Third Friday in the Cameron Gallery

September 21 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Family Tree by Jeannette Broussart
Most of us are descendants of many generations of makers. Unfortunately, those hand craft skills are being lost to commercial, ready-to-consume machined goods. “Family Tree” is a nod to the historical tradition of hand crafting and personal remembrances of mosaic artist Jeannette Broussart’s Grandfather. The works, or unique assemblies, are a combination of traditional mosaics and reclaimed wooden materials from her late Grandfather’s workshop using skills and traditions both inherited and reimagined.

“My Grandfather, Chuck, was a woodworker for most of his life. This was not his career, rather his favorite pastime, hobby, and practiced, chosen skillset. In his retirement years, he continued to wake at 6 am, eat breakfast, and head out to his garage workspace to “make his daily quota of sawdust”. He made hundreds of individual patterns for his wooden creations, many from the very trees he felled on his farm land, hand planed, and cured for years,” stated Jeannette. A portion of sales will be donated to Santa Pals, the folks who distributed hundreds of her Grandfather’s toys to needy children.
