Dawn Allen's Secret Garden


 Poppy II

A solo exhibit  highlighting Dawn Allen's fabric art from the past two years, will be at the Rinnova Gallery in Westfield, MA, September through October and the artist reception will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Friday, October 7.. Most of the artwork from the "Larger Than Life Flowers" series will be there as well as several new and not yet exhibited pieces.

The “Larger Than Life Flowers” series is inspired by the moment in the Wizard of Oz when the movie turns to color and the camera pans across giant colorful flowers. This series is fun, exiting, and happy. These original art pieces hang on the wall and bring cheer to your space.

All of the pieces are made from fabric using modern art quilting techniques and Dawn's own method of transforming the usually flat quilt medium into three dimensional art. 

The Rinnova Gallery is located at 105 Elm Street Westfield, MA, 01085.
