action shots - Progress Report

Progress Report in progress.

See more photos from the show on hol sum's flickr set for Progress Report.

Thanks to Nick Mancusi and Christian Butler, the above time-lapse photo stream is a nice Quicktime movie for your viewing pleasure! I think this work in action lends understanding for the work as a potentially growing form constantly fed by the creative endeavors of students and faculty in Taliesin's Hillside Studio. This project was a great success! I am very grateful to everyone at Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture for participation, support, and enthusiasm. I'm especially thankful for the work and support of Saskia Jorda, friend and artist, who organizes TARP, the Taliesin Artist in Residence Program. Thank you again to Nick Mancusi for his photography and to Eric Baillies for his photography. This was a well documented show.

Progress Reported.

Ian and Noah check out the show with Dad, Floyd Hamlin.

art journal

Today starts class at the Monroe Street Fine Arts Center: Artist's Journal.
It's not a diary, it's not a scrapbook (God help us), it's not a photo album, but...
It's real deal collection of and practice in the art of design and use of our daily ideas and visual experiences.
Work it! Some of today's input for my journal:

Welcome to fun-for-work, work-for-fun: Alex (12), Isabella (11), Bianca (10, and Sarah (14).

HOL SUM : Becky Peebles : on site and installing the Progress Report here at Hillside Studio, Taliesin. I hope those of you who can come will come to the reception this evening at 7p. Some photos of the work in it's current state:

It's been a fun experience working with the students and faculty here and there is positive reception of the wall's new texture reflecting everyone in the studio. I've been taking photos every 30 seconds while working and will have a photo stream of the work in progress. This way, the residue of creative process is visible in it's growth over a few days. I'll probably post that here on the blog tomorrow or Sunday. Stay tuned...

busy bumblebee

I'm not calling this the bumblebee dress, but those words describe the busy-ness that's going on.... and this yellow dress, more aptly named for me, the goldfinch dress is included:
I had a strong urge to make a sweet little dress with lots of expensive frabric for my upcoming show reception and the following evening's formal at Taliesin. A sewing blitz and some luck, not a bad afternoon and evening spent at home.
See you at the reception at Taliesin July 18th - 7-9pm. see
