15 Sep 2010 Altered Barbie – Out-of-the-Box: A Date with Barbie
This workshop will be held at
Shotwell 50 Art Space, at 50 Shotwell Street in the Mission.
Get Barbie out of her box by altering a recycled Barbie – build her an environment and embellish with found materials from SCRAP.Sacred in her box, as she emerges she is transformed by adding or removing limbs and embellishment, with the potential of becoming a fantastic, horrible creature or beautiful icon. Create a new environment for her and/or her cohorts or decorate a Barbie object.
Ruby Pearl calls her art Sacred Profanities and creates Altar Boxes, Barbies and fine silver jewelry all focused on the divine feminine, which she shows in galleries in the Bay Area. She teaches occasional workshops and owned Sacred Profanities Gallery in Berkeley.
