Taking Flight

Happy Friday, my friends!

I'll be spending nearly every waking moment of my weekend finishing up preparations for my AG Gallery show, which opens this Monday. This little exhibition will include lots of cut paper and a few paintings inspired by my St. Joe camping trip.

This is the little blurb about the show:

Claire Mojher is a designer/illustrator in the Design Studio who often has dreams of flying.

Paying tribute to her fascination with things that float, glide or defy gravity, and her occasional desire to simply escape, Claire’s one-woman show—Flight—debuts today in the Gallery.

The artwork on display will be cut paper and paintings. The birds are cut and layered paper in framed glass. The
plein air landscapes are either watercolor or acrylic. They were inspired by a recent camping trip to Port St. Joe, Florida, where Claire spent six glorious days among sand dunes and cypress. Taking flight into the wild is something she would do every day, if she could.

Spent the last several days camping with my husband and parents in Port St. Joe, Florida. It was wonderful to flee the grayness and damp chill of Cleveland and spend 7 days drenched in sunshine, coastal breezes and drifting woodsmoke. I think I could go camping for a month and not get sick of it.

Cooking corn or fresh waffles over the fire, warming tea and made-from-scratch chili on the camp stove, falling asleep to the sound of wind through the pines and palms with the full moon glowing in the East, and opening your eyes to clear sunshine, surrounded by soft morning birdsong and the promise of a day spent lounging on the beach or kayaking in the bay... That's my heaven.

Paper Wings

Three pieces of mine in the "Greetings from Brooklyn" show in the Pennello Gallery.

They're about 5" x 7" and made from cut and layered paper mounted on tiny wooden blocks and foam sponges. These are my first attempt at semi-detailed cut paper work, and I'm pretty thrilled with how they turned out.
The exhibition runs through April 30th!

Saturday Eye Candy

What's better than spending Saturday night out on the town in Little Italy, enjoying a glass of wine, listening to live jazz and enjoying some handsome artwork?
