A long time friend of mine, Flora Rosefsky, is one of these artists that is so very humble about her work, and of course she is phenomenally talented! She creates wonderful cut-paper collages, but is also an art quilter and a stained glass artist! Her work is so colorful and folksy, yet has beautiful emotional connections. She is going to show samples of cut paper portraits she has been doing as well as selling some matted prints of her work. She will be taking commissions at the Pyles residence, 107 Dartmouth Ave. for Art in the Afternoon this Saturday, June 7, 3-7 pm

Rosefsky loves to cut. She directs her favorite long-pointed scissors as they glide through painted paper, fabric, or ephemera. With an intuitive sense of color and composition, like Henri Matisse, she thrives on the freedom to “draw with scissors,” in a spirit of spontaneity that is so much a part of each new work. Her collages reflect a personal and eloquent spirituality, with a common thread—her work is irrepressibly joyful. Rosefsky began her career as a self-taught folk artist while living in Upstate New York and later studied art in a Syracuse University graduate extension program and at Binghamton University. Her work can be found in several public collections as well as private collections in New York and Georgia.
