I took pictures of this show, just ended at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul. Nine area artists showed their interpretations of “shiny” in a mixed-media exhibit. The exhibit features more than 70 works ranging from metal and glass (beads!), to art books and textiles. I will be covering this in two parts – one of Jo Wood’s works, and one of some of favorites of the other pieces. As a disclaimer, the light was quite low, and these pictures were taken without flash and hand-held.
Here are some of those favorites:
Aphrodite’s Dilemma Too by Carolyn G. Halliday, hand knit wire
Bernadette Mahfood, micromacrame for the first two pieces, fused glass for the last.
Beetlephilia: Stag Beetle by Robyn Beth Priestley, mixed media book cover/shadowbox with handmade and imported paper, paint, polymer clay, found objects
