“Perhaps the simplest, yet most appropriate, distinction would be that an artifact is primarily the product of craftsmanship and skill, while a work of art is invested with an emotional, philosophical, spiritual, or esthetic quality that reaches beyond. It has an ambiguous something that is not always easy to define, perhaps a special element that elevates it from the realm of workmanship to a more significant level.” -David L. Shirey
Sculptors Rob McKirdie, Tybre Newcomer, and Cozette Phillips present a collection of work that reflects on their past explorations and how materials preserve and shape perception. This exhibition showcases each of their distinctive artmaking practices and investigates the intersection between object and artifact.
