Aron Fischer

Artist Statement:
My sculptural work is comprised of tool-like objects of unknown utility. Each object is made up of materials traditionally used both in Art and Craft contexts, and are reminiscent of hand tools, but whose purpose is obscured, or even unknowable. By displaying them on Shaker-inspired peg rails, inherently utilitarian fixtures and non-sequiturs in a gallery context, each installation blurs the line between the functional and non-functional. These objects aim to problematize how hand tools, and by implication the handiwork skills they require, are appraised in today's society.

    Lacey Campbell

    Bio:

    Growing up on her family's cattle and hog farm in Missouri, Lacey Campbell learned the value of hard work. On the farm, Lacey taught herself building and design by re-purposing scrap materials and tinkering with machines. Further pursuing her interests, Lacey obtained a BFA in Furniture Design from Savannah College of Art & Design, and then started working for Sauder as a furniture designer. During her time at Sauder, Lacey traveled the world, picking up the latest trends from furniture shows and factories. When Lacey's not hard at work, gracefully solving unique designs problems, she enjoys listening to her boyfriend's band 'Tis.'
