We’re only a week away from the opening reception for “Pop Down to the Port”, a very special pop up gallery show at CRAFTED on April 18th. The excitement is building here at CRAFTED as the preparations are being made and the artwork is getting moved in. Now would be a great time to get a little more acquainted with the six talented artists being featured in the show.
CRAFTED is so proud of our very own Queen of Vintage, Kelly Reid. Kelly is a master of vintage furnishings and textiles. She’s been designing and selling retro pieces and inspired textiles from her shop, The Vintage Stop, for over 20 years.
Jennifer Blue has been working in the fashion industry for over 15 years. Her provocative collages blend images to create a completely new narrative.
Dawn Marie Forsyth
Dawn Marie Forsyth is a fine artist and long time arts educator. Dawn’s work focuses on paying attention to the balance between limitations and being limitless through the play of constructed proportion, shape, and texture.
Six years ago Patsy Johnson made her first quilt and fell in love. Soon after she left her career in banking and insurance to pursue her passion full-time and never looked back. Patsy loves the modern quilting movement and her dynamic quilts show the influence.
Graham Moore has come a long way from his first design gig in Covent Garden. He arrived in Los Angeles in 1991 and quickly became part of the design education community, teaching at the Art Institute, Woodbury University, FIDM and UCLA Extension. His retro inspired designs and textiles will definitely transport you back in time and set the mood for the show. Graham also designed the logo for the show.
