Opening Reception: Friday, October 6, 7-9pm
Exhibition dates: September 29 – November 4, 2017
MARK of the HAND is a juried exhibition of original artwork at Tall Grass Gallery.
From prehistory, humans have told their story by literally leaving marks with their hands. Direct mark making and hand forming are the theme of the “Mark of the Hand” art show.
“Mark of the Hand” will include two and three-dimensional art which celebrates the legacy of traditional, pre-1800 art tools and processes. The artwork will show evidence of being made directly by the human hand.
Media includes painting, drawing, woodcuts, collage, sculpture, ceramics, metals, fiber and glass. 
“Awards of Excellence” will be given at the opening reception. 
Artists participating are Marcus Alleyne, Connie Andrews, Richard Benoit, Mary Bookwalter, Randy Buvala, Katie Conroy, James Bowden, Susan Brauer, Bronwyn Elkuss, Linda Emmerman, Elizabeth Farnesi, June Finnegan, Gayle Fisher, Marjorie Fisher, Jaime Foster, Robert Fritz, Anitra Frazier, Lea Goldman, Linda Hancock, Eric Hazeltine, Set Hicks, Jack Kapost, Tammy Kordik, Margaret McKerral, Jan Meister, Elena Morone, Erin Cramer, Sarah Peak Covery, Ayanna Proctor, Lynn Ruedger, Cassandra Swierenga, and Carla Toth.
