I have been a fan of Chris Roberts-Antieau’s fabric art work since the first time I saw it. It always makes me happy: her fabric paintings are about the kinds of things we all think about. Table manners, for instance:
and things that make us happy:
or bad habits:
So when I discovered Chris had opened a new gallery in New Orleans, on Royal Street, I was delighted: I got to see her fabric art work in person, up close, in all its marvelous detail. And then I got to call her up and ask her questions. Yay!
In this podcast, Chris talks about walking out of her very first (and, hence, only) art class and about the pop-up gallery opening she had at the first of this month. The show is up through the end of November, so if you’re near Ann Arbor, be sure to go visit. Click below to listen to the podcast, and go to the website to see more of Chris’ work.
Thanks to Chris and Heidi for making this podcast possible in the midst of a really busy week preparing for the opening–I can’t even imagine the amount of work involved.
