'Warp Weighted Loom (2016)' by Janis Stemmermann on view at Russell Janis 

As 2016 comes to a close, I would like to take the time to thank and also highlight those artists + designers who generously shared their work and creative studio time with me during the past year. 

In an era where 'sharing' is often fueled by the instant gratification of social media tools, it has been fortifying and truly energizing for me to make direct contact with individuals whose work I admire and whose projects I feel are vital to the art + environment + materials dialogue.

Even though there are many others who have helped to shape my artistic thinking during 2016, I offer this sampling in gratitude for the hard work and devotion to unique fabrication methods sustained by these unique creatives.

detail of Correspondence Course exchange with Abigail Doan + Brece Honeycutt

“Founded on the ideas of collaboration among artists, Norte Maar is always excited to learn about independent projects that take form when two or more artists create, respond and explore the world together. One such project, initiated during the Autumn of 2015, features artists Abigail Doan (@lostinfiber) and Brece Honeycutt (@onacolonialfarm) who began a parallel process of collecting, diagramming, and altering select materials in an urban to rural dialogue intended to examine modern and historic connections in their daily lives. The results of this dialogue have evolved into #CorrespondenceCourse: a collaborative, materials exchange project between artists Abigail Doan and Brece Honeycutt.”

Thank you, Norte Maar, for this kind feature on #CorrespondenceCourse, an urban to rural dialogue with artist friend, Brece Honeycutt.
