New Work by Steve Foley
Monday, February 14 - Wednesday, March 2, 2005from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
As a student at Syracuse University, Stephen Foley traveled to Haiti with his mentor, cultural anthropologist, Bill Waters. There, Foley taught pit firing techniques, bead making, and pottery processes. He also worked with local craftspeople to help establish fair trade and profit networks with several U.S. businesses. During his teaching stint, Foley's own work became influenced by the local artist and by the traditional artwork of the region. He found a renewed sense of liberation in his sculpted forms, the colors he used became brighter and the pattern work more ornate.
