TEXTILE & FURNITURE
French Fix is a creative union of two artists, David Halbout and Nathalie d’Iris.
David Halbout is a furniture designer and maker with a passion for sustainability. Before founding his furniture business, David was a sound engineer specialized in creating sound systems in Paris, France.
In the current exhibition, he gives vintage pieces a new life with advanced technology and turns them into Bluetooth speakers. Inspired by the vintage sound systems, David created a versatile piece that is invaluable for entertainment: it is a flexible sound system with HD streaming, phono input, CD and TV capabilities.
Nathalie d’Iris is a textile artist. My main fascination lies within the manipulation of fibres and textiles as an expressive art form. Taking nature as my inspiration I explore long-term interests in texture, color, layering and process to create contemplative and ethereal artworks.”
In her work, she concentrates on natural fibres: wool, linen, silk, mohair, alpaca and angora. She finds her inspiration in flowers and grows her own natural dyes in her organic garden in Red Bank, NJ. In her craft, Nathalie preserves the original techniques: crocheting, knitting and wool felting.
The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council at 54 First Avenue in Atlantic Highlands, NJ is on the main street in AH, the lights in the windows are on 24/7, and hundreds of cars pass the Arts Council every day on their way to the SeaStreak Ferry to Manhattan. We are located right across the street from the Atlantic House & Copper Canyon, both extremely popular bar/restaurants; next door to Christine's another popular eatery; down the street from Nicolas Creamery, Una Pizza Napoletana , home of the famous Pizza Pope and Kunya Siam, the best Thai Restaurant in Monmouth County.
The Windows at the Atlantic Highlands Art Council are available for rental on a 6-week basis starting in
January, 2020. We'd prefer that one artist rent both windows so we can have as unified and striking a presentation as possible.
Window exhibitions will be juried in by the Exhibition Committee of the AHAC.
Please contact us for availability and fees at firstname.lastname@example.org
with "WINDOW RENTAL" in the Subject line.
