"Western Futurism by Jimmy Descant"
June 6 - Sept. 13, 2015
When Jimmy Descant started professionally creating assemblage art in 1996, he saw his lifelong appreciation of the beautiful utilitarian parts from the Golden Age of American manufacturing transform into visions of what they could be, once rearranged... never having heard the term 'ready made' from Duchamp, or seen Picasso's early assemblages. The rocket ships Jimmy has created in the Western Futurism represent the peaceful exploration of time, space, ideas, and cultures.
"Pueblo Boy | A Process of Discovery" by Kelton Osborn
June 6 - Sept 13, 2015
Early in life, Kelton had a penchant for discovering how things worked and were put together. Instead of a linear process, Kelton works in a spiral that allows influences from multiple sources to interact with each other. The result is one that was not conceived prior to starting. An intuitive approach allows him the opportunity to explore ideas without physical limitations. Says Kelton, "My childhood memories inform my designs. Whether playing in the prairies with friends, catching lizards and snakes, or backpacking in the mountains with my parents – I have always enjoyed the process of exploration."
