WHAT'S NEXT ?????
New art will be up in the restaurant beginning tuesday november 6. The artists are Alexis Dodd & Shawn Maschino. Here is their statement: Alexis Dodd & Shawn Maschino , of Circle Square studios, and creators of the " VIP Booth" table in Lightnin Salvage, display new work through November. This show features a process we have been developing over the last year,using scrap wood from larger production jobs to create art work. Creating designs and patterns with the wood , that we then encase in epoxy. The epoxy is stained or dyed with spices ( i.e. smoked paprika, cumin, curry, and old bay ) in order to create a more organic color palette. You may be familiar with the bar top that they created for the Top restaurant as well as Big Lou's with this process. Long term artists and contributors to the community, Alexis and Shawn have recently been trying to fortify Circle Square ( 108 S.W. 6th St.) as an artistic and functional object production facility to serve the community.
