Inspired by Tools of the Trade

Carnegie Art Center, Three Rivers, MI, June – August 2010
Artists take their inspiration from a host of sources internal and external, personal and universal,
sacred and profane. . . but one of the many things we have in common is a “connectedness”
with the tools that we use to explore ideas and create our work.

For this exhibition, I asked a group of Kalamazoo area artists to consider their tools in a more conscious way,
to allow their imagination to dwell on the things they use on a daily basis to create their work,
to look at the tools they may take for granted in a new way. . .

Show Statement

Several traditional quilt blocks along with a sunset among the pines (needles). Included blocks are Spools, Scrap Basket, Cotton Boll, and Patience Corner. There is a tiny unicorn, too, because there's a little mystery/myth in the creation of art.
