Round Rock (PRWEB) September 24, 2008
Entrepreneur and Artist Paula Parker, owner of Paula Parker Designs, Austin, Texas, today announced the unveiling of a new series of "Small Art" at Beyond the Red Door boutique and studio in Round Rock.
Parker will also be at Beyond the Red Door on Thursdays between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. During this time Parker and Ginger Huggins, owner of Beyond the Red Door Boutique will spend time getting to know Huggin's special clientele.
Paula Parker has spent the better part of the last 20 years as a professional designer and artist. She specializes in her self-created art form called "plaster mache sculpture" and mixed media using antique texts and documents as the basis for her pieces. Her art has a vivid, mysterious quality that is simultaneously ancient and timeless in tone.
"The warm and bright colors in Paula's newest art piece "Nature Collage 24" created an ideal complement to the vivid fall colors currently coming into the story," said Ginger Huggins, owner, Beyond the Red Door boutique and studio, located at 106 South Mays Street, in the historic downtown shopping district of Round Rock, Texas, just north of Austin.
"I enjoy creating art that takes the viewer to another time and place," said Parker. "While it would seem like my larger pieces have an easier time transporting the viewer, I find that small art has a special way of drawing in the viewer, forcing them to concentrate on the work at a level not often achieved with larger formats. You almost have to stare and meditate on the art, and that extra time spent makes the small art even more powerful than you might think at first."
Parker's series of six small art pieces range in size from 3.5" x 4.25" hand-dyed paper on glass bowls ($79) to 11.5" x 11.5" plaster mache sculptures ($300). The artwork will be on display and available for sale at Beyond the Red Door (boutique phone: 512-246-9908). Parker is also available for commissions.
You can meet Paula Parker at Beyond the Red Door on Thursdays between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
