Although I've heard about the Talmadge Art Show, the Spring show held this weekend was the first one I've been able to attend. Many wonderful jewelers, glass artists, ceramic artists and fabric purse designers were there. I was most impressed with these gorgeous Nuno felt pillows, with saturated, vivid colors and a myriad of textures. Turns out they were Arlene Watson's, a Grove customer, knitter, and beader. I knew Arlene's beautiful scarves but hadn't seen her pillows before. I'm just sorry that I wasn't able to get better pictures, because these don't do her work justice.
Arlene has Nuno Felt Workshops scheduled in May and June. To see her work, go to www.arlenewatson.etsy.com. For information, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Support your local artists!
