and guests

This curated art exhibit includes photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media created by construction workers, all in their sixties, who have spent most of their lives working in the trades and making art. Some went to art school and others are self-taught. By necessity and choice, they have supported their families and their art by working as carpenters, painters, electricians, cabinet makers, contractors and construction managers.

None of the artists would call their art-making a hobby. Nor do they see the visual explorations of their individual worlds as limited or defined in any way by their physical labor. Both require skill and creativity, but one has a predetermined end and the other remains open-ended. They are grateful for the opportunity to share their explorations with you.
