Donna's words: "I am interested in the effects of the passage of time on memory, identity and nature. Our memories are based on our histories, and experiences and can dwell in either light or shadow. Some memories are strong and vibrant and sometimes they are buried in our subconscious, faint and blurred. Our memories may be filled with gaps, like our childhood memories. Memories may be faded or just traces or vestiges of a remembered moment in our past. Because our memories are so intertwined with language I like to explore the importance of words, phrases, sentences… snatches of a memory lingering in and out of consciousness. I believe that everyone has a story to tell. Stories become our compass by which we navigate through our memories and discover our core being. We use our stories to build our sanctuaries. With the passage of time there is a transience depicted with recollections, gaps in memory or faded memory, traces and layers. My work is a reflection of this transient cycle of life and embedded with Zen tenets. My process in my painting expresses this transience of life by incorporating traces and layers of paint. Paint is layered, lifted, scratched and rubbed, leaving a residue of marks much like the lost and found aspects of memory. These layers come together to tell a story."

LYNN HANSON GALLERY 312 S WASHINGTON ST SEATTLE, WA 98104 This workshop was held last July in LYNN HANSON GALLERY and it was a real hit! So much fun!!
There is an intrinsic magic associated with the indigo vat and the unknown patterns and shades of blue that we will be focusing on over the course of this 3- day intensive. One needs only to be a willing, hands-on participant to be able to walk away with a notebook full of techniques and a head full of possibilities! Day One- We cover the basics of folding & clamping, bound resist, setting up the indigo vat, and some stitch techniques. Day Two- We review, and move onto bound resists with objects, pole wrapping (arashi shibori), and bundling. Day Three- As a group we discuss project successes and formulate the rest of our days focus. www.lynnhansongallery.com email@example.com 206-960-2118
