While in Wisconsin at the retreat last week, Frieda
and I ran out at the end of the presentation on day one for an art fix. We managed to get to the Racine Museum of Art
one hour before closing and had just enough time to take a quick spin through the building and see everything.
I loved these little ceramic birds by Annette Corcoran.
I was really drawn to the colors and oil painted kitchy travel images in this wooden "Highway Quilt" by Lisa Krivacka.
I really liked these whimsical garden themed objects. The metal can of peas sculpture is by Roberta Williamson and the cool thorny tools made from anodized aluminum are by Laura Marth.
I have only seen Diane Itter's work in books so it was really wonderful to see one up close.
Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
Mmmmm. Wonderful photos. Is the last piece woven?ReplyDelete
Yes terry, it is a small weaving with beautiful fine threads, maybe 12"- 14" across?ReplyDelete
What a great escape. Those birds are incredible! Have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
What fun. Thanks for sharing insights on your visit to this museum. I'd love to go see it someday!ReplyDelete
Love the ceramic birds! Thanks for posting that. I'm off to look for more.ReplyDelete
Only an hour? I can't imagine you being able to spend only an hour in there! But some is better than none. Have more pix?ReplyDelete
Vicky, the RAM is not a very big museum, so it was not rushed. The exhibits overall were really good though, sorry but I only snapped a few pics.ReplyDelete
looks like a fabulous museum, full of treasures.ReplyDelete
Wow! Gorgeous stuff.ReplyDelete
