A few works from All in the Family Exhibit

The "All in the Family" exhibit will be coming down at the end of the week, so I thought I should share a few more of the pieces that caught my eye. Well, you must admit that the thing above would catch anyone's attention. It is a stoneware glass lamp by Elizabeth Gardner called "There is more here than meets the eye." What a fun piece and I can just imagine the type of modern design home it would look fabulous in.

This is a felted wool piece called "Two Tall Pines" by Shauna Lyman. I find I am often drawn to the soft vague images of this art form, but have no desire to try it myself.

Finally, this was the talk of the exhibit - a grandmother's rendering of Garden Flowers, done during the Great Depression when there was no money for art supplies. That didn't stop Perina Wiley from making art though. She had crayons and she had brown paper bags, so that is what she used. Have to remember that the next time I want to complain about being short on funds for art supplies.

Love the flowers and the trees, not sure about the lamp though. I can appreciate the art but I wouldn't want to live with it. lol
