In the Construction Zone:
Mendocino County Assemblage Art
Spencer Brewer, Larry Fuente, Joan Giannecchini, Esther Siegel,
Susan Spencer, Denver Tuttle, and Michael Wilson
As the Grace Hudson Museum nears completion on several major interior and exterior remodelng projects, we celebrate construction with this group show featuring the
fascinating assemblage and constructed work of seven local artists. Using an astonishing
array of materials to create art that ranges from "three-dimensional collage" to optical
illusion, the artists incorporate puns, analytical thinking, storytelling, and political statement to create thought-provoking and visually dazzling works.

Days of Grace: California Artist Grace Hudson in Hawaii
NOW AT THE HONOLULU MUSEUM OF ART, Honolulu, Hawaii
Thursday, November 12, 2015–Sunday, March 6, 2016
Originally organized by the Grace Hudson Museum, Days of Grace travels to Honolulu to introduce new audiences to Grace Hudson and the Hawaiian work she produced during her transformative year in the Islands in 1901. Reconfigured to fit the space at the Honolulu Museum of Art, and to take advantage of its collections, the exhibit will focus on Grace, while a companion exhibit discusses other women artists active in Hawaii c. 1900-1950.
