MICHAEL BAUERMEISTER:Opening Reception
Thursday October 20th
Show runs October 20-November 27, 2016
Michael Bauermeister has exhibited in museums across the United States and is included in numerous permanent collections, including the Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI, the Smithsonian Museum, Renwick Gallery, Washington D.C., the Mesa Museum of Contemporary Art, Mesa AZ, and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA. In 2014, Michael Bauermeister was invited to be the Artist in Residence at the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona, where he became inspired by colors and textures of the Western landscape.
“Michael Bauermeister’s wood sculptures capture the wonders of the natural world he loves: pebbles on the shore, a twist of vines, that first exuberant burst of growth in spring. Waves of grain, ripples on the water, and canopies of leafy tree branches come to life on the soulful surfaces of his carved vessels and wall panels and seem almost to move if you gaze long enough. Their rich colors range from forest greens and the deep browns of fertile soil to orangey golds and yellows so citrusy you can practically taste them.”

L’Andrae’ Bradley: Opening Reception
It Looks Like It’s Open 13 E. Tulane
Friday October 21st
6:30- 10:00 p.m.
L’Andrae’ Bradley will show new work on Friday 6:30-10:00pm and will lead a “Meditative Art Doodle (MAD)” workshop on the creative process on Sunday, 1:30-3:30 (see below).
L’Andrae’s work emerges from the imagination and from his practice of mindfulness in the Shambhala tradition. This work colorfully explores the inevitability of death and the sacred quality of the ordinary.
L’Andrae’ says, “My work has always been about the evolution of doodling and applying the awareness of the action itself into a work of art. It’s a style that I’ve been doing and re-discovering for over 15 years. My most recent work I created with Prismacolor Markers and Micron Pens. This body of work, I have incorporated various colors, and patterns, of the ups & downs of life-along with my personal practice of daily meditation.
I personally feel the work I have now been creating has been more than just the concept of doodling, but also a personal form of meditation as well.”
Prints, t-shirts, etc. of his work can also be found at: https://society6.com/goodearthtreasure
