Home Show 2014: At the Table 
On view from May 2 – June 27, 2014

Creative Growth is pleased to announce At the Table, the 2014 Home Show featuring fresh work from over 50 artists. Celebrating the communal spirit of the studio environment, the shared table is integral to Creative Growth. The tables here are not only places where quilts are stitched, wood sawed, and ink splattered, but also where meals are shared and jokes are told, where real conversations are had.

Equally rooted in desire, nostalgia, and fantasy, Creative Growth artists’ fascination with food manifests in a number of exciting ways– from Aurie Ramirez’ mime-faced and winged mac ‘n’ cheese sandwich to Terri Bowden’s substantial ceramic “albino” fruit. See what’s for lunch in Kerry Damianakes’ bright, oil pastel meals, and check out the perfect feast depicted in Rosena Finister’s earth-tone quilt. The show’s expansive display of ceramics, wood sculpture, quilts, pillows, furniture, and more, reminds us of the way in which art and life intermix.

Also, don’t miss the exciting, emerging artwork from our expanded Youth Program. For the last year, these young artists have explored a gamut of subjects and styles as they hone their skills on sunny Saturday mornings.
