Next Show - Cheri Glaser - Floorcloths

CHERI GLASER (formerly a professional potter) has begun experimenting with the process of painted canvas floorcloths. Floorcloths were used during this country's early years as an inexpensive yet practical floor covering. The height of their popularity was in the 1700's tapering off in the middle 1800's. Today, artists' are reinventing the floorcloths as an alternative to area rugs, adding individual design and modern production techniques. 

Glaser will have her recent floorcloths on display at the Luna Moth Gallery from April 29 - June 29th. Opening reception is Friday, May 1, from 5:30 - 7:00.

Doilies by Julie Flaherty

Women teaching each other various arts has happened since people were people (at least if you don't count people being people until they could do such things). Crocheted doilies are part of that tradition. Julie has brought us some nice examples of these.

The show will be up through April 28th.

"Paper Paintings" by Emily Barthel

It's a New Year and the Luna Moth Gallery has a new show up. It is "Paper Paintings" by Emily Barthel.

Emily's art is created from various discards that she finds. She writes,

"For the viewer, I desire to create a moment of relief from the everyday chaos in today’s energetic culture and to induce consideration of the possibilities of reusing.

As long as society has a throw away mentality, my non-standard supplies will never run out.

The exhibit will be up through February 28th. There will be a reception January 18th from 1-3.

Bloomington is a Certified Wildlife Habitat Community

Lucille Bertuccio and a group of Habitat Stewards have been working to make this happen for years. It means that a certain percentage of households, schools and businesses in the Bloomington community have created wildlife habitats and had their properties certified by the National Wildlife Federation.

On October 4th at the Showers Common and the Farmer's Market - there will be a ceremony with the Mayor.


It's great to know that Bloomington as a community is welcoming to wildlife.

The Luna Moth Gallery is having a show of photographs from various habitats in the area.

These are just a few of the photos that are on exhibit at the gallery through December 31st (some of the exhibits will be at the Showers Common for the celebration on October 4th).
