Art & Craft On The Go With Dowdy Studio
All Photos by Sara Kerens
Hopefully everyone is rested and sober by now after all the Dallas Observer Music Awards partying that took place in the last week (and for some, the week before, too). If not, we promise to speak softly. Although, if you hear a rumbling rolling down the street, it just might be the Dowdy Wagon headed to one of your favorite local haunts.
Make way for Dowdy Studio in our latest installment of Profiles In Pictures. As usual, photographer Sara Kerens gives us an intimate look at another local creative outfit and we ask them our set of standard Qs. Take a look inside and outside the wagon and read what these mobile locals and Etsy Dallas members have to say after the jump.
When we're not blaring music, throwing back coffee and working away in our bright red garage turned art studio, Dallas is our regular stomping (or rolling) ground for the Dowdy Studio Wagon. We roll in and pop-up shop in various places on a weekly basis. Regularly people can find us at Good 2 Go Taco in East Dallas, Bolsa Cafe in Oak Cliff, or check our schedule on our website to find out where we'll be and when.
What do you find the most satisfying about what you do, and why?
What is your favorite tool/special resource that allows you to do what you do?
What do you enjoy the most to do when you're not creating/working?
If you could snap your fingers and immediately possess the knowledge/skills of an entirely different discipline, what would that be, and why?
Pamela: I'd have to go with an art photographer with a kinda journalistic story telling twist. Photography has always been an interest of mine, and I love the creativity that goes behind the lens and the images artists can pull out of real life. I'd travel a whole bunch taking pictures in series. Maybe I'd do a visual story about a town, then go back 20 years later and retake the same images to show the changes of life, or go to abandoned shops and shoot the destruction of time and neglect. Yah, that'd be awesome.
