January Art After Hours

"Imagining The Landscape"  

Artist Statement: This series of watercolors draws on the everyday landscape around us.  I find the land full of patterns, light, colors and textures and have used these to create this series.  While creating these images, stories from old, new, real and imagined memories were running through my mind.  I have left them as just the landscape for you to add your own story and memories as you view the images.

 

I studied studio art at SUNY Potsdam then settled in Massachusetts to raise our family.  During that time I kept working in various art fields and started Shady Oak Studio featuring my handmade pottery.  We then moved in 2008 to Wake Forest where I have continued making pots and joined The Cotton Company.  I have now expanded my body of work to include paintings.  This current series is worked with watercolor, gouache and pen and ink on paper.

 

Sharon's January exhibit will hang in The Cotton Company Gallery from

January 5th - February 8th.

 

The Cotton Company is a boutique marketplace shopping destination and art gallery in the heart of downtown Wake Forest, North Carolina. With over sixty individual businesses and artists, we strive to support small businesses and drive the entrepreneurial spirit of the vendors who reside inside.

Custom Bows by Welcome Home Wreaths & Gifts Print E-mail

How Bows and Wreaths Brought Healing

Lynda Naylor, owner of the booth Welcome Home Wreaths & Gifts at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest, NC, will be making custom bows for customers during this holiday shopping season. Lynda’s wreaths and bows are state of the art, high quality creations, and so is the story of how she got into the bow and wreath making business.
 
Lynda once had a relative ask her if she wanted to learn how to make bows for home décor and wreaths, but Lynda did not really think too much about this invitation until her world changed. At the time, Lynda’s husband’s health was quickly declining and after he passed away, again the same relative called and asked her once more if she would like to learn the art of bow making. Lynda’s family gathered together in this time of grief and decided that it was time to learn how to make bows. Making bows was not only something Lynda began to enjoy, but it also was a way for her to grieve the loss of her husband in a healthy way. As she continued to make bows, people started to compliment her on her work. From there, she began selling bows as a business and also expanded into wreath making.
 
Lynda has been making her bows for four years now, and this year is the first time she will be making bows at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest, North Carolina. She has been a part of several craft fairs and markets, and never hesitates to make the events a family affair, bringing her daughter and oftentimes her son to join in on the fun. She and her children understand that no matter how well she does during the events, they ultimately come so that they can spend time together with their family.
 
Come into The Cotton Company on October 17th (Ladies’ Night), November 1st (Holiday Open House), and November 8th (White Street Holiday Market) and request a custom bow from Lynda. She will have different sizes of bows, as well as different types of ribbon, to choose from. Bows can be requested and paid for on the same day and the bows will be ready for pick-up in no time!
