My gallery wanderings last week were highlighted by Marie Watt‘s show at Greg Kucera. Sometimes it seems like the refined, machine-made look dominates much art made today. A refreshing contrast, Marie’s work is human-based in content and in form. Individual, handmade stitches and stories make up the work in this show, and each stitch and story can be a resting place or a jumping-off point. Cowboys and Indians and Abstraction and Grandmothers fight and sit and look at you.
I would have liked to go to her talk on the 15th, but it was the same time as the Proposition 8 protest/equal rights march.
