Foundling

Fri Jun 16, 2006 Miss Vicky 

We're off tonight to check out the opening of the lastest Cube show, Foundling. Found objects.... can't wait!.

Update: The show met and exceeded expectations. As one would expect with art incorporating found objects, there was a lot of metal in the room. Alison Smith-Welsh's sculptures were fabulous (although we still like our piece, "Biscuits", the best). I mean, who wouldn't like a metal bustier or boot made out of of various tins, cans and lunchboxes? Gordon Wallace's creations (for me anyway), unite the strength of the metal he uses with the beauty and wonder of the natural world. fabricawakuwaku's pieces took the theme of "foundling" and ran with it - from the creatures fashioned from fabric remnants to the portrait of a foundling reflecting upon his ancestry. Clare Brennan's stuff is just, well, cool. And Alanna Baird's fishy creations must be seen.

Don't miss this show! And bring the kids to the kids' art talk on July 2 - I'm betting that will be a fascinating discussion.
