I'm so pleased to invite friends and not-yet-friends to the opening of my first group show since last Fall. Thinking with our hands is a prime concern of mine as an artist and an educator. It is a different way to think, with divergent not convergent solutions. Please come and enjoy our art and hospitality- my wonderful colleagues include Daniel Allegrucci, Fiorella Gonzales-Vigil, Hovey Brock, Jacob Williams, Simone Couto, Quinn Dukes, Katherine Verdickt, Alexandra Hammond, Chang Shen Tan, Christybomb, Seirin Nagano, and Donna Cleary. Curated by my friends and colleagues Alexandra Hammond and Hovey Brock.
From the Curators: "...since the beginning of the 20th Century, the work of artists has increasingly shifted from the creation of hand-wrought, mimetic likenesses to the engagement of knowledge and ideas. This shift does not preclude traditional hand-skills and mastery of materials, but it changes their relationship with art objects and production. In “Thinking With our Hands” we draw on an expanded notion of craft: how conceptualization can be craft, and how doing and learning are forever linked."
