Ann Wood + Small Shoulders event at FIB

We have exciting things happening at {fill in the blank} Gallery right now, one of which is a free monthly community arts event that we’ve been working on called Small Shoulders. The idea is to bring the community together to experience art as a whole, using supplies that are very basic (the last one was prints made from fruits and vegetables) and easily accessible to create intricate and beautiful results.

Our next project is called Cardboard Stampede and is a project developed by Brooklyn-based artist Ann Wood. She has even been gracious enough to donate supplies for this project and we are so excited to be partnering with her on this! Please see more information about the event here.

Cardboard Stampede

We wanted to highlight some of her other work today. Her bio on her blog explains her work best:

“I work with mostly found, and salvaged materials, many of them vintage or antique garments. There is a kind of affection and tenderness in the re-use and re-purposing of things that were once personal and perhaps treasured possessions. Much of my inspiration comes from these materials as well as from many of the ideas I have been infatuated with my whole life : smallness, intricacies, miniaturization, collections, repetition; lost or abandoned things discovered and rescued; the idea of haunted and enchanted places, things and creatures; the setting of a tiny stage.”

You can see more of her work on her website: annwood.net. Enjoy!

About Us

Fill in the Blank Gallery was formed out of the desire to create a space where art can be presented, discussed, created, performed, written, shared, and taught on an accessible level. Our goal is to foster creativity in our community, which is so full of talent but perhaps lacking in creative outlets. Part artist collective, part gallery, we feature a wide range of artistic works each month including fine art, craft, film, and music.
