Brewery Art Walk 2018 Part 4 Glass Ceramics and Carafes
I am kind of having fun with this exploration of the Brewery. My brain is finding fun ways to group the artists in different articles. There are overlaps and what some may see as odd pairings, but there is so much to see at the Brewery that to put it all in one article would not be feasible and tedious, but for me and the reader.
Art does not just hang on a wall, some art is more three dimensional and utilitarian. Skyler Bolton for example creates ceramics, nugs, bowls, bottles, cups and plates. He also teaches people how to make their own.
Mother Daughter Pauli Carroll and Carina King make art to dine with out of glass with a native flair. In fact they create their art under the brand California Native Glass. If you like genuine native american art and the style of the south west with beautiful summer colors, then check out their work.
One space at the brewery, though not exclusive, serves as both as a studio for artist and a professional rental space. The gallery itself is a work of crafted art with a style that is industrial, steam punk, urban, and futuristic. It is called Dystopian studios.
The studio is designed in such a way that the space is unique. Even the appliances and cabinets have been worked over to be unique.
In addition the space serves as the base for artist event planner Kevin Flint who has not only founded the studio, but also creates his own brand of functional art in the form or carafes and liquid dispensers, wall sculptures, and architectural designs.
Finally for this part of the adventure, a space called Ashira Siegel Fox’s Factory during the Brewery Art Walk hosted a group called Mothers Market Gallery, a loose collective of parents who are artist. All work in multimedia and in particular sculpture. Ashira Siegel Fox is the “curator” of the space and works with multimedia works incorporating wood, resin, painting, and sewing paper.
The other artists with Mothers Market include Alia Ollikainen Joslin and Jacqueline Bell Johnson, not exclusively. Apparently there was also an illustrator, Sarah Kupersmith, but I missed her. Alia who uses the moniker “For the love of Alia” on etsy, makes ceramic and mixed media works. She particularly seems to enjoy cat motifs.
Johnson makes sculpture, digital photography, and joint installations.
