First Friday Art Walk – June 2017

Discover Art Downtown at NexLynx Gallery of Arts, Friday June 2nd from 5pm to 8pm, to view the silk paintings from members of the Sunflower Silkers group during our First Friday Art Walk.

The Sunflower Silkers, a local chapter of Silk Painters International (SPIN), are a unique group of artists who share their knowledge and passion for silk painting.

Silk painting is a diverse and challenging media that has an ancient history. Various resists are used to control the fabric dye or paint which are applied with a brush to white silk. After the painting is completed, the color is then heat set using steam or an iron. The work is then washed, ironed and framed as a two-dimensional piece of art.

The members exhibiting their artwork are Barb Ballentine, Lynne Bourne, Kelly Burke, Barry Busch, Elenor Chipman, Geri Cummings, Richard Eaken, Roxanne Ebberts, Candace Futch, Mary Hawks, Bonnie Keim, Ann Keller, Diane Lawrence, Pam Leinwetter, Autumn Prosser, Barb Quaney, Kim Schimmel, Sabra Shirrell, Donna Silsby, Jun Sun, Debbie Tice, Lois VanLiew, Denise Brice-Walker and Christin Wasson.

We hope to see you here!
