Glass Gathering April Monthly Meeting:
Show and Tell
Program: Painting on Silk by Susan Moody. Susan is an artist based in Texas City who paints with dyes on silk. She will speak about her work and experience.
"Susan Douglass Moody was inspired to pursue art by watching her great-grandmother paint. Susan studied fine arts at Metro State College and the Art Institute of Denver. She now works predominantly in silk and dyes to make nature-inspired images, although she is skilled in several media, including watercolor, oils and photography. She does not use resist with her dyes, but prefers to allow them to flow at will to create unknown and uncontrollable effects. She says, 'It is like the dye has a life of its own.'"
