Gingercake Mountain Art Show

I recently enjoyed taking part in a community art and craft show, just a small one day event for the folks who live at Gingercake Mountain in Jonas Ridge, NC.  Here are a few photos to show the range of arts represented:

He was tense as a coiled spring  but, we suspect, never sure whether he was the huntsman or the hunted.

Water sprite:

She was calm as a bubble bobbing  among the waves but, they say, she occasionally mourned the loss of her legs.

Now that I’ve produced several short-short stories, I think “Twitter” is next in my future.  Microfiction certainly has its attractions.

About Lillian-Trettin

I grew up in the Appalachian "Bible Belt" of East Tennessee in the southern United States, listening to banjo music and gospel lyrics as well as the Beatles. As a kid, I was curious about religious rituals like speaking in tongues and snake handling but resistant to the fundamentalist thinking they involved. Flannery O'Connor's tales of religious fanatics, con men, bigots, and the spiritually bereft or ambivalent resonate for me. Despite having traveled widely and lived in other places, I am (as so many Southerners claim to be) permanently "South haunted." I returned to making art full time in 2011, following a career as a teacher, researcher, and consultant and after raising two sons. I’m convinced the delay enriched rather than impeded my growth as an artist.

    Like the newest work with Swarthy Jean. Are you using birchwood ‘canvases’ for your box art? I’ve been seeing them and finding lots of uses for them. Like the idea they can be a base for paper collage.
