Release: October 21,2018 For Immediate Release
A new exhibition by Mamapajama Studio opens October 26 at the Wine Down on Main, Brevard,NC. The Road to Indigo features multi media and textile pieces and will be on display until the end of November.
In The Road to Indigo, Andi Williams, Heather Kilsdonk and Celia Landreth explore the use of Indigo dye in multi media paintings and textiles, including silk and canvas.
The trio have arranged their indigo themed pieces on the warm and inviting original brick interior of WineDown on Main, Brevard, NC. They have transferred to canvas, paper and fabric ideas, sensations and emotions with indigo as the common theme.
Williams is an artist based in Brevard. She has contributed to exhibitions at TC Arts in Brevard and has pieces in private collections in Memphis, Nashville and locally in Brevard and Asheville. Her work has also been published in the literary anthology The Charles Carter.
Williams is well known for her Tree of Life series and for painting vivid abstracts with bright colors and bold strokes.
When asked about the art exhibition, Williams said that the group was inspired by their exploration of the ancient medium of Indigo dye. While learning to make the dye vat and create the complex textile shibori folds they became fascinated by the color variations and the use of dye on other substrates such as paper and canvas.Kilsdonk states, “Inherently, I am a maker. A friend once used that as a way to describe why she makes art and it’s stuck with me because it’s exactly why I do! I make art because I love the process of making it, whatever it is. My art isn’t always about the finished product or the idea behind it, it’s about exploring and being put in situations where I have to in some way push myself & the material to figure out what to make with it. It’s a flowing, organic process and I enjoy the little challenges presented with every new artistic endeavor.”
Mamapajama Studio is a collaborative group of artists working to support young creative Celia Landreth. Celia has various special needs requiring support, but her energy, humor and love of color and exploration are the life force for the studio. Their work is often on display at TC Arts in Brevard and is always found at Jordon Street Arts Gallery.
