Weekly Round-up 2/3-2/9

 

This has been a great couple of weeks!

I met Patricia Boyer in person, after finding her on Facebook. I stalked her artwork for a couple of days, then reached out. We did our interview at the Coffey and Thompson gallery.

It was the first time I had been there, even though i’ve passed by them for years.

When I got home from our interview, I got a text from another artist,  Carol Ann Minor’s daughter. She thought her mother would get a kick out of being interviewed. So I met with her at Coffey and Thompson,  

Carol is a very talented sculptor who has an inspiring story. She is deaf and basically a self-taught sculptor. [She wanted some figurines, so she made them herself out of soap!] Since then, she’s been coached and mentored by professionals who have helped her develop her natural talent. She uses other materials like bronze and clay. Stay tuned for the podcast…

It was great to see Sarah Ness again. She’s starting a new business, Arts in Health Institute, where she uses her skills to train other health professionals to incorporate the arts in their therapies.

Didn’t make it to any galleries this week, but I always enjoy the art at Legion Brewing, Plaza-Midwood at Tuesday night trivia. Art is curated there by Megan Lynch, who I haven’t actually met yet, but have read about & am super-impressed by.

Episode 55: Today I talk with Sonya Pfeiffer,  the new owner  of the Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art about her fabulous Art of Struggle exhibition, which features the art of MyLoan Dinh, Charles Farrar and Susan Brenner.

I was able to actually go to the gallery to see the exhibition for myself.  This emotionally charged show literally brought tears to my eyes as it shows a unique take on the nature of struggle and the beauty that can result.
