Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
The closing reception for Manufractured Forward was Friday at CCA's Oliver Art Center, most of the artists were present, and glad that we had the opportunity for the work to be seen by the 60 some people that were part of the ACC Convenings Discussions that day on campus. Here are more images of the show.
Talking with Thomas, I was curious if this new piece was inspired by Louise Nevelson's Dawns Wedding Feast as I was in my new Dawning II neckpiece. He wasn't in a direct way, but is a fan of her work as well. Got me thinking could be interesting to have a show with artists in different media, using Nevelson's work as an jumping off point...
Archival photographs, UV treated gel capsules, acrylic
Speaking of drugs and the first of many stuffed animal images to occur over the course of the conference (really? yes, really), another of Andy's pieces, titled "Day", photographs placed in glass vials, and assembled in wood frame.
Harriete Estel Berman with her grass/gras'/ installation of recycled tin grass panels. Thomas Wold's work on the left, Laurel Roth's crocheted art on the wall behind.
You can almost imagine English ladies at teatime having this out on the table with the crumpets and scones.
Not so much with this one (below), unless of course the scones were scorched in the oven or the teapot dumps over...
Last of the images from Manufractured Forward coming up in Part 3.
Thank you to Emiko for sharing this visual feast.
Emiko brings up an interesting point about the stuffed animals. Also the crochet.
I don't know why, but there were several speakers that showed stuffed animals, along with various facets of crochet/knitting.Really!!!!!!!!!!!! I am just as surprised as you must be to hear this!
Still haven't figured it out, but stay tuned for more photos and commentary about the conference in this Crafthaus group.
I will try to bring up issues that will be relevant to your studio practice.
