Field Work Exhibition
The Field Work exhibition was on display at the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center in Baker City, Oregon during the month of June 2022. Artworks from my Field Studies series were on view along with ceramic pieces from Mullox Studio. Mullox Studio consists of the team of Kelly Cox and Eric Mullis.
They created smaller ceramic works during the pandemic portraying protective “tools” which explore the idea of control and safety. Their collaborative works mingled with my two dimensional textile pieces.
Early in the afternoon before the Field Work exhibition opening reception, I did a demonstration of my fusing technique at the Baker Heritage Museum. Then, I went over to the Crossroads Carnegie Art Center for the reception. It was well attended and local Garwood Allen provided piano music for us.
Twenty-one artworks from my Field Studies series were on show through the month of June. Inspired by different locations around the western states, I created the pieces with varying degrees of abstraction, as you may notice from the photos. The titles contain an alpha-numeric code system that indicate the locations that inspired the artwork. I displayed several pieces representing Oregon and was happy that one of the artworks sold to someone that lived in Portland, Oregon who was passing through to see the exhibition.
It was a nice venue with friendly staff. I would recommend stopping by if you find yourself in Baker City, Oregon.
