“The End” with Small Craft Advisory Press

by Ellen Mueller on March 31, 2023, no comments

Here’s a collaborative project with Small Craft Advisory Press that has been YEARS in the making (we started in 2017!) Denise Bookwalter mailed this art book (run of 50) to me earlier this fall, and I didn’t get a chance to open it until now, due to a recent move.

This book, in the form of a giant folded and printed Mobius Strip (more still pics here), is based on 2 days we spent gathering individual views on the end of the world, both on a global and a personal scale. Imagery was taken both from our experience walking through various locations in Tallahassee, FL (interactions with people, angry geese, etc.) and through online participation (icons related to alarm, crowds, etc.).

Thanks collaborative performers: Denise Bookwalter, AB Gorham, and Kevin Curry – it turned out beautifully!

I’m delighted to share Leisure Tests is now on view at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport at Terminal 1 Gate C1. The series will be on view through Feb. 1, 2024, so next time you’re at the airport, snap a shot of the installation and send it to me! There’s further information about the work on their website too.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

I visited this past August and found my work on the first floor – all the works are tucked into spaces you might not expect to find art in museum.

Walk With Us at Rochester Art Center has been extended to March 19, 2023! That gives you a few more months to catch this excellent exhibition featuring the work of 15 artists from both locally and around the globe.
