I’m happy to announce that “Art Evolved: Intertwined”, a 3-year traveling museum exhibit in which I have work, recently opened at Yellowstone Art Museum in Montana.
There is a continuum where beauty and function blend and diverge in the hands of the contemporary artist. The artists in this exhibition were invited to participate in the conversation between using different media to illustrate that continuum between beauty and functionality. My piece “It’s a Balancing Act” is included.
This far reaching exhibition was curated by two organizations. Studio Art Quilts Associates and The National Basketry Organization. The works were selected by 3 jurors on behalf of these two organizations. Here are the jurors. Beth McLaughlin is the Artistic Director and Chief Curator at Fuller Craft Museum. Jane Sauer is an internationally recognized curator, lecturer, and art consultant. And Lisa Ranallo is Registrar and Acting Curator at the Yellowstone Art Museum.
More about the Yellowstone Art Museum Exhibit
First of all, selected works will be traveling to various venues. Starting with the Yellowstone Art Museum, it will be followed by Northwest Quilt and Fiber Art Museum in Washington. Then, the exhibit will be on display at the Fuller Craft Museum followed by the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art. Please check the event calendar for all the dates and venues.
Meanwhile, a beautiful 127 page exhibition catalog has been created to accompany the exhibition. For anyone who will not be able to visit, this is an opportunity to see the works in this show. Visit the SAQA website to purchase a copy of the catalog.
Having said that, if you have the opportunity to visit any of the other venues, please do. There are both 2D and 3D works in this exhibit. Moreover, each of them is very intriguing in their workmanship and how they express the stated theme of the exhibit. Above all, it’s a unique exhibit and will be a delight to see.
