Midnight in the Garden of Indigo batik Exhibit At Butterfield Garage Gallery
February 7, 2020@11:00 am-February 29, 2020@5:00 pm
Cindy Wilson’s indigo batiks are featured in February at Butterfield Garage Gallery Friday Febuary 7, 2020, at 6:00pm Cindy will present an artist talk explaining her process, and experiences of working with indigo.
The show, titled Midnight in the Garden of Indigo results from Cindy’s focus in 2019 learning to use indigo dye for batiks. The infinate shades of blue, and the extreme lightfastness of indigo intrigued her, and indigo research and dye vats soon took over her studio. Dying with idigo requires both science and art. The results are batiks that have an other worldly feel, a haunting stillness, and though the images are beautiful, they reveal an incomplete visual story. These monocromatic images will encourage the viewer to see the familiar in a new light as well.
During the past five years, Cindy’s work has caught the attention of both jurists and collectors. She has been included in numourous regional shows and her batiks grace the homes of many collectors around the country. She teaches her technique in classes at The Bascom Center for the Arts in Highlands NC, as well as locally.
A short history of indigo and its role in St. Augustines past, plus A hands on demonstration of batik and the idigo dying process will be presented Saturday Feb 22, at Butterfield Gallery.
