Event Description

Smithsonian Craft Optimism - Blue Skies Workroom / Alyssa Salomon by Blue Skies Workroom
Fine art and everyday practical play together in Alyssa Salomon’s rural studio outside Richmond VA. Tote bags, pillows, one-of-a-kind gifts. For work and for rest. Decades of visual training behind each seemingly simple item. Affordable, durable and designed to bring a dash of happiness. Linen and cotton sing with bold patterns and captivating color combinations, hand screen printed with eco-friendly, water-based inks. Alyssa has always loved working with cloth and paper. Her grandfather was a tailor in Brooklyn NY. Her mother taught her to sew as a young girl. Established artist, accountant, chicken-keeper, kayaker and educator, Alyssa fell in love with screen printing at Penland School of Craft. Her favorite color is still fluorescent. More work found at BlueSkiesWorkroom.com. Follow Blue_Skies_Workroom on Instagram. A zippered pouch, apron, tea towel or journal is waiting for you. Read more
