Pinterest and Culture Front

Written May 31, 2013

I’ve joined Pinterest after seeing the fun my friends have on it. You can find my page and boards here:

So many images and ideas inspire me when I’m looking through art and design webpages. Since I live in an isolated area of Wyoming this is how I feed my hunger for seeing art. I’m so far away from big museums and super new ideas. However, Meg Daly in Jackson Hole runs a great art blog about this area called Culture Front. She seeks to bring attention to what it means to be an artist in the American West today:

Sadly,┬áCulture Front is┬áno longer online but you can find Meg Daly’s writing on many pages online.

Alissa Davies Sculpture and Painting

Written November 19, 2012

Small sculpture and paintings by Jackson Hole artist, Alissa Davies, are now in the shop.  Stop in and see them, they are awesome!  She used a variety of materials: wire, fabric, paper clay, acrylic paint.

She has used a lot of pod forms inspired by her childhood in and a recent visit to Maine’s seaside. Photos, left: mix, center: “Sea Objects #2” , right: closeup of “Breaking Out”

This cool piece, “Installation”, is a grouping of delicate fabric and wire pods and tubes.

This 2-painting series is acrylic paint and pencil on canvas and echos the forms of her sculptures. “Reproduction #1, #2”
