Forage Modern Workshop

Featured Artist: Drawings by Rachel Howe

Shows, FeaturesRebekah CookComment

February 16 - March 31
Rachel Howe from Small Spells has created 2 bodies of work to show at Forage Modern Workshop. The Zodiac Series and Two Groups of Drawings.

All of her pieces from both collections are available for purchase.

--

//From The Artist//

The two groups of drawings work alone and as a collective. Each drawing in some way addresses the layers of existence, the multiplicity of consciousness, when it taps into other senses around us. Listening to hidden voices, bringing underlying themes to the surface. Perception consists of moments of multi-layered consciousness: the concepts originating in the past + the sensory information of the present + assumptions about the future. And that's just linearly, there are also depths. Generational knowledge rears its head, ancestral lens come into focus.

--

The Zodiac series:
Aries: The start of the zodiac, Aries always leads the way, jumping head first into whatever challenges await, especially if it's an opportunity to show off some skills.

Taurus: Down to earth, connected to the land and all who lives there. Taurus takes pleasure in being an integrated part of it's surroundings.

Gemini: The sign of the twins, there is a slight fracturing of the self in order to transmit all kinds of information. Active, dynamic, on the move.

Cancer: The pet dog symbolizes so much about Cancer, who is loyal, sentimental, protective, soft most of the time but strong when needed, affectionate, a good friend, and loves to be at home.

Leo: The shining self, who takes pleasure in showing the best to the world. The sun is always out in the Leo world.

Virgo: The loving caretaker who efficiently nurtures others. A bridge between the earth and action. Applying love to knowledge.

Libra: The sign of harmony and balance, Libras are drawn to beauty, both in form and the concept of it. Always striving for the most pleasing outcome.

Scorpio: The darkest of all the signs, but in tune with the power held there. When Scorpio enters where others fear to tread, they find their reward.

Sagittarius: The explorer, the philosopher, the adventurer. Sagittarius seeks to break the chains of limited knowledge and limited experience by searching for truth and meaning.

Capricorn: The most reality-based sign, Capricorn wants to be reassured of its existence. It finds truth in the concrete and works towards understanding its lived experience by pinning it down.

Aquarius: Aquarius is the eccentric in the group, who does things a little differently. Able to be a loner who's connected to the crowd, operating from a logic only known to them.

Pisces: Pisces often exists in the space between two contradicting impulses, pulled one direction and then the other, somehow both making sense and able to co-exist.

Catch Cuties, Not Cooties

Print, cut, fold, catch a cutie.

Find your dreamboat-to-be. Maybe they're a bright-eyed Leo or a 1992 Will Smith. Or maybe a Friends-era Jen An, or the cutie queen Lisa Bonet.

Don't want (or need) a cutie? Find what on-screen romance describes your actual love life. OR which dynamic duo represents you and your BFF IRL. Cutie Catchers designed in-house by our very own Kelsie.

We are thrilled to have a collection of work by Casey Deming on display at Forage Modern Workshop through the month of September.

FeaturesBethany AshmunComment

When someone (In this case, Mel) asks you to stage a new build in Linden Hills the answer should always be yes. Even if it means you have to pull the whole team together to source and brainstorm and plan, to mood board yourselves silly, and then collectively make it happen in a matter of days. It is ALWAYS worth it.  We had the best time sourcing the most incredible pieces from our current catalog of vendors and collaborating with a few local friends too - THANK YOU!! This 3-story house with a wrap around patio, a bathroom to equipt each bedroom, and careful consideration to all of the curated materials (the floors are GORGEOUS!) will haunt your dreams. This house is nuts, you guys. Thanks for the fun opportunity, Mel!
