From the artist, Jeannette Brossart:

"This exhibit "Family Tree", is both a nod to the historical tradition of handi-crafts, and skills, as well as the natural wood material that my Grandfather loved. Most of the work is centered around family, tradition, value of handicrafts, and personal remembrances of my Grandfather and his life. The works are created with repurposed and reclaimed materials, from his workshop and my mosaic studio, with skills and traditions inherited and reimagined. A portion of sales will be donated to Santa Pals, the folks who distributed hundreds of my Grandpa's toys to needy children."

With two dimensional art, it’s common practice that pieces are hung undisturbed on gallery walls from the time an exhibit opens until the time it closes. What happens when an artist shatters that tradition and chooses instead to invite the viewer to take part in the intentional destruction of art? Anna Wallace will explore this idea - See more at: http://scrapexchange.org/cameron-gallery/#sthash.43LF5VHt.dpuf
