GoggleWorks Show


Wave, 6 x 6 x 7 inches, silk, wool, dye and nylon thread

I can’t believe the opening of my show is just around the corner. GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is an old goggle factory, it has nothing to do with the search engine, by the way. Their mission statement is to nurture the arts, foster creativity, promote education and enrich the community. I’m so grateful to have their amazing space to hang my work in. I’m still working on new pieces and tying up a million loose ends. So much to do so little time. Here’s the details:

Oceans, Isles and Shoals: Linda Celestian

March 9- April 14, 2013

Opening Reception, First Friday, March 8, 2013 from 5:30-7:30PM

Linda is the winner of GoggleWorks 2012 Juried Vanity Fare. Working with paint in its fluid form and natural dying techniques, her work emulates the qualities of water. Natural occurring patterns also reference the body, illustrating the connection between the human circulatory system and the earth´s surface. Inspired by aerial photography and observations of local waterways, Celestian´s imagery portrays earth´s yin and yang qualities. “I´m interested in depicting nature´s energy as a metaphor for human states of being,” she shares.

      Thanks for the kind comments, it means a lot to me. Yes I’ve been working very hard and enjoyed having the GoggleWorks space to show in. I hope to be showing in Philly soon, I have a few places I’m planning on applying to. Hope all is well with you.
