Beth designed a postcard for our first collection. The mouse print on the left is my first true repeat pattern. The one on the right is one of Beth's lovely abstract floral motifs. Both of the originals were painted in gouache on illustration board and scanned. In our show you'll see an installation that includes an 8'x8' section of hand-painted wallpaper, a collection of pillows made from our fabrics, an upholstered chair, embroidered vintage textiles and a limited edition Turkey Red City Mouse Pin (The City Mouse Pin will also be for sale in my Etsy shop by Sunday night!).

REDefined: Annual Members Show
Annual Members Exhibition and Fundraiser for Midwives for Haiti

Opening Reception Friday, June 11th, 6-10 PM

REDefined is a show about “red”. Some of us appreciate the beauty and visual impact of the hue, the lightfastness of the pigment, the passion it conjurs up, its political implications or the moods or emotions it has come to represent. However the word is interpreted, this is one show that will truly define who the Midwives are. We all rigorously explored the depths of our artistic limits to present our works in the forms of painting, installation, textile design, sumi e brush painting, embroidery and photography.
