'Marks + Meditations' slated at Ripple River
AITKIN - Work by batik artist Diane Rutherford, Grand Rapids, and wood artist Bob Carls, Bay Lake, will be featured in "Marks + Meditations" through Nov. 2 at the Ripple River Gallery near Aitkin.
A reception will be from 2-4 p.m. Saturday as part of the gallery's annual open house.
Rutherford has been working in batik for more than 30 years. To create her work, she layers beeswax onto fabric and applies dye. Penetration of the cotton by the wax and dye allows for images and color to be layered into the fiber.
Carls, co-owner of the Ripple River Gallery, creates turned wood vessels, which can be found in public and private collections worldwide.
