Memory Keeper …. Guest Blogger – Dianne Corso

   Calypso Exhibition Level 3 Advanced Studies in Experimental Stitch

One of the fascinating aspects of the courses I have taken with Gail is that each one has helped me to sharpen my understanding of what materials, processes and subject matter are of most interest to me in art making. Color, line, texture, the inherent tactile quality of fiber, the satisfaction of working with simple tools and processes, the appeal of using a quantity of similar yet discreet elements to create a piece, these became my primary interests across this course. I am very much looking forward to the next level in order to focus more effort in these areas.    all artwork © Dianne Corso

A Note from Gail –   This is the last Guest Blogger in the Calypso Exhibition Series.  Just in the nick of time too.  Yesterday a new group of graduate exhibitors arrived  and we are putting up a new exhibition for this weekend. Dianne had interest in writing systems and researched a few.  The name of her large hanging is titled Memory Keepers –  Bedouin Red. It is made with Inkle Bands, Kumihimo Braids, knotted and beaded cords and ply split cords.

    I truly enjoyed seeing your creations at the exhibition. Innovative and inspirational! Both your wall hanging and “cheesecloth vessels” caught my eye. Thank you for exhibiting your work!
