Rose Chocolatier is hosting a reception Friday night for Ann Greene of Los Alamos.
On display will be her intricate beadweavings. The show opens at 5 p.m. and Ann will be on hand to talk about her works. Please stop in and see this incredible show and meet the artist.
Ann moved to Los Alamos from Indianapolis in 1984 because she had fallen in love with this place. She says, “It felt like coming home.” ‘Transitions’, her beadwork on a Bell Lap Harp, is her tribute to Los Alamos.
She explained that “The Pajarito Plateau has had numerous ‘Transitions’ from early Native American cave dwellers to homesteaders to the Ranch School. The work done here during the War Years led to a town that thrived after the War as exemplified by our US Post Office, built in 1948, now on the National Registry of Historic Places.
“The Cerro Grande Wildfire in 2000 was a major blow to the town, with over 400 households turned to ash, including ours. But Los Alamos survived and was renewed. Our new home is shown at the bottom of ‘Transitions’. “
Over 20 other images Ann has created in beads will be in the exhibition at Rose Chocolatier. She took up beadweaving as a hobby after retiring from a career in business information systems and has found this unusual art form to be immensely satisfying and relaxing.
Rose Chocolatier, 149 Central Park Square. Reception 5-7 p.m., Friday, June 16. All events open to the public.
