September 08 Clothesline Show
Our Clothesline Art Show will host their next art exhibit on September 12, 13 and 14. The show will be at a new location, the home of Michael and Maria Cardillo located at 4401 St Elmo Ave.
This will be the fourth show for the group of women who are photographers, painters, printmakers, and collage artists. The fourteen women exhibiting in September include several new artists. Welcomed into this exhibit are Ellen Franklin, Valerie Gibson, Elizabeth Gray-Earl, Carrie Pendergrass, and Heidi Vasterling. These women will be showing paintings, photographs, and collage pieces contributing to the already wonderful quality of fine art that will be on display. Returning to exhibit her distinctively composed local industrial landscapes is photographer Maria Cardillo. Collage and painting artists Amber Cooley and Kristine Simpson each will display works created with collected papers and designed with distinction. Cat Collier continues to develop her jewel-like modern tree images that elegantly combine painting, collage and drawing. Katie Ward Knutson is focusing upon her Jefferson Heights neighborhood in watercolors paintings of local buildings as forms impacted by lighting conditions. Lauren Leutwiler’s current series of relief prints are each produced upon old book pages, meshing contemporary and historical printmaking. Sarah Nichols’ art involves her expert use of silkscreen technique in compositions based upon family, several in combination with tiny scale installations. Sarah’s perfectly crafted pieces engage in humor and exquisite use of color. Linda Thomas is emphasizing local wild birds in a series of drawings with watercolor, as always beautifully drawn with a sensitive eye and hand.
The Opening Reception is Friday September 12 from 6-9pm. Saturday September 13 hours are 11am-5pm. Sunday September 14 hours are 1-5pm. The artists will be available most of the weekend. Plenty of parking is available on side streets near the St Elmo and West 44th Street location.
