February 2013 Program and Class

 Program and Speaker information

February 16, Saturday our featured speaker is Gail Crosman Moore. She is a nationally known award winning multidisciplinary artist. She brings us many years of experience, both as a teacher and a student. We are delighted to welcome her to San Diego.

Gail Crosman Moore received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in Art Education.  Her explorations of visual and tactile arts has given her a love of surface, form, texture and color that transcends any one media.
Although Gail's work has spanned many different fields and materials, a lifelong obsession with the essential, ancient seed pod has informed her work in all media. Whether she is painting, hammering, folding, sewing, or working in fire, it's certain that various forms of the Pod, the vessel of life, will emerge.
She has won many awards including Saul Bell in 2009, and an A.R.T. Grant and was invited to teach in Japan, Switzerland, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Great Britain. Her work has appeared in Ornament, Beadwork, Bead and Button and Lamagga magazines. 
Our program is an overview of the many materials she has explored, always coming back to the need to get her pieces out of 2D and into 3D, and to achieve complex surfaces by adding multimedia. She is drawn to explore the yin/yang, hot/cold, hard/soft, shiny /matte dichotomy to arrive at a visual and tactile surprise.
Class Information

On February 17th, Sunday and the 18th Monday (Presidents' Day Holiday) she is teaching a class on felted decorative objects involving the use of beads, sequins, glass and metallic enhancements to create items similar to the the photos below.
