Sherri Lynn Wood and M’Shinda Abdullah-Broaddus explore what it looks like to make a home for oneself
The exhibition ‘Home Makers’ in the downstairs gallery at Wave Pool pairs the work of two artists who come at the same idea from opposite perspectives: What does it look like to make a home for oneself—as an individual, and as part of a larger collective?
To unpack that question, recent Cincinnati transplant Sherri Lynn Wood’s ongoing community-based project “Sew LeWitt” invites gallery visitors to create their own sewn compositions into a larger community tapestry; while multi-disciplinary artist M’Shinda Abdullah-Broaddus will exhibit recent printed digital collages that document a performance during a recent residency at Richard Carter’s studio in Pope Valley, California.
At the same time there is a corresponding ‘Home Makers’ exhibition in Wave Pool’s upstairs space, featuring selections from Wave Pool’s woodshop program and The Welcome Project. Come see functional yet beautiful works created by folks at Wave Pool. Exhibited art includes ceramics made during the past year at The Welcome Project as well as coffee tables and other wooden objects crafted by participants in our community Wood Shop.
