Artist Nikki McClure Will Be Signing Her 2010 Calendar Sunday At Eat Local
New Burien business Eat Local will be hosting artist Nikki McClure this Sunday, Dec. 13th from Noon-1pm, when she will be signing her 2010 calendar.
According to owner Greg Connor:
Nikki does very few public events. We will be doing a tasting and it would be an opportunity for your readers to meet her.Â As you probably know Nikki is an artist recognized on the national stage. Her children’s book All In A Day is a New York Times bestseller and should win several prizes this year.
Using only an X-Acto knife, a single sheet of paper and the inspiration that surrounds her at her Olympia, WA home, Nikki McClure lovingly creates her intricate and beautiful papercuts. Her work constructs a bold graphic language that translates the complex poetry of family, nature and activism into endearing, positive and disarmingly powerful images.
This is the first year the cover has had more than just two colors; and what a wonderful use of color it is; only the threads in the sewing case are colored.
January also features a distinctive background; a first in Nikki’s calendars where she’s used a combination of two different cut papers. The background texture is a white paper creating a new sense of realism for the piece.
