SAGA support will help fund the creation of new artworks and supplement costs associated with studio operations, transportation, and installation of the artwork for the exhibition.
Inspiration is often the result of attending an art exhibition. Monoliths of Memory is a two-person art exhibition, lecture, and gallery talk scheduled for January 3–February 9, 2018, at Spokane Falls Community College Fine Arts Gallery. Through research and investigation of form and material, ceramic sculptor Tybre Newcomer and mixed-media sculptor Cozette Phillips will reflect on the influence of man-made materials within natural environments.
We will engage and impact the local community by providing a lecture and gallery talk to accompany our exhibition of artwork. All events surrounding the exhibition will be free and open to the public and will serve people of all ages, races, and physical abilities. Providing an event that is accessible to a diverse population creates an opportunity for connectivity and builds a foundation for new friendships.
Thanks to SAGA, the artists will be able to pursue the creation of new artworks and supplement costs associated with studio operations, transportation, and installation of the artwork for the exhibition. Clay, metal, and plastics will comprise the primary artistic mediums utilized in the artworks displayed.
The vehicle for artistic research and technical explorations of form are the tangible art materials that inherently hold memory and respond to the artist touch
With SAGA funds, these materials will be purchased from local Washington/Spokane businesses and manufacturers to better serve the local economy.
