Sorry for the short notice, but in case you are in the Chicago area I will have an exhibit in downtown Chicago this month, with the opening on Friday evening. No, it’s not textiles, but it is beadwork, and I am thrilled to have been given this opportunity. I’ll be at the opening, so please stop in if you can. I’d love to see you! Here’s the release from the gallery:
an installation by
Larkin Jean Van Horn
Creating a thing of beauty out of the merely ordinary, nationally recognized fiber artist Larkin Van Horn applies a skin of woven beadwork and embellishments to the humble driftwood. Reminiscent to the reliquaries of old, these intimate artworks are richly decorated on the outside, plain and ordinary on the inside.
The opening reception is a part of the monthly “Second Fridays at the Fine Arts Building” when the building’s galleries will be open, along with many studios of artists, musicians, singers, yoga instructors, massage therapists & more! So come for our reception and stay for the rest!
