A Collection of Embroidered Textiles with Ann Darling

July 14, 2015

For our second Visit an Artist for Lunch event, we  travel to the Tacoma, Wa. area,  to see Ann Darling in her Browns Point home studio.  Ann is a creator of wonderful clothing, accessories and jewelry as well as a collector of textiles and embroidery from her travels. Included in her collection is work from Ethnic minority tribes (Miao and Dong villages) in SW China. She has generously invited us to view her textile collection as well as her own creations, and to join her for lunch at her home.

Date: Thursday, November 5, 2015
Time: 11:30 at her home; exact time to meet TBD
Transportation: car pools, which I will arrange once I know who is coming and where they are coming from

RSVP  Gwen Lowery, Conact one of these links for cost and registration:  Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts or  gwen@brokenpoint.net . There are a limited number of spaces so RSVP today to make sure you can join us. All goes for the support of the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts*

As you can see from these photos, seeing Ann’s textile collection will be an incredible treat. Add to that getting to see and purchase her clothing, accessories and jewelry, it is a day not to be missed! We do have a limited number of spots so make your reservation today!   Gwen Lowery

From Ann:

After working in the arena of health care for 35 years – as a Registered Nurse, Licensed Midwife and health Educator –  it is a huge joy to walk into my studio and “play with fabric” each day.   I am grateful to have the opportunity to create clothing and accessories which people want to wear! I am an award winning, but not famous (outside of my own clients, family and friends!!) custom clothier and accessories maker (designer and maker) living in Tacoma, Washington.  

My work is informed by my passion for textiles, my appreciation for the simple, elegant styles of Asian clothing, and my good fortune in being able to travel.  Nothing esoteric about art and form … just the sheer pleasure of playing with fabric, piecing things from found objects or making jewelry, and seeing my ideas, and other people’s desires, become reality.
