Arthur Lemon-Butter

One of my sisters just crossed the 50 year mark. To celebrate, I made her a short animation.

She's always been a fan of artichokes, so I thought I would animate her favorite vegetable doing something. I wasn't quite sure what it should do, though. Dance around? Eh.

Childrens Book Artwork by Ellen Tumavicus: Ralph Flies the Coop

Please read this lovely write up by Artist Ellen Tumavicus, about the process of working with author Jaime Scanlon on the book "Ralph Flies the Coop." This exhibit will be on display through July!

Artist Statement:
I have always loved to draw and paint. Throughout my life, I have drawn the world around me. My face in a mirror, the view from the window of the train or the bus or the airplane, people on the subway and on park benches, my kids sleeping, the feelings I can’t put into words, the pears in the bowl on the kitchen table. Drawing has consistently been my avenue towards feeling good and connected with my inner and outer self.

Opening Reception at MGFA: Eric Boyer "Garden of Delights"

Mitchell • Giddings Fine Arts is pleased to present Garden of Delights, an exhibition of wire-mesh sculptures by Eric Boyer. An Opening Reception will take place Thursday, June 22 at 5 pm, with an Artist Talk Saturday, June 24 from 5-7 pm.  

Eric Boyer began exploring in wood, ceramics, and metalwork, and his work in wire-mesh is the result of a continuous search for a personal, expressive medium, which he discovered accidentally while working with metal scraps in a blacksmith shop. Garden of Delights represents over 20 years of artistic creation and reflects Boyer’s fascination with figure, form, and the endless expressive potential found in the intimate connection to one's materials. "Occasionally the figures have a story to tell..." says Boyer, "yet the wire-mesh itself is a material with no foreseeable limits as an artistic medium." Garden of Delights serves as a celebration of artistic investigation and the ongoing satisfaction that resonates through a chosen medium.
