Various Artist Exhibition
Saw: Artists Explore the Tool as Canvas
December 5 – December 30, 2014
Curated by Scott Scarboro
In the vein of the 18th century practice of Tole Painting, the folk art of decorative painting on tin and wooden utensils, objects and furniture, local and regional artists use the hand saw or saw blade as a canvas and a source for inspiration. Artists embellished an existing hand saw or saw blade or used their own artistic technique to create a replica of the tool from another material. (wood, iron, glass, clay, etc)
Special musical performance by singer-songwriter Brigid Kaelin.
