The Front Climbing Club-May artist is, Alexis Furlong. Alexis provide the following info about her showing.
I will be showing two separate bodies of work at this show. Both are created from artificial objects produced by humans. The first is an installation made of artificial flowers, and the second are sculptural "paintings" made out of metal bottle caps.
I use these and other objects in my work to first draw attention to the beauty of the object itself, and second to create a conversation about that object. What is (or was) it's purpose? Where and under what conditions was it made? Where will it end up? The intention of my work is to explore the relationship between the synthetic and the natural by weaving organic forms out of these materials and placing them on a wall in in order to be contemplated instead of looked over.
The Front Climbing Club at 225 20th St.
The Local Artisan Collective-This month we are featuring Roxanne Vigos from Sago Jewelry.
Roxanne has been making jewelry for the past 17 years. Jewelry was her first love, she was fortunate to have a job and a busy bead store. And over the years a desire to add fiber and found objects to the jewelry has developed. The process and the history of beads and findings has always been and element to the designs. After researhing sustainable metal suppliers and utilizing natural wood beads she discovered botanical dyes. In 2014 she began a series of experiments with natural dyes and after a year was able to take master classes with established international teachers. Currently working on t-shirts, and repurposed clothing with natural dyes. And now incorporating the naturally dyed fibers into jewelry. She will be launching the how to book "Ritual Color" that she co-authored with her friend and amazing artist Kathryn Spath of The Neon Thread. They will have an indigo vat and a Walnut dye vat that you can dip a BYO 100% Cotton t-shirt in for a small fee.
