BILL JETER & LINDA MAYLISH: Curios, Notions & Creative Explorations

Visual artists Bill Jeter & Linda Maylish present a curio shop of their work in two and three dimensions.

Opening Reception - Friday, October 8th from 6 to 9 p.m.

Gallery Talk - Friday, October 15th at 7 p.m.

Family Day Workshop - Saturday, October 16th from 1 to 3 p.m.

Bill and Linda observed, as we planned their show, they had all sorts of art - two and three dimensional pieces, drawings, constructions, books and journals, objects and mementos. The feeling they wanted to achieve by bringing all these disparate pieces together was an old time curio shop...and this is exactly the atmosphere they created. The placement of the work, the choice of pieces, the juxtapositions, even they playfulness of it all, gave our gallery the air of something you might see in a 1930's or 1940's movie. Many of the pieces occasioned multiple conversations over the run of the show. Several people observed how pleasant it was to have some elements of the show which invited handling and touching.

The family printmaking workshop offered by Linda and Bill on a Saturday during the run of the show was a grand success, chaotic and productive and energetic and surprising. They provided us a model for how other classes and workshops might be connected to shows in the gallery.
