Fabric Artist Loretta Etchison & Painter Melissa Isaacson @ PPP in Feb ’24!
Fabric artist Loretta Etchison has been creating various forms of art since her teenage years, exhibiting at Art on the Green when in high school. She started Retro Blooms Card Company about twenty years ago, designing the originals from flowers pressed from her garden, then making cards from prints. Three years ago Loretta started creating wool felted purses and decorating them with needle felting.
Painter Melissa Isaacson will start sketching on-site with whatever materials she has on hand. While she sketches, Melissa is focused more on what is in front of her than on how the sketch turns out. Then back in her studio the goal is to tell the story of the essence of the place, combining the technical visual details with the events she saw happening, and the people passing through them.
Stop by Pottery Place Plus in the Historic Liberty Building on First Friday Feb 2nd to meet the artists and see their work!
