    Cruces Creatives Presents:

    June Art Ramble Featuring:

    Bernadette Frerker. Larimar

    Myth-ology Making

    Opening Reception: Friday June 7, 5:30-8:30PM

    Show will run from June 7- July 1

    Artist Statement:

    I am inspired by nature and my environment. I am interested in mysticism as it relates to place.  My vision is an imaginary illusion of equality and peace and the the creation of the figures it will manifest itself into human experience.  My art is focused on ceramic sculpture with some additional materials and functional ceramics.  My  work explores a fantastical world related to the spiritual and divine feminine mystique.  Each piece tells a story not always evident to the viewer.  My work is influenced by feminine images, sculptures and carvings from ancient times and ancient pottery and ceramic figures found throughout the world.  I create human like beings with androgynous or simple forms and references to animal-god forms and mystical creatures.  They are Spirit Dancers that appear to celebrate, contemplate, or begin as journey of reawakening from a memory of a different time and place.  There is a profound connection with the earth and celestial universe.  These images maintain a mysterious origin and provide and opportunity to imagine a different existence where equality and justice are a norm, not a dream.

    Bio:

    Bernadette Frerker Larimar is a ceramics artist known for her psycho-whimisical anthropomorphic sculptures.  Her work is an expression in her love for nature, spirituality and the divine feminine mystique.  She works primarily with ceramics utilizing various slips, underglazes, glazes and lusters.  Her techniques include coil-building and throwing on the wheel and hand building to create human and abstract forms.  She works with earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain.  She currently resides in the high desert of New Mexico and finds she inspired by the stark beauty of her environment.

    The Charitable Crafting Project makes textiles for good causes: children's clothing to replenish the supplies at Gospel Rescue Mission; blankets, clothing, and holiday bags for Casa de Peregrinos; and other charitable projects proposed by participants.

    In a collaborative effort, participants work hands-on, going through the entire process of garment construction. Participants with higher levels of skills in a particular area can guide those with lower skill levels, and we'll make as many garments as we have the time, materials, and labor to make. 

    This is a free program using donated materials. If you’d like to be involved, you can

    • Help make clothing by sewing or assisting during the charitable crafting sessions
    • Donate fabric or other sewing supplies by dropping them off at Cruces Creatives during business hours. The project can use yarn, fabric pieces of ½ a yard or longer, inner facings and linings, and other sewing supplies and notions.

    More information about the program is below.

    Pre-requisites: 

    • Safety training for the Cruces Creatives textile room (provided free at the beginning of each Charitable Crafting session)
    • Previous sewing experience is helpful, but not required. If you don't sew, you can come to pin and cut, iron, and make information labels. If you can't stay to create, donate!

    What to bring:
    Multiple sewing machines and many supplies are available, so all you need to bring is yourself. More supplies and equipment would be welcome, though, so if you’re able, please bring sewing supplies like scissors, pins, and the like; sewing notions like buttons, elastic, zippers, lace and trim, and thread; and—if you’d like to use a familiar machine—your sewing machine.

    Ages: 
    18 and older, or 14-17 with a parent or guardian present

    About the facilitator:
    Dina Honeycutt has been sewing and practicing other textile crafts for about 45 years, making clothing and toys for friends, family, and charitable projects. She especially enjoys cooperative work for its opportunities to share knowledge and skills.
