Something beautiful is happening in Verona, Wisconsin. A group of mature women artists are steeping themselves in new art techniques, exploring new methods of creating, finding fresh artistic voices. They are led by dear friend, Bea Neal at Dog-in-the-Hole Studios. An enchanted place that my own artistic muse adores. A place where I have created beautiful work I hadn’t envisioned.
The image I share today is one of Bea’s creations. A beautiful sculpted bowl, it carries on my Fashion Week peacock theme. All the glorious greens and blues in a handmade bowl. Bea and her fellow artists have been working for a year to complete an art show that has become and annual group event. I’ve included her posting about the sculpted bowls and the silent auction event they will be part of to raise money for the Dane County Food Bank. ( See the other show bowls.)

They are much more than beautiful pieces of art. They are beautiful examples of how beauty can help us see differently, appreciate that which we have not seen, and use art as a way to help and heal.
