TIM LEWIS CATALOG " TIME MADE REAL" FOR STONE CARVER'S TRAVELING MUSEUM SHOW
This is a great opportunity to own the catalogue for the traveling museum show "Time Made Real: The (Stone) Carvings of Tim Lewis", especially if you were unable to get to one of the exhibition venues, which ran through December 2009. Loaded with images and showcasing the 60 powerful works of art in the premier exhibition at the Customs House Museum in Clarksville, TN, the catalogue is peppered with great photographs of Tim at work and with his family. It is also a scholarly work that stands on its own with entertaining and insightful essays by well known and long time folk art experts, collectors, writers and curators. These are Michael D. Hall, Lee Kogan, Ned Crouch, Dan Prince, Kathy Moses (that's me), and Frank Holt. The catalogue is an educational tool for those who are new to folk art and for sophisticated collectors as well. Bruce Shelton and I were guest co-curators of the show, in collaboration with the incomparable Ned Crouch and Michael Hall. The show traveled from Clarksville to the Columbus (Ohio) Museum of Art, the Mennello Museum of American Art (Orlando, FL), and the Kentucky Folk Art Center, Morehead State University, Morehead, KY. The catalogue leaves no doubt in anyone's mind that contemporary folk artist and stone carver Tim Lewis is a true twenty-first century talent. 63 pages. 8-1/2 x 11 inches. $20 + SHI.
