Stupid Cupid and A Tale of Two Yodys
Joan of Art celebrated the coincidence of Valentine’s Day and the February Tremont Art Walk with Stupid Cupid at Doubting Thomas.
The large group show and party had dozens of art scene denizens riffing on wall plaques, occasionally nodding to love.
Ms. [of Art] Deveny clearly worked her well established connections to draw submissions by Smith and Lady, Scott Pickering, Douglas Max Utter, Scott Radke, Liz Maugans, Angelica Pozo, Dana Depew, and indeed many more.
The roster of artists, plus a playful atmosphere, red lights, and a chocolate fountain made for a classic Tremont event.
Meanwhile, over at Brandt Gallery, father and daughter Tom and Rebecca Yody both exhibited works for the wall.
Tom Yody’s assembled relief sculptures in wood and fabric are sometimes symmetrical, sometimes, not. Painted white, they have something in common with the sculpted plaster ornaments that sometimes adorn ceilings of grand houses, but with a more expressive and substantial language about their curves.
Rebecca’s wall sculptures work with the lines of twigs, and chicken wire, and other materials to show, or with their lines, create–harmony between man and nature.
