I'm looking for someone with expertise in wood carving. A statue made for the Anawim Center in Chicago, a Native American organization, has developed cracking issues and needs repair.

The statue is recently carved, and stands about 5 feet high.

Any information about possible repair would be greatly appreciated.

REpose Gallery is pleased to announce Tara Fadenrecht’s installation, on display in Gallery 144 at the River East Art Center in Chicago, Illinois from October 2 – November 9, 2009. An opening reception will be held October 2, 2009, from 6:00-9:00 p.m., with an accompanying artist presentation about the work on October 6, 2009 at 6:30 p.m.

Fadenrecht’s shell shaped, cage like interactive installation is constructed of hand-woven polypropylene and steel strapping with employment/inclusion of video, light and sound. The installation evolves from the recognition of the self created, angst based cage. The initial relief felt at this revelation is short-lived though, as awareness gives way to the unalleviated persistence of the newly identified anxiety. Viewers are encouraged to share their reactions via a digital recorder located near the work.

A resident artist at the River East Art Center since 2008, Fadenrecht earned a B.F.A in Metalsmithing from the University of Kansas in 2002. Earlier this year, she was awarded a Community Arts Assistance Program grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency, to help fund this project.
