A Flock of Siegers!
Exhibition Runtime: May 11 - June 29, 2019
Opening Reception and Concert: Saturday, May 11, 7pm to 10 pm
All of the art in this gallery was made by members' of the Sieger family. If you are born into or even just fall in love with a Sieger, you probably are at least one of the following:
A chronic, incurable doodler
Someone who uses rulers and mechanical pencils on a daily basis
"Sorry, I have band practice later"
The oldest thing in the show is probably Great-Grandpa Alois Sr. 's figurine of a shoe shine professional, was made from materials gathered in the memorial stone workshop where he was employed, oh, about a hundred years ago or so. It's either that or Great- Grandma's Crandall's embroidery. Grandma Thressa Crandall is the sweet-faced Danish lady with her ankle-length white hair in a braid who is depicted twice in this exhibit.
Though there isn't a piece by her, Martha Sieger was the mother of six of the artists featured. Mart was a hat seller and a seamstress on the side who raised her seven children mostly all by herself. It wasn't always easy for her to make ends meet, but despite that she always encouraged her kid's creative pursuits. And that made all the difference the rest of us are all creative children of Martha's creative children.
Welcome to the flock!
