Hardware Show II

March 18, 2012

It’s not too late! The Hardware show is still on at the Fort Gallery until March 25. It’s the greatest fun

.

 Electric rotating fan, brush, wire, metal scrubber and other hardware, approx 30 cm tall. Artist: Bob Wakefield .

Each member of our artists’ cooperative was allowed to spend up to $40 to purchase materials at the hardware store and then had to produce a creation for our Hardware Show. It’s the second we’ve had – the first was in 2009.

It’s always the most intimidating, worse than working with a blank canvas, because for most of us, it’s just out of our comfort zone. But the beauty is that we produce some pretty far out stuff, and it’s the most fun of our yearly group shows.

Here are some more of our creative geniuses and what they came up with:

Jo-Ann Sheen installing her “100 centimeter dash“.

Lucy Adams with her three dimensional Cityscape made from wire mesh, fir frame, paint colour chips.

Judy Jones with her sculpture including distressed pine stool, bucket, wiring, light bulbs

Kathleen McGiveron (ceramist) with her wire formed bird mounted on fluorescent painted plywood

Doris Auxier’s  terrarium filled with fiberglass and illuminated from within by with an LED light

Dorthe Eisenhardt with her floating worm made from dryer venting, yarns and paint rollers for antennae

Olga Khodyreva : White dryer vent and foam packing cloth (approx 48 x  60 inches)

Bette Laughy: marble tile collage

Kristin Krimmel’s “Jonah the paintbrush” or “A Red Herring” made from Styrofoam packing,  metal washers, paintbrush

and

The show continues until March 25th,Wednesday to Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. at the Fort Gallery 9048 Glover Road, in Fort Langley, B.C.

Show notices

May 4, 2010

I’ve been inundated by family members who, at great effort, came great distance to see my show which is showing (by appointment only) at Hycroft Manor at the University Women’s Club in Vancouver. Both my sister and I are showing.

What with preparation, hanging and the reception (plus a household full of visitors), I’ve not had much time to  write.

I would like to notify you of Stephen Amsden’s show at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery in Maple Ridge, B.C. and Bette Laughy and Val Robinson are showing at the  Fort Gallery in Fort Langley. There are two weeks still for each of these exhibitions.
