'Sacred Containment' At Brookfield Craft Center
âSacred Containmentâ At Brookfield Craft Center
BROOKFIELD â âSacred Containment: Vessels, Nests and Sheltersâ is on view in The Lynn Tendler Bignell Gallery at Brookfield Craft Center and will be open daily through March 8.
The curator of the show is Miani Carnevale, a noted mixed-media artist who lives in Clinton Corners, N.Y.
âVessels, nests and shelters can carry, hold, enclose, embrace, cradle, shelter and protect,â said Ms Carnevale. Using both earth-born and contemporary materials, the artists represented in this exhibit have crafted 21st Century art forms intended to elevate, celebrate and make sacred, the vessel form. Each artist has also included a personal narrative about their sacred containment to create additional depth, texture and intimacy to the show.
âThe inspiration for âSacred Containmentsâ originated from my love of and passion for the vessel form. In my experience all life is either holding or being held; inextricably linked, connected and, entwined,â said Ms Carnevale, whose work is included in the exhibition.
The participating artists are Barbara Allen, Corey Anderson, Nancy Moore-Bess, Valarie Dearing, Helen Dunkerley, Suzy Goodelman, Pat Hickman, Kristin Muller, Jo Stealey, Missy Stevens, Teresa Genovese and Tommy Simpson.
The Lynn Tendler Bignell Gallery is located within Brookfield Craft Centerâs historic mill building at 286 Whisconier Road (Route 25), just east of the four corners intersection with Routes 7/202.
