Shiny is my favorite color, part one

I took pictures of this show, just ended at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.  Nine area artists showed their interpretations of “shiny” in a mixed-media exhibit.  The exhibit features more than 70 works ranging from metal and glass (beads!), to art books and textiles.  I will be covering this in two parts – one of Jo Wood’s works, and one of some of favorites of the other pieces.  As a disclaimer, the light was quite low, and these pictures were taken without flash and hand-held.

Here are some of those favorites:


Aphrodite’s Dilemma Too by Carolyn G. Halliday, hand knit wire


Alan Honn




Bernadette Mahfood, micromacrame for the first two pieces, fused glass for the last.


Beetlephilia: Stag Beetle by Robyn Beth Priestley, mixed media book cover/shadowbox with handmade and imported paper, paint, polymer clay, found objects
