Guest Artist -Lesley Venable

I'm excited to announce my next visiting artist, Lesley Venable!

By Lesley Venable

Come and set your imaginations free as we create our own, one of a kind, architectural assemblage angel. We will dress them in wings made of antique ceiling tin, vintage hardware, dimensional findings, collage and more. The addition of gesso stamping, inking and stenciling will help to add depth and dimension to our finished pieces. The base/form of our angels is based on one my Daddy created to make folk art pieces. As a way to honor him after his passing I chose to use his design for the angels.

when: Sunday, July 18th
time: 12:00-5:00
where: 1606 oxford lane
wall, nj 07719
