Here is my contribution to the Alberta Flood Rose Project, an amazing undertaking spearheaded by Teri Heinrichs. This exciting art collaboration project was created by Calgary and area artists to raise funds for the Canadian Red Cross Flood Relief. Each artist was asked to create a 4" x 4" original work of art depicting our provincial flower.
There has been a lovely book created that shows all the art donated and all the net proceeds form the sale of the book will go to the Red Cross Flood relief. To learn more or view some of the art, please go to www.thealbertafloodroseproject.com

This is the boot I started with and the next two images show how I transformed it into "Colour Me Copper". This was a fun project and I encourage you to check out Footprints website at http://footprintsdance.com/fundraiser.htm - you also find a cool video in their links on YouTube.

Calyx this past weekend was busy. Sunday was a beautiful day and more than 630 people came to the Art Exhibition and Sale that day. I am attaching a link because Calyx in Edmonton is coming up Saturday, May 5 at the Pleasantview Community League Hall. It should be another great day.

One of my pieces (a Metal Collage Quadtych - Four Vertical Panels) entitled 'At The Circus' was chosen to be this Group Show.
Artist: Susanah Windrum
Title: At The Circus
Medium: Metal Collage Quadtych
Materials: Post-Consumer Metal Tins, Metal Bottle Caps, Metal Rivets, Wood, Acrylic Paint
As a young girl, my parents took me to art galleries to show me Pop-Art Exhibitions. I remember being intrigued looking at a cupboard made from scraps of wood that opened to reveal a pop can, set on a pedestal, like an altar. That pop can meant something, it was important; it wasn’t just a piece of trash. As a child, I might not have seen the message the artist intended but what I saw was that a pop can was more than disposable. That artwork made me look at things differently.
I love the process of making something fresh and exciting out of materials that otherwise might just be cast off. Working with found and recycled metal is a stimulating challenge as you must craft your vision with the resources you have collected. In a throw-away society, it is very satisfying to work with post-consumer metals and create art that has historical reference and is at the same time new.
Created from images and pieces of thirteen different tins and thirty-four bottle caps, At The Circus, layers images, text, pattern and colour to invoke the excitement and animation of the circus. Like the activity at the circus there are many elements competing for your attention. The materials are mundane and commonplace until they are juxtaposed to each other creating tension and movement and hopefully allowing you to see them differently.

Named for the song "Someone's in the Kitchen with Dinah", she stands 10.5 inches tall and is 9 inches from fork tip to fork tip with a 4 inch base. Both of Dinah's arm/utensils were recovered in thier flattened state from campgrounds and given to me by people who know my work.
