March Demonstration  
  Jim Weaver
Monday, March 20
Oklahoma Contemporary Arts - 7-9pm


Jim Weaver has studied and practiced leather carving for over ten years but has looked at and studied art of all kinds for many years. Recently he has been experimenting with making block prints from tooled leather. He uses the techniques of western-style leather carving to represent natural resources, history, and spirituality in folk-art style projects. Usually the ground is cut open to show the earth and its resources. He calls the anvil, buffalo, whale, crown, gold nugget, oil derrick, Devil's Tower, gas stations, etc., his characters, and they reappear in different projects and contexts. Often he hints at meanings in the titles ("In the Peaceable Kingdom") or a visual context as the gold nugget which can't tip the scales of justice. Still he wants the projects to be open-ended, and wants the viewers to see what they will in the images.  Jim will be sharing with us about his art and demonstrating some of his techniques and will bring tools so that attendees can participate.
