Crafting Tradition: Oaxacan Wood Carvings

Ramirez Iguana

 

October 28, 2017 – January 21, 2018

The wood carvings from the Mexican state of Oaxaca in this exhibition are part of a longstanding tradition for creating folk arts and crafts. Mexico in general and Oaxaca specifically have produced varieties of textiles, ceramics, sculptures, and other art forms for many years. Most often, these art forms continue with the skills and designs handed down from generation to generation. However, the tradition of creating wood carvings is relatively young in Oaxaca. Individual artisans in a few small towns began making wood carvings during the mid-20th century. These sculptures did not become widely known or popular until the 1980s.

Gray Matters

Gray Matters Jan ZelferRedmond Give No Quarter

 

August 11 – October 29, 2017

Gray sometimes gets a bad rap: a neutral color without the drama of either black or white. Gray is in the middle, uncommitted to either full darkness or bright light. On those occasions when it does gain a little drama, gray is still a negative. We look forward to the clearing of gray skies and dread the sight of that first gray hair.

The paintings, drawings, prints, and photographs selected for this exhibition show the great artistic range that gray can have. In some cases, gray is the dominant color within the artwork, while in others it provides necessary counterpoints or complements to other colors.
