collaboration with artist Siân Barlow

at Red Chair Studios, St. Louis, Missouri

October 9 - November 1, 2021

Siân Barlow, Jen Herzig Smith, and Con Christeson met in an online workshop in 2020.

Siân and Jen have remained in touch with weekly discussions, offering each other support and sharing. Their creative work is as similar as it is different. Both are exploring the acts of folding, of dipping and pouring ink on paper, and of using simple resist techniques. Siân’s tiny books are inspired by winter skies over the mountain, and Jen’s bound sculptures are grown out of the earth of her garden.

Con has graciously supported this collaboration, and offered a space in the window of Red Chair Studios for their work to be brought together.
