New items are in at The Purple Moon and at Modern by Design in advance of our growth and Chuck and Connie hope you will stop by and check things out.

In addition, The Purple Moon will be conducting one of the largest estate sales in Kanawha County ever in July – a 20,000 sq. foot warehouse chock full of antiques, glass and collectibles – and will be providing information on this sale during ArtWalk including preview photos of this remarkable collection.

As always, exciting things are happening at The Purple Moon and we look forward to seeing our friends during ArtWalk.

Sculpture by Barbara Harris Walker at Stray Dog Antiques

Monday, June 17th, 2013

For June’s ArtWALK on June 27, 2013 from 5-8 PM Stray Dog Antiques on Hale Street will be featuring the mixed media sculptural artwork of Barbara Harris Walker.

Walker’s pieces purposefully combine the rustic with the ritualistic. She creates them using drafting tools, found objects, leather, glass, wood and bone. Many of her objects on display in this exhibition are functioning rattles, specifically for the
creation of sound. Each form is stitched and beaded meticulously using traditional methods, evoking the meditative and mathematical integrity of ancient art forms.

In her artist statement, Walker pays homage to artists Genny Zebach and Diane White, whom she says have provided her with “valuable inspiration as teachers and mentors.”

Barbara Walker is a Charleston resident and Honors BFA Graduate of Denison University. For more information contact Stray Dog Antiques at 304-346-1534
