Sidestreet Arts showcases the ceramic sculpture of Kendall Jones and Katherine McDowell’s monotype prints for the month of November and you are invited to come see for yourself .
Jones’ textured sculptures beckon you to ask… “what’s your story?” Often, there is the slightest hint of whimsy that draws a smile, as in Hermanas, pictured here. Three young ladies in their polka-dotted dresses and pig-tailed hair hug each other while gazing directly at the viewer, appearing to be sharing some kind of special event, a play or party, perhaps, or a secret. Their identical attire, hair color and makeup suggests they are striking a pose, perhaps for a photo.
Visual artist McDowell is focused on montotype printing. Bright saturated colors streak each large scale print in her Lake Monotype series. The colors on the paper are like a sunset over the horizon; they bleed into one another, vivid and visually arresting. Textures present themselves, luring the eye into the greater depths of the paper.
