Arts around the village

We love to see the arts being embraced all around Innisfree whether it’s doing crafts on a rainy day or gathering a group to tie-dye in the summertime. This past week, we said goodbye to a long-time community member as he moves on to new things. Cabell was a big part of the community for 14 years, and we hope to still see him around! Thanks for all you did for the gardens and the community, Cabell!

Here are some photographs of card-making from last week’s Community Gathering. We used potato stamping and drawing to create colorful cards to show Cabell our appreciation.

The medical office recently received a face-lift when we put some pieces from the art class up on its walls! They really brighten a room, and it’s so nice to see the art studio represented around the village. I hope it brings pride and happiness to Innisfree artists!

Lastly, some of the Innisfree weavers have been working in the weavery for over 20 years but that doesn’t mean they don’t still take pride in their work! Here’s Bee modeling a sherpa coat fresh off the loom. She does such beautiful work!

“Colorshow” at Tabor Presbyterian

We did it! The Innisfree Art Studio had their very first solo art show. Up in the spacious, bright space that is the Tabor Presbyterian Church in Crozet until Thanksgiving, visitors can take a peek into the colorful world of the Innisfree Artists. There’s something really magical about work from the studio being framed and hung in a gorgeous space, and admired by friends and family members.

We often get the opportunity to congratulate each other for a job well done, but rarely in the context of such a celebratory environment. We are so thankful to Crozet Cares and Julie for supporting us, helping to hang the pieces, and providing refreshments for the evening! Below is the description of why we feel this art is so special and some photographs from the night. We are looking forward to the Very Special Arts show that goes up in March at Carver Recreation center in Charlottesville, so fear not this is not your last opportunity to appreciate the raw talent of the Innisfree Artists!
