“Will Build to Suit” Exhibition

What a fun opening.  It is great to be part of an exhibition of kindred spirits: Joan Painter Jones, Karen Gallup, Mike Sivak, Julie Renfroe, Paula Doe, Alvey Jones and  Cre Fuller.  Frequently my work seems to be isolated  in exhibitions that are primarily composed of paintings and drawings.   Walking around this show I could almost hear these pieces talking to each other.  The Riverside’s ample exhibition space also adds to the pleasure of viewing this work.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.
