There were some challenges this summer, but working on being at Paint It Orange was a wonderful anchor; a creative place to stay in for awhile throughout the difficulties.
Jess created a unique space, offering classes, events and open-studio space. She also supports local, and like me, 'kinda local', artists with shows at her space.
Our opening is Thursday, October 5, 2023, 5-7pm, 137 Caroline Street in downtown Orange. If you're in the area, please join us. The art will be up through the end of November.
As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I once lived in Orange county and it has been an interesting journey as I searched for images of Orange that caught my 'collage eye'. I even came across a house I had once lived in; with many changes, not unexpectedly.
Jess herself has been a collage muse of mine and I included an array of collages of her in the show; along with other collages that went along for the ride to Orange, like Jackpot Motel
