This year for Christmas my Wife gave me 52 weekend adventures. Weekend One, we went to the Arboretum. It’s my most favorite place to go. I can just get lost and have adventures. We went to see the last day of the Trains exhibit. People who know me, know I’m goo-goo for trains. This Christmas Season’s exhibit was amazing. It gets better every year.
Week Two, we went to the Woodmere Art Museum. It was too cold to do the outside exhibits. So many amazing sculptures but we can see them in the spring. Inside is a cornucopia of local artists. The mediums range from performance pieces to landscapes in oil and pen & ink.
This sculpture’s facial expression left me chuckling. Yes, it is a beautiful marble piece but the artist nailed the fine points of her being embarrassed she’s lost her clothes. Maybe that’s just how I saw it. The finer etchings of her toes and the tree stump behind her is amazing.
I’m a huge fan of landscapes. It doesn’t matter if it’s paint or ink. I’ve even seen amazing pieces done in metals. The sculpture intrigued me because the proportions of the figure were real. Women have curves, js.
This piece reminded me of Florence Foster Jenkins.
This is just a segment of a very large canvass. It covered an entire wall. It was mostly these two people in the entire piece that captivated me. His face seems old to me and her face is intense like that of protection.
These two were from the painting that spoke most to me. I’m obsessed with my dogs so of course I liked this one a lot, lol. She looks sad and the dog stoic. But when you look at the painting as a whole it appears to be different.
Art is amazing. I love it because it is subjective. What was the intent of the Artist may not be the read of the voyeur, amazing! It was a great week Two!
