Ukraine Art Exhibitions

Russian Magazine and Catalog - Bledsoe

Along with the Doll Art Show, Kiev, Ukraine also has a Bead Art Exhibition and both had coverage in this Russian magazine.   I wish I could show you all the fabulous works of beaded art.  Included in the magazine are patterns and instructions to create the most awesome necklaces, etc.  Their beading skills are of the same high caliber as their doll making skills!

The show published a big, full color catalog and each participating artist got a page featuring their work.  Here is my page – and my name in Cyrillic!  I’m having so much fun studying all the styles of the different artists.  This was a wonderful experience!   


Frazier and Nash - Goblins - BledsoeGOBS – the happy, harmless variety of goblins.  Best gob buddies, Frazier and Nash love a good card game and their game of choice…Go Fish!  Later they will indulge in over-eating their favorite – marshmallows with mustard for dipping.  Looser buys!
