Jeanine Malaney to teach fabric art painting
Local artist Jeanine Malaney will present a program and workshop at the regular meeting of Pagosa Springs Piecemakers Guild Saturday, April 8,2006 at the Community United Methodist Church on Lewis Street.
At 11 a.m. Artist Malaney will present a program , "Fabric Art Paintings." She will bring several finished paintings for display and will discuss the step-by-step techniques used to produce a picture with fabric that has an enhanced, realistic, three-dimensional effect. Her inspirations come from the beauty of the western landscape and wildlife. She composes a fabric collage then adds detail features and shading with fabric paint. The artist then quilts the entire image with smoke monofilament thread, thereby increasing texture and highlighting features.
Fabric Art Artist Jeanine Malaney's work appears in the Pagosa Springs Arts Council 2006 Calendar. There will be handouts and discussion of the process and working with monofilament threads.
After a brief lunch break the group will reconvene at 1 p.m. and Jeanine will present a workshop and an interactive demonstration. She will delve further into her work, discussing and demonstrating design, composition and her quilting and binding techniques. Those in attendance will have the opportunity to help Malaney select fabrics and create a demonstration painting in class.
