Most masks are made to conceal; these ones are not.
The idea for the exhibit came about after Shannon Goose, Pacific Northwest-based artist, poet and explorer of spiritual psychology, taught a mask-making class to the group, according to a news release from Artisans at the Dahmen Barn. The masks were fashioned from a variety of mediums, including metal, paper mache, found objects and ceramic. Mask-themed two-dimensional art will also be exhibited.
Participating artists include Sue Benier, Jane Estocin-Klaiber, Jeanne Wood, Katherine Clancy, Shannon Goose, Martha McIver, Mary Jo Hamilton, Danica Wixom, Joan McDougall, Melanie Siebe, Valerie Boydo, Gerri Sayler, Susan Baily Weaver, Carolyn Guy and Jennifer Rod.
