ParadigmINSPIRED: ART QUILTS
Paradigm
Most members of Paradigm art quilt group are professional artists based in southeast Michigan who create work, teach and lecture. Although most of their artwork is textile based, members use many different techniques. The theme of this exhibit is Inspired, and the art quilts on display incorporate elements of assemblage, collage and painting. The exhibit showcases the round robin approach that guided the creation of the work: the first artist made something which inspired the work of the second artist, which inspired the work of the third artist, and so on. A brief statement about the inspiration is included with each piece.

Herb BabcockIMAGE VESSELS: BLOWN GLASS
Herb Babcock
Sculptor Herb Babcock creates both monumental and human-scale work using metal, glass and stone. In the early years of the American Studio Glass Movement (1974-1984) Babcock’s sculptural and painterly expression utilized the vessel format. By layering color — both mass and line — between gathers of clear, molten glass, the full compositions are viewed through the vessel as three-dimensional. Babcock is Professor Emeritus, College for Creative Studies. He was Section Chair of the Glass Department where he taught for 40 years. He lives in Ann Arbor and built a new studio near U-M north campus in 2016.

Gregg ChadwickMYSTERY TRAIN: OIL ON LINEN
Gregg Chadwick

Gregg Chadwick grew up with the rails of America in his blood. His grandfather Arthur Desch stoked coal in steam engines before becoming a train engineer on the Jersey Central Line. At family gatherings in Chadwick’s grandparent’s home, his aunts and cousins played music to the rhythms of the trains outside. From Junior Parker, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash, to arts writers and directors Greil Marcus and Jim Jarmusch, the enduring mythos of America and its legacy has been wrapped up in the blues notes of the song “Mystery Train”. Chadwick’s current series of paintings, Mystery Train, is steeped in the powerful echoes of those machine days.

Sharon WillIMPRESSIONS IN PASTEL
Sharon Will

Sharon Will’s commitment to painting is to capture the simple, everyday beauty around her in her native Michigan and beyond. She is passionate about painting plein air (outdoors) whenever possible, as she feels the direct observation from life is the best teacher to truly see the subtleties of light and color in nature. Working on sanded paper, her process begins with a pastel and alcohol/mineral spirits under-painting wash to establish value and color. Soft pastel is applied in layers, often in contrasting color and temperatures for vibrancy. Over her 35-year career in painting, Will has won numerous national awards. She also operates a custom framing business from her home/studio in Washington Township and teaches occasional workshops.
