Small Whimsy 
Brumfeld’s Gallery 
November 9 - December 21
Okay ... so every gallery puts together a show o small works at the end o the year, hoping thatour art loving visitors will want to spread to joy by buying art to put under the Christmas tree.But, the work in ‘Small Whimsy’ is so cool and ull o attitude that you will want to keep it oryoursel. Te gallery is debuting work by Kina Crow, Leslie Hinton and Laura Lloyd alongsidegallery avorites, Jackie Hurlbert, Lisa Kaser, and Jola Spytkowska. It is a coincidence that all theexhibitors are women, but perhaps there is a subtext the curator ailed to recognize. Aer all...Isn’t ‘sassy’ a very emale state o mind.Jackie Hurlbert’s visual language communicates something beyond representation or pureaesthetics. She has created a vocabulary o symbolism, where oversized eet denote the strengthto stand alone, and exaggerated hands beckon you to step inside yoursel. For her, clay serves asthe vehicles o meditation; a way o speaking without words.Kina Crow is a sel taught artist, Having worked in theater wardrobe, helping actors to denetheir ctional personas, her wealth o knowledge concerning story, antasy, relationships, andnarration now inuses her sculptures with a distinct sense o character. Heavily autobigraphical,each piece, however small, represents a ragment or moment rom the artist’s lie.Leslie Hinton creates sculptures that are instantly recognizable. By approaching the suraceso her ceramics in much the same way a child does with a coloring book, the ceramicist is ableto give each piece an impulsive and endearing quality. Never quite ree rom the heavier adultthemes o guilt and death, Hinton’s ceramics cling to a happier and more innocent past whilehinting at darker times to come.
