Bailey Contemporary Arts Artist-in-Residence Andrea Huffman uses the translucency of silk organza in her fiber art as a metaphor for seeing what lies beneath the façade.  Drawing upon her own creative and intuitive spirit, Huffman uses a variety of techniques on fabric, including hand dyeing, printmaking, painting, and digital photography, along with hand and machine stitching, to convey her impressions of the natural world and the passing of time.  Her October exhibition “Sheer Intuition” at Bailey Contemporary Arts, will play on these themes.

Bailey Contemporary Arts will host both an Opening Reception (Oct. 4) and an Artist’s Talk (Oct. 16) for the exhibition. At the artist’s talk, Huffman will provide insight into her artwork practice and inspiration, and will answer questions from the audience. After the artist’s talk, guests are welcome to attend the Lyrics Lab open mic night, which follows.

Huffman taught art in Broward Public Schools for more than 30 years and received a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Florida International University. Though Huffman has retired from teaching in the public school system, she continues to share her passion for art, teaching classes and workshops in fiber art and mixed media at various art venues and guilds throughout Florida, including Bailey Contemporary Arts.

Huffman will teach a Fabric Fusion Workshop at Bailey on Oct. 19. She will guide participants to create a “painting” using only fabric that is composed by ironing the pieces together. No sewing or gluing required. Finished pieces will be matted or mounted to a canvas. All levels of expertise welcome. The admission price of $25 includes all supplies.
