February 2019 Featured Artist: The Artists of the Cheshire Cat
ArtWalk Opening: Friday, February 1st, 4:00-8:00pm
We'll have the work of Cheshire Cat's in-house artists on display for the month of February: Lucy Ferrada with her hand-painted wooden bowls and inspirational banners and Dawn McConnell with her hand-painted stoneware.
Lucy Ferrada is passionate about art, life and design. Inspired by color and texture, clothing design is my first love. I enjoy creating something special, and knowing the comfort
and joy that it brings to everyday life. When I'm not creating clothing, I enjoy other outlets for expressing creativity and often turn my eye and paintbrush to functional art for everyday life.
Dawn has been making things with clay for many years. I love the feel of clay in my hands and its ability to be molded into endless shapes. I especially enjoy the versatility of clay to lend itself to functional art both by design and through decoration. The items that we use in everyday life can be beautiful as well as functional. They should also bring us joy and make us smile. Living in a log cabin in the woods of central Vermont, I draw inspiration from the gardens and wildlife which surround us. Owls and sunflowers are a particular favorite motif!
