...an ongoing installation with ever-changing artworks/artists, at any non-given time, with no set duration.
The first incarnation embodies the artworks of twin sisters, artists Jacqueline Lou Skaggs and Gwendolyn Charlene Skaggs. Artworks will be switched out as work and ideas evolve, in response to the interactions of the existing artworks.
Jacquelines' paintings from her Mary Jane series ("made purely for the sake of painting"), her Unfinished view of the Housatonic with water stains, and A two word poem (Sweet dreams from dark waters) are juxtaposed with Gwendolyns' sculptures, delicate unfired slip castings, that continue her relentless endeavor to free Mary, not Mary Jane, but the "Oh Sweet Mary", mother of the child whose father is still unknown.
These two bodies of artwork exemplify the spirit of art making for the sake of sincerity.
