TEXT of INVITATION (feel free to use this text to share this event information)

Brigid Ashwood
Winged Things & Improbable Machines
an exhibit
Gifts Inn BoonsBoro Maryland
www.giftsinnboonsboro.com

Working with classic mediums such as silverpoint, oil paint, wood panel and antique book paper, artist Brigid Ashwood has created a collection that resembles a surreal reliquary of artifacts, all gleaned from the deepest recesses of the imagination. The exhibit reads much like the lost sketchbooks of a tortured dollmaker;  many finely rendered images reveal delicately crafted joints, creaking against porcelain and weathered wood. This blend of antique and traditional materials, combined with references to pop culture's current obsession with all things Steampunk, make this exhibit compelling to behold.  We cordially invite you to experience it for yourself.

Gallery Exhibit Information

I'm happy to share with you a small press release for my exhibit in November:

Winged Things & Improbable Machines - an exhibit by artist Brigid Ashwood.

Working with classic mediums such as Silverpoint, Egg Tempera and Antique Book Paper artist Brigid Ashwood has created a collection that reads like a surreal reliquary of an imagined future-past. The works offer a glimpse into the lost sketchbooks of what could be Da Vinci's Steampunk Cousin - or maybe a mad dollmaker - or tortured taxidermist. The blend of ancient and traditional materials with references to pop cultures current obsessions with all things Steampunk, Da Vinci Code-esque and Japansese Ball Jointed Dolls make this exhibit compelling viewing. Don't miss it.

November 21st 2009 - Jan 2nd 2010

And some additional information that you might find interesting. Gifts Inn Boonsboro is a gallery - it gets it's name in part from the fact that it is also the gift shop for a Bed and Breakfast called Inn Boonsboro.

Inn Boonsboro is a fabulous literary themed Bed and Breakfast that is owned by world famous bestselling author Nora Roberts. Nora lives is Boonsboro ( I happen to be a Nora Roberts fan! And interestingly enough Boonsboro is only 8 minutes from where I live)

Nora also owns a book store in Boonsboro called Turn the Page Books. Whenever she releases a new title they have a signing at her store and hundreds of people show up. Its quite something.

During the run of my exhibit we will of course have an opening reception but we're also planning an additional reception for the people who attend the book signing in December.

Hope to see you at the opening!
