April Program: Linda Rael
Meeting Time: 10:00 a.m. – Noon, Monday, April 8, 2019.
San Antonio Garden Center 3310 N. New Braunfels Avenue, SATX 78209.
Linda Rael creates magical figurative pieces in her enchanting Boerne studio. Soft sculpture and clay are the basic ingredients. They are highly embellished with embroidery, beads and found objects, including natural elements found on walks in the woods. Her award-winning work transcends category and genre.
About her work, Linda says, ” Concepts for my art pieces are drawn from nature and the relationship we humans have with it. This relationship may take form as petroglypths, ancestor figures, shamans, animals and fairies. I find this relationship more important than ever given the environmental challenges we face today. Although the relationship between humans and our environment is a serious subject, I attempt to approach it with humor and whimsy through my figurative work.
Linda has had her work published in several books as well as these selected publications:
- Belle Armoire
- Somerset Studio
- Art Doll Quarterly
- Cloth, Paper, Scissors
- Quilting Arts
- Haute Handbags magazine
Come for the lecture and stay for the afternoon workshop!
