MAXINE WEST: The Spoon Project
Another artist who has had shows in the past at Homewood Studios, Chrys Laramy, introduced us to the work of Maxine West.
We enjoyed our conversation with Maxine about her work and about her interest in a show in our gallery. While she does other things, the Spoon Project drawings are something new.
Opening Reception: Friday, August 6th from 6p to 9p
Gallery Talk: Friday, August 13th beginning at 7p
That magical thing which occurs when an artist sees her work up on the walls of the gallery, collected and presented in a way that never happened when the work work was stacked in her studio, took place again in our gallery with this wonderful and insightful show.
From George Roberts:
The drawings about Maxine's relationship with her mother, and the story she told during the gallery talk, had their effect on me. I was working on a poem about looking out the window in early fall when, unexpectedly, a spoon appeared in the grass below me. It was my mother, dead seven years, back for a quick visit.
