November: Log Cabin Center for the Arts

“From Earth to Art”
A Group Show

Artist Statement:
Artists share their creations that begin with materials from the earth: reeds, clay, wood, and foliage. The artists transform these earthy elements into baskets, pottery, wood carvings, and paper pulp art.

Featured in the front lobby display case is an extensive collection of hand-crafted baskets, woodworking, and pottery. This exhibit comes from the hearts, hands and studios of the teachers and students from the Log Cabin Art Center.

Featured on the gallery walls is the handmade paper art of Marilyn VandenBout. Marilyn makes handmade paper from recycled pulp and adds cotton linter fibers for strength, and botanical fibers for texture. Many of her images are dried and pressed leaves and flower petals that are incorporated into the paper itself with fibers. Some pieces are pulp paintings, and others are created with water colors or graphite. The artist also makes paper weavings with her handmade papers, often adding printed paper or choral sheet music.

Visit the basketry, woodwork and pottery exhibit during the months of November and December in the front lobby entrance of the library.
