STUDIO Gallery, local color from local artists – Voodoo Dolls
The George Bush Voodoo Dolls
Wednesday, October 12th – Sunday, October 30th
Reception: Saturday, October 15th, 5 – 8 pm
Berkeley artist Bobbie Pires has been at work for months on a series of George Bush voodoo dolls, and the time has come for them to come out into the world and be seen. Each handsewn doll is carefully placed in his own little world: “Church and State,” for example, features a white voodoo doll in the White House that’s morphing into a church. Four of her large mixed media pieces will be on display, as well as several smaller boxes, each with their own voodoo doll and pointy objects. She combines elements of collage, sewing, claywork, weaving, and painting in her work. Bobbie’s pieces are powerful comments on the current political situation, and beautiful art objects on their own. Also showing will be “Oh, Say Can You See…” by Jane Woolverton: an amazing American flag made of recycled six-pack holders. The gallery will donate 10% of sales from the show to hurricane relief.
