BEHOLD THE ARTIST

BEHOLD THE ARTIST

A funny thing happened at the Gallery@CityHall today.

Check here on Monday afternoon 11/6/2017 for a story about the most popular work of art  in the gallery as demonstrated by a dozen or so Master Docents from The Phoenix Art Museum.

And then there was an impromptu interview with the artist,

That was a funny story as well.

And two lessons in Chemistry as a PhD Chemist and yet another with similar credentials.

Yes, the chemists were interested in this artist.

Monday.

In the Nineties I moved Lee Broom Gallery and Design to North Scottsdale.

By the year 2000 our business had grown to include the Tri-City area as well as Surprise and Sun City.

In order to cope with the demand for on site presentations we dropped our high rent showroom and replaced it with a large work-room/warehouse space near my home office in Arcadia.

Today,  I or a Lee Broom Design Affiliate  will arrive at your home or office with designer tools and an eye for continuity.

We plan wall spaces, design original pieces of furniture and when appropriate, carry an inventory of original, signed and numbered works of paper borne art.

Our first scream is an involuntary response to the first gasp. It occurs at the moment of our first sensation of fear; our first decision, our first affirmation and our initial attempt at managing our place in this new world.

This first noisy protest is interrupted with cradled arms and soft, cooing Mommy Words, which lend a hint that this dangerous world into which we have been thrust has an oasis of safety; ours for the price of a scream.

The calming voice, the gentle words are familiar to the newly initiated. The touch of Mother’s hands are a new sensation but it too is somehow, known.

Our first scientific experiment has begun.

This is our first experience at asking for and receiving Love, a sensation which will in future decades become confused with Approval.

Our  experiments will become more sophisticated if not necessarily objective; life and the events that greet us will be measured, examined, dissected and reassembled as we seek to secure Maximum Safety.

Life may be more difficult for those of us who have missed the touching and the softly spoken words of gentle parenting. Perhaps we ask for help.

Later, in the language of Mommy Words we may even ask another, untouched soul “May I lend a hand?”

And a Spark of The Spirit ignites the flame of LOVE.

BETTY POWERS, SCULPTOR. (MEDIUM: GOURD, LEAF & LACQUER) continued.

September 17: 2015
The designer, the artist, the sculptor Betty Powers had this to say about her work, ” There is a bit of glare but, you will get the idea”.

Perhaps she will share more of her work. And perhaps she will have more to say.

I have watched Betty Powers grow from an enthusiastic craftsman into a talented Sculptor over a period of perhaps twenty years or so.

Watching her career develop has been inspiring.

 

7/7/2017
Betty had this to say: “It was inspired”.  I would add that this is true with all her work. I once said that I had watched her grow from craftsman to artist.  That was unfair and untrue.  There is the hand of the Craftsman and the soul of the Artist in every creation. Whether made by God or mankind, all is inspired.
