Fall Art Activities Planned at Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery

A wide variety of interesting classes and exhibits are upcoming during the fall season at Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery, 1168 Orchard Park Road, West Seneca.

“One Trip and Three Rooms” is an exhibit of collages created using painted papers by artists Paulette Krakowski and Suzanne Borowicz. This exhibit takes collage artwork to another level; it was a year in the making after the artists took a summer workshop last year from internationally known artisan Elizabeth St. Hilaire. The opening reception will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, and the exhibit will remain on display through Sept. 30.

Enjoy The Journey has also issued a call for artist for their October exhibit titled Creative Smalls - Postcard Art. Open to all artists and mediums, artists may submit up to six pieces of 6x4 or 4x6-inch unframed artwork. Drop-off dates are Sept. 29-30 and the cost is $30 per artist. A prospectus is available at www.etjgallery.com.

A Clutch Purse class with artist Suzanne O'Brien will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. on two Thursday evenings, Oct. 12 and 19. Wet felting is a process by which wool roving transforms into a nonwoven textile, a felted fabric. With simple materials and a little hard work, participants will create a wool clutch purse made from hand-dyed Merino wool roving. This purse can be used to store small crafting notions or for your next night on the town! The cost is $50 and includes all supplies.

A Wet Felting Vessel Class with artist Suzanne O'Brien is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21. Create a beautiful wet felted vessel from wool in beautifully dyed colors.
