Stick Art by Paul Downs
December 7, 2020 – March 1, 2021
In celebration of 20 years of Stick Art at the New Deal Café, Paul Downs presents his latest show, “Bridges”.
Paul began showing art at the New Deal Café in December 2001 where he showcased for the first time his now well known wall hung stick sculptures. His creations were received with love and enthusiasm. The show was in the wake of the 9.11 tragedies and the community embraced his peaceful images which connect humans to nature in a unique way.
“Bridges” helps to connect us with joy and love and celebration. The signature pieces of this show depict people venturing onto a bridge to meet, to find love, to dance, to celebrate or to passionately kiss. Simple but powerful images that resonate deep within.
With a nod to the holidays look for symbols of the holiday in sticks, and a special treat of “Look Out Scrooge!” which just oozes of the goddess of Christmas future.
Of course, Paul continues to bring his audience the full scenes of nature he has also become known for. You will find a diving falcon, soaring owls, peace among the pines, riding the moon, going down the river, pumpkin harvest and much more. If you are looking to find your inner smile come and see his newest version of stick dancers in various leaps, kicks, and shouts of joy.
Some of Paul’s popular classics of the past are also here: The Hovering Goddess, Falling Together, The Towers, Dove and more.
All art is on display at the New Deal Café. The Café is currently closed but the art is visibly engaging through the windows.
