"The Maker's Eye"


The Maker’s Eye features works on loan from artist’s personal collections.


The homes of visual artists are often filled with artworks and interesting found materials, every surface a carefully considered display. The urge to collect appears to be deeply ingrained in makers of all types, making it easy to consider artists the most knowledgeable of collectors. They have a unique perspective that disregards monetary value and public praise. In addition, works are often acquired through trade, adding an extra layer of narrative and emotional weight. Both of these conditions result in significant, varied and delightful collections. The Maker’s Eye will present 1-3 artworks from each of the invited artist/collector’s personal collection to illuminate the aesthetic, influence and narrative that inspired each acquisition.
