Angie Follensbee-Hall is a Mixed Media and Handmade Paper artist. She was born in Sicily but grew up in the woods of New Hampshire and Vermont.
Angie transforms mixed media sources: rope, paper, paint, plant fibers and botanicals. Her inspiration comes from the world of nature ~ the wisp of grass swaying in a Winter wind or the small sprout searching for the sun’s nourishment in Spring. The world of spirit, myth, and religion are all sources of artistic inspiration. In her work, she seeks to describe the relationship between humans, the earth, and the heavens. In each creation, she invokes a meditative quality, reflecting upon the world of myth and nature, suggesting a connection between all beings at their source.
Mary Jo Krolewski is primarily a self-taught artist whose sculpture-making skills developed from her interests in sewing and crafting. Using colorful playful fabrics, she creates her soft, mostly food-inspired sculpture. She has developed a portfolio of work that pays homage to Claus Oldenburg, Andy Warhol, Marcel Duchamp, and Judy Rosenberg.
Mary Jo lives, works, and creates in Montpelier ~ her home since 2005. Mary Jo’s sculptures are made from sewed fabrics with foam fillings. Some sculptures incorporate clay and crocheted/knitted forms.
