November? What happened to September and October

It’s been a busy Autumn. Living in a college town it’s always surprising how the energy of this town is driven by the University Schedule, even if you aren’t a student or professor.

I’ve had the pleasure of exhibiting in several places throughout Michigan the past couple months. I had two pieces in the Figurative show at the Northville Arthouse.  One in a Menopause themed exhibit in at the Rivers Edge in Wyandotte.  It’s exciting that my piece “Menopause the Miracle” sold  before the Artist Reception.

Menopause: The Miracle

This Sunday AAWA has it’s first exhibit of the new season opening at Michigan Women’s Historical Museum.  Here are photos of my three pieces.  The theme is “Celebrating Women.”  The first image is a hommage to my mother, who managed to give her all to the most unglamorous tasks.  I learned early that any job worth doing is worth doing well.  I only hope to one day be as accomplished an artist as she was a cook.

About Babs

I consider myself a narrative artist, fascinated by the uniqueness of our human experience. Sculpture has enabled me to capture endless stories. I’m particularly seduced by the tangible qualities of Clay. Process and product are equally irresistible to me.

    I LOVE these pieces, and can’t believe I haven’t seen any of them in person! Congrats on the honorable mention in the Lansing show – you SO rock. 🙂

    It’s so touching to see your Mom’s picture, Barb. I never met her, but in an odd way any notion of a mother, – preferrably an older one – triggers this deep longing, need to hug my mamochka, talk to her and never part with her. Thank you for making these pieces, they are naked emotions (pardon the pun:)
