Arlene and I went to the SOFA (Sculpture Objects and Functional Art) exhibition this afternoon in Santa Fe. I was so impressed by the high quality of work. There were many pieces that I would have gladly taken home with me had we not been saving up to replace the roof on our house! I particularly loved Jan Hopkins' pieces using lunaria pods, hydrangea pedals, yellow cedar bark, waxed linen and paper. Exquisitely crafted and so original. Also very much enjoyed seeing Geoffrey Gorman's wonderfully innovative and humourous sculptures of animals using found objects, wire and cloth.
