We were fortunate to have Heidi de Contreras, gallery artist, demonstrate the process of paper making.  Heidi takes it one step further and turns the result into beautiful art work.

For some of us, this was a new experience having not seen paper prepared this way before. Heidi started with a large bowl, assorted shredded papers, and hot water. Somewhere in the process, a food mixer came into play. She spoke of color and texture and how to achieve different effects.

We all got to try our hand at flattening the wet mixture into shapes and setting it to dry on newspaper. Much fun!

Heidi brought along examples of paper she had made previously and used one to demonstrate how she turns each into a work of art. Photos of the process are posted below.

If you were not there, you missed a great evening.

We had a fun evening visiting with old and new friends.  Everyone enjoyed sampling our chili tasting and participating in the drawing for a piece of art work.

Our artists brought in wonderful and new pieces of art for this event and it was a pleasure for us and others to see them.

These works will be hanging for a few weeks, try to get by to see them.  For those of you who cannot, I am posting a few photos for you to enjoy.

Our guest artist for January is Dana Hutchins from Bartlesville.  Her incredible work can be seen in the second photo.  She and other gallery artists have prints available for purchase at the gallery.
