December Artist of the Month opening Reception
Join us on Thursday December 5th for an opening reception from 6pm to 8pm featuring our Artists of the Month, fabric artist, Iris Sonnenschein and jewelry artist, Barbara Trainer.
"I find inspiration in nature, music and works of art, and I love combining textures and colors to evoke a general sense of place, as opposed to one particular object. The idea of creating a piece of art that can be touched, and can reflect a mood or a moment, feeds my creative energies; working with clients to create art that speaks uniquely to them, feeds my spirit." — Iris Sonnenschein, fabric
"Barbara Trainer, a co-owner of Beadcraft Etc., is a jewelry designer, whose inspirations come from many sources--organic, natural or light catching materials, eclectic shapes, combinations and colors. Her jewelry designs are created with quirky & unusual components in sterling, copper, gold-filled & silver-plated metals, hand-blown glass, imported stones and beads. The elements are combined in many different ways so each piece is fresh, unique & striking. The styles run from vintage to retro, classic to contemporary. Educated at the Landscape Institute, her profession as a Certified Massachusetts Landscape Designer creating gardens, which vary in texture, light, color & shape, led her five years ago to exploring jewelry design. As a member of the Dedham Square Artists Guild and a participant in regional Massachusetts arts venues, she has become an active member of the artists communities around the Massachusetts area." — Barbara Trainer, jewelry
