hours are September 2 through October 1, 2011 Wed-Fri 1-6, Sat 10-3. Admission is always free.
