Labor Day and Memorial Day week-ends in Coarsegold are always a wild time. Four days of great antique booths, visiting with friends and neighbors, and good eats. This year Ralph and I helped with the Coarsegold Historical Society's booth. We sold Raffle tickets for the Red, White and Blue Quilt, T-shirts, hats, books and souvenirs. If you get a chance to visit along Highway 41 in Eastern Madera County, come visit the museum, we are near the Chukchansi Casino.
Creating with mixed media textiles, in vivid colors gives Vivian Helena the opportunity to draw from her variety of artistic talents. Fiber art, photography, gourds and jewelry design are some of her passions. Living near Yosemite National Park, and beside the Fresno River, Vivian’s love of nature is evident in all of her art pieces.
Her work is featured in “Showcase 500 Beaded Jewelry”, and “1000 Artisan Textiles”. Vivian teaches at her home studio, and her art work is in Timberline Gallery, and Madera Circle Gallery in California.
