Marie Bergstedt: Revelations

Artist statement –  My artwork tells stories. Often a piece is sparked by current events. Then, inspired by my personal experience, I draw upon one of my mixed-up family of bloodlines or close friends to explore the contradictions, tragedies, challenges, and sometimes bliss of their tales.

Through portraits and symbols, I unbutton stories, mend tears, unveil, and discover as I stitch together the narrative. I believe traditional handwork techniques such as knitting, crocheting and embroidery best visualize what I hope to convey. My goal is to touch viewers, using textiles as a universal experience and bridge, and to encourage others to discover their own or a more-widespread dialogue.

Braeda Horan: The Beauty That Surrounds Us

Braeda Horan is a long time resident of Mill Valley. She ran her successful clothing design company for over twenty-five years from her studio with views of Mt.Tam.

After initially working as a designer she took a break from the fashion world, living in the East African bush for two years. Under the auspices of Fritz Schumacher she started and ran a non-profit African Art Gallery in Central London, working directly with the artisans to provide marketing support and representation. This led to her being offered the position of Small Scale Industries Director for Save the Children, working throughout the USA, Central and South America.

On her way back from visiting projects in South America she would frequently stop in San Francisco and visit Mill Valley where she moved and started her own clothing line, Braeda Horan Designs.

She is currently taking her years of experience of working with color, textures and shapes to create artwork for her new collection of decorative art prints.
