Exhibition will be installed Oct 29-Nov 2nd.
In November we are proud to present a collaborative show between husband and wife Scott Jensen and Courtney Lipson (Non Indigenous/Adopted Tlingit). Those who have followed the gallery over the last few years cannot have missed their wondrous collaborative micro-mosaic masks, a form they have pioneered. The two have taken all of 2017 to create the body of work for this exhibition, and we are amazed at their skill, technique, creativity and fortitude. This exhibition will include sculpture with micro-mosaic inlay, weaving, and jewelry. A print exhibition catalog will be available beginning on opening night.
Special Offer on Select Thomas Stream Original Paintings
Stonington Gallery has proudly represented the paintings of contemporary Aleut painter Thomas Stream for thirty-five years. Our exhibit schedule and storage capacity is such that not all his wonderful works can be on display at once, and we want them to be in homes where they will be treasured as they deserve! Therefore, we are offering a select collection of original framed paintings from past years at a rare discounted price: 20% off the framing and an additional 20% off the painting.
Stream’s bright palette and the curvilinear, geometric designs in his painting are very much inspired by the traditional painted steam-bent hats made and worn by the Aleut hunters at sea in their kayaks. These hats are to Stream what the spindle whorl is today’s Coast Salish artists: the object that represents the very core or spirit of their people. It is an object so specific to the industry and thus survival of the culture, that it at once sums up the accumulated knowledge of a people and their mastery of the skills required to flourish in a specific environment.
