Bruce Kahn is back with his wildly unpredictable compositions! Part science fiction, part myth, part nightmare, half human with generous mixtures from the animal kingdon, Kahn's work gets everyone talking after they are done gaping at it with their mouth open.
(Somewhere in some of his works are some very familiar mammaries and buttocks, if truth be told.)
Multi-media constructions by Belinda Lyons Zucker pay homage to well known shoe icons such as Dorothy (The Wizard of Oz) and Elphaba (Wicked) with carefully sculpted and detailed shoes enshrined in miniature dioramas depicting these and other well known characters. Additional sculptures celebrate the symbolic aspects of footwear as more than just the perfect accessory. Companion shoe paintings and cards by Nina Rossi complement the show.
Opening Reception will be held during Third Thursday on April 16 from 5-7 pm. Take part in the Shoes of Turners Falls Project and have your footwear photographed for posterity!
During the month of January, I keep the store closed and attend to matters at home and inside my own mind. Take a breather, work on some fo the art that really matters to me, not having to keep up with the crafts market items.
This year, I am thinking about repainting the inside. It's been four years--and dozens of shows on those walls. Whether I get my butt in gear before the fourth annual Triple SSS exhibit goes up on the 1st of February is another matter. I have to empty out the entire store to repaint. I went downtown the other day to fetch a few items out of there, and the trip from the door to the car, through snow mounds and stuff, was so cold and windy, I gave up and went home instead. I need some sort of hyperactive condition to come over me and then I will do it.
AND I DID IT!
