First Friday Trolley Hop at Block Party, Featuring Karen Abney and a
South Fourth Street Day of the Dead celebration
On Nov.1, First Friday Trolley Hop, Block Party Handmade Boutique will be
showcasing new work from artist Karen Abney in conjunction with SOFO Day
of the Dead celebration. Fascinated with Mexican culture and particularly the use of iconic religious items in their art, Karen Abney has crafted whimsical “Day of the Dead” art pieces that incorporate a “gringo’s” view of the style and beauty associated with Dios de los Muertos.
Karen Abney has been producing, showing and selling her hand-made art pieces for over 30 years. Her latest body of work, titled “Inner Landscapes” is a conglomeration of her favorite things: found objects, tree, Mexican Milagros and odd containers.
