With the theme “Art for Body & Abode” this after-hours event features jeweler Barbara Judkins, Melbourne, IA, and photographer Michael Rickhard, Traer, IA. Both will be on hand to share their stories (and secrets) Thursday, October 19th from 4:30 – 6:30 pm.
If you missed Barbara Judkins at the 2017 Linn Creek Arts Festival, now is a great time to connect! She loves to discuss the semi-precious stones that she hand cuts, polishes, then wraps with wire. Wire weaving plays a strong roll in her jewelry, which includes pendants, bracelets and earrings.
Michael Rickard was a new participant (and favorite) in Marshalltown’s 2017 Art Walk. An accomplished photographer, he uses computer manipulation to create digital images that are often a far stretch from the original subject. Micheal says, “I want people to be able to relate to the images from an artistic and emotional perspective.”
Light refreshments and wine tasting round out this free event!
