New York City artists Andrea Bergart and Joe Ballweg painted a dhow sailboat sail during their stay at the Cuevas Tilleard Projects residency in Lamu, Kenya. Because of the demands of this monumental project—they required brilliant colors would adhere well to the sail, not crack or chip with movement, and hold up over time to the elements (sun, salt, sea, wind and rain)—Andrea and Joe opted to use Jacquard paints!

Regina Holliday - August 2016
In August 2016 in Grantsville, MD, 26 colorfully painted tire planters edged the side of Route 40 and delineated the arts and entertainment district in Grantsville. The students of Grantsville Elementary and local adult artists created the planter art using rice paper and Jacquard's Dye-Na-Flow. Many a town resident commented, “It sure brightens things up!”
It was a community-wide effort: Guys Tires, Northern Outreach Center, Mountaintop Truck Driving Institute of Garrett College and local citizens donated the tires. Chestnut Ridge Nursery of Grantsville donated flowers for the planters. Local volunteers prepared the tires for display with project facilitation provided by Grantsville artist Regina Holliday. The Greater Grantsville Business Association helped pay for the flowers and the town of Grantsville approved this volunteer public art project during town council meetings. The planters were on display since May 2016, and the colors are still bright!
Jacquard Products was extremely proud to have sponsored the The Happy Flag Project, an initiative started by Carrie Bloomston of SUCH Designs to honor and welcome the Dalai Lama when he visited Birmingham, AL by blanketing the city in thousands hand-made prayer flags, each one unique. What a welcome!
Quilting Arts magazine, June/July 2014
Margarita Korioth lives in a small town where art supply stores are not easily accessible. Her method of resist painting on fabric, using Jacquard’s Dye-Na-Flow, is great for using what’s around the house. Her food colored glue gel technique allows precise control, and offers freedom to create any unique shapes and designs.
Darian Stahl - May 2014
Darian Goldin-Stahl is a print artist currently working on her MFA at the University of Alberta, Canada. Her recent work involves a collaborative process with her sister, Devan Stahl, who has Multiple Sclerosis and works as a bioethicist. Using Jacquard's SolarFast and waxed silk “for its skin-like qualities,” their collaboration speaks to the experience of living with chronic illness. Darian was gracious enough to share her process with us.
