Debbie Rudoy considers herself primarily a designer, working in the print- making media. She has been involved in both textile and surface designing, and at present is working In three major areas - silk screen, batik, and woodblock printing. "Basically I find myself working In fiber arts, which lends itself to many tactile and sense qualities. I want my Ideas, as well as my pieces, to be totally absorbed In as many ways as possible, finding that ttie tactile qualities of many of my pieces add to their appearance and Image portrayed," states Miss Rudoy. ' Exhibited is a collection of her most recent works, consisting of three phases of both time and idea. 7 Rudoy studied at theUnl- iversity, at. Maryland and State "University; one to instruct her in the all - but - dying - out art of china painting was difficult, but she succeeded and today is teaching classes of her own. Mrs. Gonser, who has studied with noted water- colorists such as Lowell Smith, Marc Moon, John Pike to name a few, finds the principles and techniques of watercolor apply more closelytochtnapalnt- Ing than do those of any other media. The many fine, thin coats of glazing, the brush strokes are similar to watercolor methods. "Color blends are harder to obtain in china painting than inwatercolor," the artist contends. "Whether Its a piece of china or a piece of paper, 1 still like landscapes best," and landscapes decorate the major portion of her work. The exhibit may be seen during regular library hours, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. dally, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays, closed Sundays. Contest rules state that the contest Is open to North Canton School District residents. Pumpkins may be carved, painted or decorated, or any combination of these.

A • For miny years the art of Swedish Weaving has been done on huckaback (huck) toweling; as border designs for hand and guest towels. Ruth Basner, Director of the North Canton Heritage Society, has taken these designs, fashioned them into numerous styles and framed them. The designs are achieved by pulling three strands of embroidery floss through the uniform nap of the material. However, there are some restrictions in making just any design because the rows of nap, although uniform, are staggered. Color selections are endless. Due to variations in the quality of the fabric, some stitching is finer. An accomplished Water- color painter, Jody Gonser has turned her efforts in recent years to china painting.
