My go-to hand beater from Weaving Southwest

Weavers use a lot of tools. I once had someone tell me, after seeing my studio, that “You have a lot of cool tools!” We all use them in different ways, some of us use tools that others don’t and vice versa. This brings me to a very interesting idea:image

The Tool at Hand brings together artworks resulting from an unusual and slightly eccentric experiment. Last spring the Chipstone Foundation invited fourteen contemporary artists to break from their usual practice and make a work of art with one tool alone. This exhibition presents these works, and the tools used to craft them, together with short, explanatory videos produced by each artist. This exhibit is at the Milwaukee Art Museum. And again, I wish there were more images of the works.
