Artist Carol Labashosky's planning in-studio demos
for Open Studio Nov. 14-15
     (Louisville, KY) -- Fine art by Carol Labashosky will be showcased at her gallery and studio Barking Dog Enterprises Nov. 14 and 15. She is one of more than 100 participating artists for Open Studio Weekend - Louisville Visual Arts and UofL. She will be doing demos both days so visitors can see how an artist creates in her or his studio.
     Labashosky's fine art includes “scrapboarding” – an art form she invented. Scrapboarding is fine art collage where themes materialize in 3-D. Labashosky combines paint, photos and memorabilia affixed to boards in dramatic vibrant compositions.
     She is currently creating a 3-D art on a board of the Wizard of Oz’s famed Emerald City. "I used green bottles of all different sizes for the city and tiles of brick for the road. I feel like a mason and an architect,” she said. Labashosky will have her collection of Titanic fine art and a new photograph exhibit on display and will have paintings, prints, fine art greeting cards and scrapboards available for purchase.
     Come and meet the artist during Open Studio on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 15 from noon-5 p.m. at Barking Dog Enterprises, #136 in Building One, Mellwood Arts Center, 1860 Mellwood Ave, Louisville, Kentucky. Get tickets for 2015 Open Studio Weekend at
