This group combines original work using purchased or "found" materials - i.e., materials discarded or donated by others & then altered by me. The umbrella is Trump Era Preoccupations - although the beginnings nearly all pre-date the Era, these pieces speak to some of the key issues that have heated up since last year's U.S. presidential election outcome.
The two Shades of White houses are part of an on-going series. They are scale-model representations of art "safe houses" that I'd like to see in every American neighborhood, if the NEA is abolished - see more photographs and details on the Dollhouse Gallery pages of this website.
Also at this Artomatic, I installed a metal coat-rack loom and a basket of loom-friendly materials for visitors of all ages to weave. This was my third collaborative weave at Artomatic; see photos on the Collaborative-Community Projects pages.
