W/hole May 19–July 1, 2012 Sunroom Project Space
Join us Sunday, May 20 at 1:30PM, to meet the artist and hear her discuss the work.
For her highly personal Sunroom Project, Annie Varnot filled the room with enigmatic white sculptures to set up a serene space for contemplating life’s impermanence, as well as the potential for growth and renewal. To create this installation, Varnot collected unsellable eggs from a poultry farmer in Nova Scotia during an artist residency. She then washed and hollowed the dirty or irregularly shaped eggs and set them in plaster, making ambiguous forms with odd protrusions that are mysterious yet seem strangely familiar. Accompanying videos elucidate the visceral experience of manipulating the eggs.
Print and bring this invitation for free admission on May 20.

Libby Rowe, Curator
Justice Works Gallery, Blue Star Complex, San Antonio TX
Openings: Thursday, Nov 4 and Friday Nov 5, 6-10pm
The living spaces we create act as a stage upon which we live our lives and experience our familial relationships. The artists included in 2010 Home Show utilize the spaces and structures of the home to explore relationships of the people who inhabit these spaces.
The installations of Jodi Hays celebrate the unconsidered and overlooked spaces in her world. In her work, Hays ceremonially cleans a neglected space, replacing the remnants of life that collect in the corners over time with floral inspired sculpture.”
