‘Tools of the Trade’ at Jean Kigel Studio

New work by Jean Kigel.

Jean Kigel’s final biweekly virtual theme show for the season is called “Tools of the Trade.” If you are drawn to old stuff, you’ll appreciate this series of keepsakes.

The show runs Sept. 25 through Oct. 9.

Kigel has amassed personal artifacts for these paintings.  Appropriately, this collection starts with her favorite tools for Asian brush painting. Then, in tribute to her mother, it includes early home kitchen tools like a Mixmaster, an ice crusher and a baked bean pot. Other household tools, many of which she has used herself, are a candlestick telephone, a sad iron and clamp-on roller skates. In tribute to her machinist/ woodworking father, she created a series of bit braces, calipers and an eggbeater hand drill. Last but not least, are tools for the land and sea, like wooden blueberry baskets and decaying fish piers.

Discover this show both online at www.jeankigel.com and in person, by appointment, at 1396 Back Cove Road in Waldoboro. Masks and social distancing are required. For more information, email jean@jeankigel.com, or call 832-5152.
