An art escape

While in Wisconsin at the retreat last week, Frieda, Laura and I ran out at the end of the presentation on day one for an art fix. We managed to get to the Racine Museum of Art one hour before closing and had just enough time to take a quick spin through the building and see everything.

I loved these little ceramic birds by Annette Corcoran.

I was really drawn to the colors and oil painted kitchy travel images in this wooden “Highway Quilt” by Lisa Krivacka.

I really liked these whimsical garden themed objects. The metal can of peas sculpture is by Roberta Williamson and the cool thorny tools made from anodized aluminum are by Laura Marth.

I have only seen Diane Itter’s work in books so it was really wonderful to see one up close.

    Mmmmm. Wonderful photos. Is the last piece woven?

  3. Yes terry, it is a small weaving with beautiful fine threads, maybe 12″- 14″ across?

  6. Love the ceramic birds! Thanks for posting that. I’m off to look for more.

  7. Only an hour? I can’t imagine you being able to spend only an hour in there! But some is better than none. Have more pix?

  8. Vicky, the RAM is not a very big museum, so it was not rushed. The exhibits overall were really good though, sorry but I only snapped a few pics.
