“Thinking of You” at Piper’s Tea & Coffee
Michael Terra (known locally for the Empty Bowls Project) is having a one man show, “Thinking of You”, at Pipers Tea & Coffee at the Coke Plant (next to The Mellow Mushroom).
Language is a slippery thing but it is our most portable toy. We carry it with us all day, every day, every where... and that’s the medium that Terra loves to work in. Many artists use famous quotes, song lyrics or bible passages in their work: Terra relies completely on his own creative writing to engage the viewers in an intimate landscape.
The sculptures in this show are all hanging on the wall. There will be some collages (in three dimensions) made of antique parts all sequestered in the ancient drawers of old sewing machines. There will be trompe l’oeil postcards, made of stoneware clay, with original intimate messages addressed to both your past and your future. There will be single text poem scrolls hanging vertically like paintings... All works in this show will be available for sale.
Give yourself a treat and take some time to wander through this landscape and read, imagine and remember.
