By Hand Gallery is a cooperative. In addition to thirteen artist members, the gallery represents more than 60 local and regional artists. It is these consigning artists that the gallery wishes to honor in ‘Still Crazy After All These Years’ I and II. Through the long and difficult pandemic, these artists continued to find a way to create, finding in that creation a way to stay connected to both the suffering world at-large and to themselves. We salute them!
The first exhibition in the series will feature a diversity of work. The work will include that of painters Dawn Adams, Tom Rhea, and Joanne Shank; textile artists Lynne Mikolon, Janet Helber, Bob Wolanin, and Martina Celerin; photographers Randy Shed, Carol Koetke, and Sharon Bussert; woodworker Steve Rapp; and sculptor Bert Gilbert. There will be an opening reception from 5-8pm on the opening Friday the 6th.
