Event Description

Our CRMA Museum Store Featured Artist for July is local Iowa artist Jefferson Henshaw. Stop in to see the village of his amazing houses. 

Jefferson says: Growing up in northern British Columbia in the middle of the woods and Rocky Mountains, nature was my first playmate. Now, in my search for form through these 'Bonsai Houses', nature is always a guide. Gravity, the properties of the clay, and instincts are what I rely on most. I strive for spontaneity. Do you agree that we find more authenticity and true expression in the act of doing than in planning, thinking, and analyzing? The way becomes clear as we go forward. 

 With my Village Series, I hope to bring joy into the world; to make you smile. I also want to point to a simpler way of life. A less distracted life that's willing to turn the cell phone off in favor of a sunset. 

Admission to the Museum Store is free, and it's Free Summer at the CRMA from July 1st through September 2nd.
