Ethereal Lines Art Exhibit at The Palette & The Page
The September 3, 2021 First Friday Elkton Art Loop Event at The Palette & The Page, features an opening reception, books signings and music by Tom Christiansen from 5pm-8pm.
The First Friday Event, September 3, 2021 at The Palette & The Page Gallery will present weavings, both two-dimensional and wearables by Susan Balascio in the Special Exhibit Gallery Show “Ethereal Lines.” The reception is from 5pm-8pm and will have live music by Tom Christiansen during the Opening. We also welcome authors Timothy Baldwin and Tom Glenn to sign their books. The show will be in the Special Exhibit Gallery through Friday, September 24th.
From an early age, textiles have always been an important part of Susan Balascio’s life through sewing, knitting, crochet and embroidery. Learning to weave in 2013 opened up a whole new world for her and added another dimension to her textile passion. From gossamer-like fine threads to super chunky slubby yarn, nothing is off limits in her exploration! The infinite combinations of threading, treadling, color and texture challenge Susan in ways she never thought possible. Weaving provides a unique venue to explore not only traditional craft, but to push the boundaries of craft into art. Trained as a painter, Susan has also explored a wide variety of media. In addition to her current focus on weaving and fiber arts, she has also worked in jewelry design, colored pencil and pastel drawing, painting, stained glass, collage and ceramics.
Author Timothy Baldwin grew up in Syracuse, New York. He currently resides in Maryland where he teaches English, Creative Writing, Film, and Theatre on the middle school level. At the insistence of his own students, he began writing seriously in 2014. He credits his love for story to his mother, who spent countless hours reading to him and his siblings when they were growing up. His books include three in the Kahale and Claude Mystery series written with young adults in mind.
Tom Glenn has worked as an intelligence operative, a musician, a linguist (seven languages), a cryptologist, a government executive, a caregiver for the dying, a leadership coach, and, always, a writer. Many of his prize-winning short stories (seventeen in print) came from the better part of thirteen years he shuttled between the U.S. and Vietnam as an undercover NSA operative supporting army and Marine units in combat before escaping under fire when Saigon fell. His latest books include Secretocracy, and his short-story collection, Coming to Terms.
Performing music with us again during the First Friday Art Loop will be pianist Tom Christiansen.
