The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker? Well, not quite. This time at handworks, it’s the potter, the painter, the mixed media maker.
Hot on the heels of their success at the Fall Art Show and Sale, artists Mike Randle (outsider art) and Sue McCarrell (mixed media) share an exhibit at Handworks Gallery.
McCarrell won first and third in the New Media category for “Moment in Time” and “Vintage Pleasure” (pictured) respectively. “Moment in Time” was also voted best in show as “Best Interpretation of the Theme”.
Randle tied for first place in the Abstract Painting category with “Number One Project”. Randle’s style can be described as “outsider” or “naive” art, or “art brut”. Once used specifically to describe artists who were often institutionalized and whose work remained undiscovered until their deaths, the terms are now used to describe any self-trained artists working outside the mainstream art world. They often feature unconventional ideas, elaborate fantasy worlds, and unusual juxtapositions and perspectives.
Potter Lucy Stoppler is the third featured artist in the Simple Requests exhibit.
