SDA Conference 2013 Gallery Hop: Part 1

I'm still in the process of organizing all the photos I took at the SDA Conference in San Antonio, TX.  I finished up the photos from the 6 galleries that we visited on the first day. I'm going to start with some of those photos first in a series of blog posts this week. Some of the artwork are missing their titles. All of the artists and gallery owners allowed us to photograph the artwork, which was a rare treat.

The first gallery stop was at Gallery Nord featuring the artwork of Eun-Kyung Suh , Kathryn Clark, Maria Shell and Nathalie Miebach. 

Eun-Kyung Suh created what she calls a series of sculptural vessels as a metaphor for individual, family or social memory and history. These vessels are inspired by Bojagi, a traditional Korean art form.

Nathalie Miebach looks at the interaction of meteorological and oceanic systems in the Gulf of Maine for her "Changing Waters" series.

Maria Shell's series "Color Grids" is her exploration of simple grid pattern. In my opinion, her pieces are far from simple.

Kathryn Clark's foreclosure quilts were a very emotional part of this exhibit. She started this series in early 2000's.
