TOTEMS • Art by Derek Schaper + Live Music

Join us in our mission to support local art and artists at the MindSpace Collective Gallery. Featuring original exhibitions by local artists in Gainesville and neighboring communities. New exhibits open every two months! **This Gallery runs on proceeds + donations - Thank You!**

 

We are beyond excited to share our newest exhibit, TOTEMS, featuring breathtaking masks completely conceptualized and handmade by artist Derek Shaper of Valdosta, GA.

∆• to-tem /ˈtōdəm/: a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol that serves as an emblem of a group of people, such as a family, clan, lineage, or tribe •∆

"I started on this current body of work almost a year ago, after making a wearable mask for Halloween using cardboard, paint and some found materials. I really enjoyed creating that mask so I continued with the theme and ended up arriving at Totems because these pieces all feel like different sort of spirit beings to me - each with it's own personality and mix of characteristics drawn from a variety of different animals and creatures, real and imaginary. Making and building these Totems has been a lot of fun, starting with some geometric shapes formed from wood, cardboard, felt and foam and allowing each one to reveal it's personality layer by layer. Rarely starting with a reference sketch or plan, each Totem comes to life organically through the materials and colors used. I plan to continue making more of these spirit animals, using a variety of different materials and experimenting with larger formats. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed creating them."

-Derek Schaper (Artist)

Hand Embroidery + Fiber Art - Hosted by Rebecca Butler

An Exploration in Hand Embroidery & Fiber Art: Stitches, Threads, Fabrics, Material and the Alabama Chanin Method

This workshop will be a great opportunity for beginners and advanced students alike. The main focus will be on learning key stitches for any hand-sewer, either following a pattern chosen or created by the students. What makes this class exciting is that it will also provide instruction, opportunities and materials to create and tweak your piece with nontraditional materials—like sewing with bamboo or velvet thread, filament silk, or adding contrasting fabric, from denim or chiffon.

The class will include all materials needed for creating an embroidery piece from start to finish and each student will be able to take home their projects and materials to further work on their piece.
