Farraday Newsome has recently completed a commission for the Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin, Minnesota. The commission was for two hanging platters, each approximately 26” in diameter and with high relief  imagery of native flora and fauna of the Minnesota woodlands.

Part of the ethos of the Mayo Clinic is that art and science together play a role in the healing process. Mayo uses art, architecture and beautiful surroundings to soothe the spiritual needs of patients and visitors.

The Mayo Clinic has an extensive museum-quality collection of art donated by Mayo benefactors. The art collection is scattered throughout its buildings, gardens, and courtyards. It includes magnificent pieces of glass, crystal, ethnographic art, ceramics, paintings and prints, sculpture, photography, and textiles.

This platter features Minnesota native birds (Baltimore Orioles, Yellow Warbler, Cardinals, Indigo Buntings, American Goldfinches), flowers (trilliums, asters), Polyphemous moths, ferns, pinecones, and red berries.

Farraday Newsome, Minnesota Woodlands II, glazed earthenware, 26 x 26 x 8”, 2013, collection of Mayo Clinic, Minnesota

This platter features Minnesota native birches in fall foliage, pinecones, Eastern Swallowtail butterflies, and birds (Cardinals, Baltimore Orioles, Eastern Bluebird, and Indigo Buntings). 

5      Green Revolution at Tempe Center for the Arts     

The Tempe Arts Center is hosting the exhibition Green Revolution, an eco-friendly, green-themed exhibition that engages visitors by addressing critical environmental issues concerning the local community. This version of Green Revolution is based on an exhibition originally created by the Chicago Museum of Sciences and Industry and its Black Creativity Council, and is made available by the Smithsonian Institution.

One of the Arizona artist featured in this exhibition is Sherrie Zeitlin. Sherrie is a fiber and ceramic artist who has been working in the arts community for more than thirty years. She  has a Masters in Fine Arts in clay from Arizona State University and maintains a clay studio in Phoenix, Arizona.


Sherrie Zeitlin writes:

Plastic bags are ubiquitous in our society. At the grocery store the milk is plopped into a plastic bag without the old question of “paper or plastic?” before I even get a chance to say “I brought my own bag”. Our streets are littered with plastic; the bags fly through the air on windy days and end up in our canals, fields and lakes. it is my hope that by presenting these items in a different light people will start to think of plastic bags in a new way. I want everyone to realize that we use way too much plastic. Most importantly, we need to take a reuseable bag with us to any store we frequent. It is a bit of a dichotomy to use plastic in an art piece that will last for a very long time but it is exactly what sets up the premise for these woven constructions and for the dialog that I hope will follow.

The artists in this show are Julie Anand, Joan Baron, Dan Collins, Mitch Fry, Kyle Jordre, Laurie Lundquist, Stacy Marko, Christy Puetz, Lisa Sipe, Samuel Troxell, and Sherrie Zeitlin. Green Revolution runs January 18 to May 25, 2013.
