All Day Art Gallery: Feastival: The Irony of What and How We Eat

Feastival: The Irony of What and How We Eat


March 20 – April 12

Feastival is an exhibition that started as a strictly cast iron show but quickly morphed into a “full-on” interdisciplinary extravaganza. While the majority of the work will be cast iron, there will also be cast aluminum and bronze as well as a few paintings. The exploration of food and how it is consumed, however, is the common theme of this show and the force that ties the exhibition together. Another unifying force is the use of irony within the work no matter the media so it is either made of iron or ironic or both, but always about food.

Participating artists include: Toby Flores, Michael Lansangan, Joel Kiser, Zane Mahanna, Isaac Sandoval, Martin Spei, Luke Sides and Shawna Wangseng.

Feastival will kick off a weekend of fun in the sculpture area at Collin. The Reception for the exhibition will be Thursday, April 10. Three artists Demos/Artist Talks by Martin Spei, Isaac Sandoval and Toby Flores will follow on Friday, April 11.

We will finish with a bang as we will host our Annual Spring Iron Pour Saturday, April 12.

Gallery hours are Monday 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; Tuesday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

After that, he studied sculpture and blacksmithing at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale receiving a MFA in 2003. He now lives and works in Hays, Kansas, teaching sculpture there since 2006.

According to the artist, his art is "mostly sculpture these days, objects, sometimes conceptually based and sometimes formal, objects that tell stories or that are just for looking at, sometimes made of cast iron, sometimes steel, usually heavy and humorous, sometimes made of wood or aluminum, ornamental or functional or both, usually not very colorful, mostly made by hand, likely made with use of duct tape, wire, hot-glue and a sharpie, sometimes depicting humorous accounts of friends or family, best made on a full stomach, blurring the boundaries between the hand made and the mass produced, always made with a smile or a grin."

Artist Statement:
“It is a great mistake to think anything too profound or rich for a popular audience. No train of thought is too deep or subtle or grand, but the manner of presenting it to their untutored minds should be peculiar. It should be presented in anecdote or sparkling truism or telling illustration or sparkling epithet, etc.; always in some concrete form, never in a logical, abstract, syllogistic shape.” Rufus Choate 1799-1859

I ascribe my style of sculpture to Mr. Choate’s theory, however dated it will seem to many of my contemporaries. I want to engage my audience with very clear references so that the meaning and story behind the sculpture is relevant and profound.

I observe ordinary people in the world and they give me great cause for curiosity. The images of postures and symbolistic gestures I encounter turn into objects in my mind. The objects I make question the efficacy of the tasks we perform, mostly bringing attention to the labor and intention required to complete our tasks. I want my figures and images to represent the outcome of continuous endeavor and the satisfaction of desire found in achievement.

The making of classic bronze sculpture is an involved process. The initial sculpting in clay is my favorite part of that process - the planning, labor and building up of the surface of the clay. The creating an armature and then the many subsequent processes evolve into the language I use to communicate with myself and the physical world.

My work is inspired primarily by the Ashcan School and the Social Realism movement. My first inspiration was the Diego Rivera mural at the Detroit Institute of Art, an immense work of art that thrilled me as a child and from which I continue to draw inspiration. I work mostly in bronze, but also sculpt using iron, aluminum, rubber, resin, plaster and wood.
