Before the summer slips away, here's a table I designed during SCAD Style, a dazzling series of events on style and design at the Savannah College of Art and Design in May. Jaithan and I were in town for a panel called From Magazine to Monitor — The Rise of the Blog, moderated by Michelle Adams from Lonny.President Paula Wallace for visiting artists and their guests at a gallery on campus. On view, I learned, would be an exhibition by San Francisco artist Clare Rojas.
Her works are deeply rooted in American folk art, often depicting block patterns of traditional quilts and stylized botanicals, like poppies.Working Class Studio at SCAD, who silkscreened their own interpretations onto linen runners in a crisp, lime green. Grey Line Linen. The students even made custom napkins using the same linen, each with a single element from the quilt patterns enlarged in scale. I thought they'd make for a cool, graphic play on the runners.
Creative Candles. Together, the combination of colors felt fresh and modern without being childlike.
