Afterwards, we went next door to see the work of Freda Fairchild. Multi-talented, she is a printmaker and fiber artist who makes gorgeous jewelry and works in mixed media. I am lucky enough to own one of her works on paper.
Next stop, Gallery 1925 to the opening and artist's talk by Ursula Schneider, printmaker and painter who was an absolute delight to listen to, as she talked about her work and her process. She does woodcuts (Hanga) and her paintings are amazing.
Finally, Lily Liu had a trunk show at Bob and Helene's Gallery, Jefferson Street Studios. She repurposes clothing and transforms them into beautiful garments with shibori. It was a real fashion show and lots of Paducah's artists and patrons showed up to hang out, try on clothes, and buy. What fun!
