Yesterday, Elsewhere hosted its January opening showcasing the work of our fellow resident Nazish Chunara. During her one-month stay she completed a large-scale paper installation and a series of printed textiles. Nazish delved head-first into her first-ever installation and took her geometric paintings to the next level. (Claps all around!)
The show also highlighted the past work and in-progress experimentations by gouache and watercolor extraordinaire, Aralia Rose.
Amber and I showed our in-progress collaborative installation in the upstairs studio as well as a few samples of our solo work
It was a lovely night of white wine spritzers, home-made samosas (Thanks, Nazish!), interactive fiber art, lushly illustrative gouache experimentations, suggestive clay sculptures, and good company. Thanks to all who came out to support the Elsewhere residents and celebrate Nazish's time here! Come back this February 26th to see our finished Paonia Cocoons installation and various solo projects. Also, it's not too late to have your home or business represented in the Paonia installation. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on how you can get involved.
