Eleven members of the North Peninsula chapter of the Surface Design Association-WA will display their art during Gallery Walk at Pippa’s Real Tea, 636 Water St, Port Townsend Aug. 2 through Sept. 30, 5:30 to 8 pm
“This collection bumps up against the range of boundaries considered to be surface design,” explains Jeannie McMacken, North Peninsula chapter coordinator. “Our members have used silk, cotton, plastic, wool, paper and other materials combined with wax, beads, photos, metal and trash to create beautiful, unusual and provocative art that tell stories. Every piece truly is different from the next and reflects each artist’s genre.”
Members displaying work are: Pamela Hastings, Port Angeles; Susan Ramsey, Silverdale; Pat Herkal. Port Townsend; Barbara Houshmand, Port Angeles; Anne Jarnagin, Port Angeles; Kindy Kemp, Port Townsend; Jeannie McMacken, Port Townsend; Susanne Scott, Sequim; Nora Shapiro, Port Townsend; Joyce Wilkerson, Port Townsend; and Diane Williams, Port Angeles.
Pat Herkal describes surface design as “the creative exploration of fiber, fabric and other materials. It encompasses coloring, patterning, manipulating and structuring using such processes as dyeing, painting, printing, digital imaging, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, felting, wirework and papermaking.”
