The Sylvia Rusche Agency will be featuring its eighth installment in a series of rotating art displays at at 104 1st Street North. The Artwork of Creative Clay's Eric Bristow will be featured with a reception on Friday, March 2 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Creative Clay member artist Eric Bristow is from Paradise, CA, a small Northern California town located in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Bristow, a navy veteran, is a talented, independent artist who prefers working amongst a community of makers. The Creative Clay studios offer him such an environment. Bristow chooses to work in fine tipped marker pen and color pencils on paper, and executes these drawings with the detail of a fine illustrator. His portrayals of rabbits in whimsical settings led to a commission for Creative Clay Fest 2017. His drawing of a rabbit with an electric guitar appears on t-shirts for the festival and are sold in the Good Folk Gallery. Eric also invents and draws intricate contraptions that move coal and other objects through a maze of tracks and chutes from one end of the paper to another. This beautiful series of work, framed for the gallery, and future exhibitions, absorbs the viewer for long lengths of time.
