Vintage Roadside Show & Tell Embroidered Patches
individually wrapped embroidered patches
Alison has been making “street side” projects locally and nationally since 2004 under the rubric of the Roadside Show & Tell, a series of interactive roadside attractions and related projects created in the spirit of the 19th century American traveling show. In 2006, she traveled cross-country for eight months developing Looking for Lost America, a research project of the Roadside Show and Tell. This trip was the inspiration for Beautiful Possibility, her current traveling exhibition and research project that took her on a five-month tour to eight venues across northern United States and southern Canada. The Center for Cultural Innovation has supported the Beautiful Possibility project through a Planning Grant (2007), Implementation Grant (2008) and Artistic Innovation Grant (2010). Southern Exposure in San Francisco launched Beautiful Possibility with an exhibition and printed catalog in Spring 2010. www.alisonpebworth.com

Kelly Lynn Jones uses her studio as the infrastructure to document an evolving process of making, breaking down, remaking, and repeating. Her “work space” exists next to the “designated art space”. The distinction between her studio and a finished art piece has blurred, yet are still contingent on one another. The action of developing a new physical situation and having to negotiate a conversation between process, place and object is what Jones is attempting to attain. She uses her personal landscape mediated through found images on the internet, by remaking objects found in photos and isolates them within a three dimensional space and ultimately bringing them back to an image. This slippage between the semblances of the real, authorship, and personal vs. public are highlighted through her process of making. www.kellylynnjones.com
