“Creations from my Head and Heart”, Work by Diane Goodbar through October 2016

dsg-collage2C’ville Arts presents a dual exhibit of original collages and hand knit children’s sweater sets by our talented member Diane S. Goodbar. The opening reception will be held on Friday, October 7th, from 6 to 8 p.m. during the Historic Downtown Mall’s First Friday event.

Diane Goodbar has been knitting for 57 years and started Heart Rushes more than a decade ago as a line of hand-knit baby and children items. Recently her granddaughters, (Mia and Izzy) and Diane decided todsg-sweater4 dsgsweater3collaborate. They came up with the Little Hands, Big Hearts collection of sweater and hat sets. Mia and Izzy design the sweaters and hats by drawing a picture and specifying colors and then Diane knits their artwork. The hangtag label on each sweater is a reduced print of their original drawing. They are very excited to offer you this imaginative, high quality line of wearable artwork.

dsg-collage3The exhibit will also feature Goodbar’s innovative collages. Each piece of the collage is hand-cut using razor-sharp scissors, then glued together to form the picture. There are no digital enhancements. She creates her collages much like a jigsaw puzzle, playing with light and shadow, and adding quirky elements of surprise. Diane also offers custom collages and at your request, she will create a collage that reflects individual style, hobbies, and interests. She can design and make that “perfect picture” to fill a particular space in your home or office.

For custom orders or other questions about her work, you can contact Diane via email atdsgoodbar@gmail.com.
