Marlene’s contribution to this show was her most recent Shambolic garments, hats and scarves. These are marked by easy fluidity and irregular hemlines in three colorways: “All That Jazz” (black/white);”Peachy Keen I and II” (peach); and “Wilds” (earth tones).
Barbara brought along a whole ark of animals–though singles only, no pairs. Her imaginative felt hats, faces and sculptures included a swan, giraffe, frog, gorilla, snake, penguin, octopus and fish, as well as the felt sculptured head of her father–a remarkable likeness. Barbara gave permission to use pictures of two of her creations that have been previously published in international felting magazines.
The photos don’t do the originals justice, of course. So visit the French Art Colony to see these beautiful, whimsical felt creations!
