Name: "The Most Beautiful Mistake You Can Make" Art Exhibit
Date: June 3, 2022 - June 25, 2022
"Kintsugi" - Tracey Adams
Event Description:

The Most Beautiful Mistake You Can Make, an exhibit exploring errors, omissions and faults in art, opens Friday, June 3rd at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts. The Cherry Center is located at the corner of 4th and Guadalupe, Carmel.

The exhibit intends to emphasis how random errors can become an artistic catalyst to an aesthetically complete work of art.  In some folk art traditions artists insert “intentional” errors into handmade textiles as a gesture to the perfection of divinity—or, at least, the imperfection of humans. In the Japan, the practice of “kintsugi” (gold splicing) uses errors to enhance ceramics. Instead of discarding marred vessels, practitioners of the art repair broken items with a golden adhesive that enhances the break lines, making the piece unique. Abstract Expressionism is built on enhancing and using errors in painting.

The exhibit will include recent artwork by Tracy Adams, Rob Barnard, Allen D. Carter, Laurel Farrin, Judith Foosaner, Nancy Genn, Francie Hester, Barbara Johnson, Tom Nakashima, Sammy Peters, Tony Sheeder, and The Temple Sisters.

The exhibit will close Saturday, June 25th.
