Art: Mosaic Muse
Mosaic Muse: Wearable Wall Art by Serenity Kenan
Painted pottery that one wears or displays on the wall walks the line between the personal and the performative; pieces that convey meaning as a sum greater than its parts. Ranging from talismans to tapestry – wearable and wall art serves a significant range of purpose, among them personal agency, communal values, and many times, disruption of the status quo.
An interactive aspect of this exhibit are the small collection of pendants and beads, created with kiln-fired stoneware and cold porcelain clay, through February 2022.
The artist welcomes folks to create their own art with these pendants and beads, and to share your creations with her!
Serenity Kenan creates award-winning, painted pottery, and is also known for her life-size paper mache figures. She has a Master’s in Education, and for a few summers, was the Art Director at a camp in Door County, Wisconsin. Now that she is back in Duluth, when not mixing clay for her next collection, she and her partner are probably running their dogs at the Lakewalk. Her recent exhibit at Duluth Folk School represents Disability Pride as a working artist in the Arrowhead region.
