Our newest Well + Wonder artist, Sarah Rafferty has opened our eyes to the world of cyanotype photography and we couldn’t be more excited! Based in the Brandywine Valley (a home to many artists over the years and just 20 miles west of Philadelphia) Sarah Rafferty is surrounded by land that deeply inspires and creates a yearning within her to explore and appreciate. Through her artwork Through her thoughtful and dynamic botanical compositions - Sarah tells a story of her surroundings using the oldest photographic process - cyanotype. The process of mixing a light-sensitive chemical solution, painting it on paper, and exposing the work to sunlight.
"Is this art for real?"- The team at Well + Wonder when we first laid eyes on Jacqueline Watt's incredible cut leather landscape collages. Well we are here to say that y'all are in for a treat because a collection of these collages will be hanging on our gallery walls in just two days! So, it is with such joy that we can finally say...Welcome Jacqueline Watts!
My daughter's preschool teacher used to talk about days or feelings or people that "filled your bucket up." Our pop up show in Nashville three weeks ago was one of those days. That evening as I drove home to Louisville my heart full, I was reminded of that sentiment and how one day can be so meaningful even in the wake of tragedy. Natalie Hager is a rockstar mom, designer, and gatherer of good people (I think I just coined that term). I know this well because we were sorority sisters back in the day at Vandy and I've known Natalie for years (nevermind how many). Natalie is also one of our original Well Collected Guide members and as part of this program she reached out to us about collaborating on a pop up this spring as an open house to show off her new beautiful studio on Music Row.
