I am pleased to announce that “Tulip Slipper” is one of two works I will have in this exhibit. Twenty-four women artists, representing a variety of mediums, will be participating in the show being held at The Orphanage Gallery in Dayton, Ohio.
“Tulip Slipper” was created from a single tulip flower image I photographed, and then duplicated and experimented with in Photoshop until the final design was formed. The ribbon elements were made from a leaf image I had taken at an earlier time. Additional images were used to create the background and overlay textures. The design reminded me of my childhood ballet dancer days, which led me to the title for the piece. It is printed with archival ink on 100% cotton rag fine art paper, which gives the tones a rich quality and enhances the textures in the image.
An opening reception is scheduled as a First Friday event on September 6th from 5:00-9:00 PM. Additional viewings will be on Saturday, September 7th from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM and the third Sunday event, September 15th from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. The Orphanage Gallery is located in the Front Street campus of the Dayton Arts District.
