LEON NIEHUES, BASKETS: BEYOND FUNCTION
JAY MCDONALD, BOTANICALS: UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

SUNDAY SALON ARTIST TALK: OCTOBER 22ND 1pm - 3pm
Leon Niehues spent his artistic career on a 40 acre plot of land in the Arkansas Ozarks with the hardwoods of his craft available to harvest just outside his studio. The utilitarian baskets he made have evolved into forms that give homage to the materials, emphasizing sculptural aesthetics and elements of design that live for their own sake. His baskets surpass functionality, holding the viewer in the realm of art as beauty.

Jay says about his work, “The Plant Kingdom throughout art history has supplied endless subject matter for the artist. Through the visual arts, poetry and song, botanicals have been an integral part of our adoration of the beautiful.
