ART in PROGRESS
Mary Ann Beckwith visited St. Louis over a year ago and gave a demonstration of her work. She begins with stretching, very thinly, Halloween spider webbing across a special paper. After wetting the paper, acrylic pain is sprayed over the surface, first one color, then another, then the third. The final product emerges after various shapes are laid onto the surface and a white paint or mist of paint is applied.
The art group/play group met this week and created our own Beckwith Web art. The results, unfinished at this point, show promise. Beckwith's art is the vertical photo.
