Jon Legere‘s, Finders Keepers – a collection of ‘Guardian Jugs’ and Large Collage Paintings opened Friday, September 9th in the Rick Faries Gallery.
This marked Legere’s second solo exhibition with the gallery. He continued to work with paint, collage, and mixed media, though explored a new medium in this exhibition – ceramics.
Alongside a series of large mixed media paintings, six face jugs (ceramic sculptures), referred to by Jon as “Guardian Jugs” were created for the show. These jugs were hidden around various locations on the island, and Jon invited “seekers” to try their hand at finding one. How did we know where to look? Accompanying artworks in the exhibit acted as maps with clues to where the jugs may be.
People loved this exhibit, and the chance to play the game – after all, as the title said, Finders Keepers!
