Tara Gilchrist & Caitlin Hutt
Tara Gilchrist and her wife Caitlin Hutt have returned from Ontario to Elsewhere for October and November. As a production potter, Tara is preparing for a busy December of shows. She believes that creating outside her home studio stimulates greater exploration. These two months will be spent exploring with new forms of decoration.
My shutter-clicking finger is calloused and stained a Concord Grape purple. My Photoshop-mouse-rolling fingers smell of garlic. Thus far my Elsewhere experience is following the harvest and seasons. Oh, and my MAC computer is jealous of grandma’s Presto pressure-cooker!
I plan to work on both functional and sculptural work at my time here at Elsewhere. My sculpture has evolved and morphed from only animals to animal/human hybrids, incorporating human components. Combining animal and human features exposes the connections between humans and non-humans. My functional work is very simple and geometric. The simple structures and shapes with a nature inspired color spectrum allow the viewers to focus solely on the function and clean design of the ceramic ware.
Jake Minter will be screening a video excerpt from Gaybraham Lincoln: The Musical, which recently received the Best Score award and a nomination for Best Show at the Thespis Festival, Off-Broadway. It is not appropriate for children, but Jake encourages you to let them watch it anyway.
