I had a lovely morning wandering around downtown yesterday, despite the excessively humid weather. At one point I walked past a flower shop and the scent of tropical flowers combined with the weather made me feel for a moment as if I was in Hawaii, which was quite lovely.
I did some coveting art supply pricing at Art Media and Utrecht before heading to see the Ai Wei Wei exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. I got to the museum before it opened and just happened upon some gorgeous artwork at the Augen Gallery next door. Dharma Strasser Maccoll’s work drew me right in! The photos don’t do them justice. She has stitched gorgeous paper together and embellished them with gouache, shimmery thread, and tiny pieces of porcelain to create art that is intricate and delicate and beautiful. I have a thing for art that includes sewing and paper and I felt so lucky to stumble across the show, which comes down in three days.
