The final installment in a series of posts highlighting artists from Dysfunctional, curated by Roberto Lugo, on display at Pewabic through May 14, 2017.
These are the fourth and fifth artists in a series of posts highlighting DYSFUNCTIONAL, curated by Roberto Lugo, on display at Pewabic through May 14, 2017.
Scott Weaver wanted to do something special for Pewabic Pottery and for Detroit, to honor where he got his start and the city’s current vibe of revitalization.
“The domestic object as souvenir” is how Margaret Kinkeade sums up her work, which often reflects upon the nature of collections.
In Betty’s Delight, Brown, Red and White, Arrangement No. 1, Kinkeade translates fiber art quilt patterns and the concept of transmitting familial traditions, well wishes and meaningful heritage patterns into an arrangement of 40-some 6 x 6 inch mid-range stoneware, red stoneware and porcelain with underglaze plates with which visitors interacted at the exhibit’s opening.
