Suzanne Connors Shares “The Alchemy Of Indigo” At Lighthouse ArtCenter Thursday November 15

Suzanne Connors, the noted textile artist, says “the magic when the freshly dyed indigo comes out of the vat and turns from green to blue right before your eyes is like opening a gift on Christmas morning.” Join us at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, FL on Thursday, November 15th, when she reveals the mysteries of Indigo, once more valuable than gold, now taught in contemporary art and design.  3rd Thursdays at the Lighthouse ArtCenter are monthly receptions that bring together artists and art lovers to relish tasty hors d’oeuvres, quaff a nice wine and enjoy a variety of presentations. From cultural conversations with renown artists to exhibition openings and award ceremonies, guests are surrounded by the art installation in the gallery.  This month visitors will delight in Elegant Threads: Wearable Art and Surface Design. The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks.

Variety of Indigo Dyed Fabrics by Suzanne Connors

 

 

Suzanne Connors is a Fiber Artist in Stuart, Florida, who creates beautiful hand-dyed works of art at the Aya Fiber Studios located in the Fish House Art Center. She draws her inspiration from life in South Florida and her time spent living in the Caribbean Islands. She says that she is “enchanted by the colors of a setting sun and the Indigo blues of the sky and the sea.”

About Indigo from Aya Studios:

Indigo is an ancient dye derived from the leaves of plants and surrounded by magic, mystery and folklore. Discover how the leaves ‘make blue’ by learning about the character and chemistry of the natural indigo vat. The complex chemistry of the indigo vat is fascinating, and rituals have grown around the making and using of a successful vat. The unique ‘attaching’ of indigo to fiber means it is particularly suited to resist methods of dyeing, such as shibori, where portions of cloth are closed off to the dye or where the flow of dye is restricted. Different shades of blue build on the fabric after several dips, exhibiting the beautiful graded hues which are so typical of indigo.
