June 26 – August 7, 2022 | Mindy Tousley & George Roby | Manifestations in Paper & Clay | Foundation Gallery

Manifestations in Paper & Clay, explores the friendship between Mindy Tousley & the late George Roby, the synchronicity of their work, and their shared use of abstraction to present their observations and experiences of the world through their art, exemplifying the larger conversation between artists which crosses time.

Mindy Tousley, is the Executive Director of The Artists Archives of the Western Reserve (AAWR) and a committed studio artist. Her practice as an artist using paper is influenced by her own background as a ceramicist, and is built around her appreciation for the beauty of the accidental mark or the random act. In this, her approach is very much like Roby’s approach to the clay. Her work is based on her observations of her everyday life, the natural world, and the urban environment, banality, absurdity and ugliness or beauty. She finds joy in creating order out of chaos, unbalancing and rebalancing and then finding the center.
