FLINN GALLERY'S NEW EXHIBIT- JUST SHOES: WHERE ART CRAFT AND FANTASY MEET:
February 3- March 16, 2022
Greenwich Library, Flinn Gallery
"Just Shoes: Where Art, Craft and Fantasy Meet features more than 70 shoes by 20 artists, selected from a larger collection of fantasy shoes commissioned by Jane Gershon Weitzman, wife of the renowned shoe designer Stuart Weitzman. Jane had a vision to create a gallery of fictional shoes for their Madison Avenue store windows and she traveled the world to find artists who could help her fulfill her dream. Cobbled together from a surprising array of materials and forms, blending traditional craftsmanship with the unexpected, these shoes exist as artistic one-offs. Totally unwearable and joyfully defiant of practical use and anatomy, they exist purely to delight the eye and the imagination." (Flinn Gallery)
"Notable artists whose innovative designs are on view include: Ann Johnson, who has had two of her sculptures displayed in the East Wing of the White House; Kevin Radu, who created a 911 memorial for the Chrysler headquarters in Detroit; Sharon von Senden, who designed and constructed more than 20,000 square feet of mosaics with nearly 5 million pieces of glass for the City Museum in St. Louis; Danielle Pollitz, who was commissioned to sculpt the Angel of Hope award presented to President Bill Clinton; and Joan Klimo, who designed shoes for Christian Dior."
