FULLER CRAFT MUSEUM PRESENTS Donna Dodson: Zodiac February 2 – May 19, 2019

Opening Reception: Sunday, February 3, 2:00 – 5:00 pm


Aquarius

Donna Dodson: Zodiac Zodiac presents acclaimed woodworker Donna Dodson’s two sculptural series referencing all 24 animal characters associated with the Lunar or Chinese calendar and the Sun signs of Western astrology. With such charming creatures as a lion, a bull, a ram, a penguin, a beaver, and a falcon, Dodson’s carved wood menagerie is sure to delight and inspire audiences of all ages.


Dragon

Donna Dodson has been carving images out of wood for nearly 20 years. Her sculptures explore feminine beauty and evoke humor and playfulness but also grace, power, and emotional strength. Her unique vision responds to the relation of animals to the human spirit that have existed since ancient times. Her figures are almost always female and range in size from intimate to larger than life. She has been honored with solo shows nationwide for her artwork. In addition, her monumental works have been exhibited internationally in sculpture parks and art museums.

In 2011, Dodson participated in the Verbier 3D Foundation’s Artist Residency and Sculpture Park in the Swiss Alps. In 2015, Donna participated in a residency in Cusco Peru at the Escuela de Bellas Artes that culminated in an exhibition at Museo Convento de Santo Domingo Qorikancha with the Boston Sculptors Gallery. In 2016, she had her first solo museum show of “mermaids” in 2016 at the New Bedford Art Museum. In 2017, Dodson's solo show Zodiac began a national tour.

Saplings
The Breakneck Road at Hulls Cove has been a summer rendezvous for Native Americans as long as memory exists. On this very spot, Samuel D. Champlain landed in 1604- the first of a tsunami of European visitors to this fragile ecosystem. Owl has seen the world change and has a message for humankind. Step into the sacred space and listen. If you open your heart, Owl has advice to share.

Little Red Riding Hood
32" tall

Little Red Riding Hood is anything but little. Her big feet threaten to stomp on any wolves, or predators that would dare to cross her path. Her big shoulders allude to her inner strength.


Red Tail Hawk

Red Tail Hawk is common presence in our midst. Like a Haida sculpture, or a totem of a school marm, the steely gaze of her watchful eyes mind her charges with protection and good care.


Tiger Mom

Tiger Mom longs to march her children to the beat of the Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother yet inside she cannot bring herself to do it. She suffers from a softness of heart and a fragile nature.
