Sun Valley Museum of Art (SVMoA) is pleased to present “Painted Scarves” with Lisa Flowers Ross—a single-day workshop on Saturday, May 1, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at SVMoA’s Hailey Classroom. The Museum’s 2020–2021 Craft Series Workshops are generously supported by Heather Horton and Deida Runswick.
In this workshop, participants will create their own hand-painted scarves and leave with a unique, wearable piece of art. Instructor Lisa Flowers Ross will discuss a variety of fabric painting techniques and then guide students in adding color to a blank white scarf. Participants will carve their own stamp designs to add patterns and accents to their scarf.
Boise artist Lisa Flowers Ross creates abstract textile art that reduces core elements into basic shapes and organic forms. Her hand-dyed colors and distinct edges create a graphic quality, while added stitching enhances the tactile nature of the fabric. Nature and daily observation are the main sources of inspiration for her work. Flowers Ross’ artwork has been exhibited in solo, group and juried exhibitions nationally and internationally, and are included in private, public and corporate collections. She has created several public artworks, received grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the Alexa Rose Foundation, and been an artist-in-residence in Oregon, Idaho and Wyoming. Flowers Ross holds a bachelor’s degree in studio art (drawing) as well as a degree in business. She is a juried artist member of the professional groups Northwest Designer Craftsmen and Boise Open Studio Collective Organization.
“I first saw Lisa’s work at her beautiful studio in Boise,” said Jeanne Knott, Visual Arts Class Assistant at SVMoA. “She has a lot of experience with fabric paints, and I am thrilled she is able to teach a class with us at SVMoA.”
In the interest of community health and safety, SVMoA is adhering to CDC guidelines and the Governor of Idaho’s orders as it invites people back to its museum, classes and programs.
