Does it work for all artists to be out of their comfy studio and into a public venue for a month? Is it easier for a 3D artist to create vs 2D while on display? It’s too early to tell for our group of four but it will be an interesting conversation for next week.Continue reading “Artists@Work: day 4”

Artists@Work: Day 3
Even before taking off to the Arts Center, I had to snap one photo of all the vultures in the back field. Grass seed farmers were cutting crops today which stirs up a great commotion in the avian world. I counted over 20 turkey vultures, 3 red tailed hawks and one immature bald eagle gettingContinue reading “Artists@Work: Day 3”
Artists@Work: Day 2
Kendal joined into our group today and it’s a pleasure to have her! The gallery finally feels full now. It’s funny to see people’s responses to the show.

I managed to finish 5 pig gut covered wire “pillow” forms this morning and the house still reeks of it. Here theyContinue reading “5 drying”
More wire and gut
I’ve been playing around with more wire in hopes of finding something that feels right. This concept has been in the works for a couple of months and I was anticipating finishing it for the Howland Community open. But then life changed. Current status: in progress. Displayed on the table are the wire forms waitingContinue reading “More wire and gut”
Reliquary Project: Finished??
Here are some final images with window coverings in place. Lighting and battery pack will be installed tonight. Tomorrow it’s off to the Arts Center where I hope it will sell!
