'I Never Played With Dolls'
Please note, this event has expired.
Local encaustic artist and Bemis School of Art instructor Sheary Clough Suiter’s new body of work, “I Never Played With Dolls,” combines encaustic medium with everything from vintage linens to road-side and thrift-store finds, and of course, dolls.
For the past year, Sheary Clough Suiter indulged in relentless studio-time play to create this completely new body of work. No ideas were considered too wacky or politically incorrect.
After a quarter century of making pretty paintings, the artist wanted to make art with guts.
Incorporating text and images both disturbing and surprising, the artist’s personal allegiances are revealed through work that raises questions about historical and social biases that shape our thinking and dictate personal identity.
Interact with a living doll during the opening reception!
During the artist Q&A, enjoy an intimate hour of discussion with the artist.
