New Art Work by Barb Heine

We would like to take this moment to highlight the new art work of one of our members. Barb Heine is a potter and a painter of watercolors.  She has a new project she has been working on for the up coming Open House.  Barb is painting original watercolors and placing them inside vintage jewelry, trinket and music boxes.  She finds these boxes at local antique shops and estate sales, she refurbishes them and creates a new work of art.

 This one is titled "Red Hot Chili Peppers"
"Crocus First Light"

The inside contains a velvet lined space for jewelry or trinkets and some have mirrors.
"Ski Slope in the Pines."
Some of the them contain Music Boxes.

Barb states, " I love painting watercolors and I love vintage things.  I am a great collector of antiques and when I see these boxes they speak to me!  Each one deserves a special little painting all its' own, no two boxes are alike.  I hope our patrons come to our Grand Opening and appreciate all the hard work we've done in our new space."

                                                              Artist: Barb Heine

The Grand Opening/Open House that Barb mentioned is On April 29-30th.  Friday night from 5-8 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 3 pm, the public is welcome.  Location: 1957 Ridge Road, Homewood IL
