Grafted to the Past: 85th Anniversary Exhibit

May 21 - July 31

 

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is celebrating its 85th anniversary with a special exhibit featuring 30 new works of art that were inspired by the museum’s permanent collections. The exhibit, Grafted to the Past, will be displayed May 21 through July 31, 2016. Artists with Ohio connections were asked to pick an artifact from the Museum’s collection to use as an inspiration for an original work of art. These new works were created in an array of media—ceramic, metal, leather, wood, textile, glass, acrylic, oil and photography. The new works will be displayed with their corresponding artifact. The artists found their muse in works displayed in each of the museum’s permanent exhibit galleries—American Indian, Historic Ohio and Asian (Japanese & Chinese).

 Artists were asked to share the impetus of the inspiration. The poetry in many of the responses becomes a third muse, enhancing both the artifact and the new piece. 

Grafted to the Past is a joyful celebration of beauty, human inventiveness and spirit, both past and present. It also suggests a hopeful future as the museum continues to inspire young and old as it has done in the past 85 years. The museum will offer free admission over the opening weekend, May 21 and 22. Guests, both children and adults, are invited to participate in a drawing for prizes.

 

Opening

 

 

Art from the Show

 

 

 

Todd Malenke
Mended Vessel

 

Artist Statement

The brokenness of a Korean rice bowl is the first step toward making it more beautiful than when it was whole. In the last thirty years I’ve visited the museum many times. Often I’m drawn toward the Asian gallery. And when in the gallery I’m drawn to the mended bowl. I love the mixing of two materials—ceramic and gold. I also like the metaphorical implications of brokenness and beauty. As Leonard Cohen’s lyric says, “There’s a crack in everything—That’s how the light gets in.”

 

Inspired by Korean Tea Bowl

10th-14th c. Repaired with gold lacquer

 

 

 


 

Kaname Takada

Bell Series Lidded Pot

Artist Statement 

I have been incorporating traditional Japanese motifs in my slip inlay decorations.

 

Inspired by Japanese Inro

19th c.  An inro is a row of nested tiers held with a silk cord and threaded over an obi (sash). The carved ivory netsuke is a toggle used as a counterbalance. 

 


 

 

 Jennifer Bush

Nesting Place

Artist Statement
As the Registrar at the museum I get to spend countless hours with the collection, just me and the artifacts. My thoughts are always drawn toward the process in which each piece was made and the person who made it, If only the artifact could talk. I think of the hands of the artist, what they looked like, the scars, cuts and bruises from long hours of creating. I think about the process of collecting the materials and the tools they used. Each piece has an artist with a story of its own process. My piece’s story is about the toughness of the material and the battle of manipulation.

Having been inspired by the American Indian baskets I harvested knotweed vines, wild grape vines and willow branches from my woods. Before I began to weave I stripped them of their leaves and soaked them in water. My hands ached and for a moment I could truly appreciate the effort that American Indian women put forth to make each basket. 

 

Inspired by Mescalero Apache Tray
19th c. coiled tray is woven with yucca leaves and root bark and has thin rawhide handles. Although it has a classic star design, the size is very rare. The Mescalero Apache continue to live in the southwest.

 

 


 

 

 

Kristen Dennison

Purse

Artist Statement

This bag was inspired by the American Indian leather and bead work, a fringed satchel and a painted basket. I decided to incorporate two pieces into one for a unique look that fit the period as well as today.

Inspired by Beaded Bag & Woven Basket Pattern

19th c.  American Indian Apache coiled jar and buckskin bag. The Apache were nomadic hunters and warriors dwelling in the Southwest for hundreds of years. 

 

 


 

 

Helen Moody

Pink Dress

Artist Statement

In 1985 when my husband was mayor, of Coshocton, I needed a period dress for the mayor’s promenade to wear in the Canal Days Festival. One day when I had grandchildren in the museum I spied a beautiful pink silk dress on a china doll and knew that I had found it. I made mine from a poly-cotton blend.

Inspired by Porcelain Doll

19th century German doll.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Carolyn Mann

Apron

Artist Statement

I used recycled silk fiber over dyed to make this piece.

Inspired by Hupa Kurauch Frontal Apron strands made of cloth and squaw grass. The Hupa reside in northern California where they had limited contact with non-native peoples until the 1849 Gold Rush.

 


 

 

 

Todd Malenke

Resilience

Artist Statement

The heron graces any landscape, from a flooded roadside field to a meandering river. I am inspired by the heron in the vase who is weathering the storm with poise and endurance.

 

Inspired by Japanese Crane Vase

19th c. A crouching heron waits out a rain storm. White vertical stripes are a stylized treatment of falling rain drops. Imari-Arita porcelain.

 

 

 


 

 

Curt Derby

Rounce

Artist Statement

Rounce is the handle by which the bed of a hand press, holding the form of type, is run under the platen and out again.

Looking back over 62 years of working with TYPE, I’ve found that I find myself selecting books to read by the type styles used by the printer. Strange? Not really. Type designers have always strived for greater readability in the printed word.

The printed word spread the idea of liberty and justice in early America and sowed the seeds of revolution. The Washington press enabled Thomas Paine and others to spread that word. This press is a symbol of not only freedom and of the art of creating legible type to spread the word of liberty.

You will note, this press is missing the rounce, the handle to place the type under the paper. Its design was more than just a handle. The semi-circle design actually absorbed some of the shock in having to move the heavy bed of the press, easing the printer’s work.

 

Inspired by Washington Press

Hand printing press, original machine used in 1898 by Jasper Meek, founder of Tuscarora Advertising, Coshocton, Ohio.

 

 


 

 

Joan Staufer

Untitled

Artist Statement

Upon being invited to participate in JHM’s 85th Anniversary Exhibit, “Grafted to the Past,” I sought the one piece from their collection to encompass my inspiration. Yet my visits, sketches and notes reflected a fixation upon the vitrines and their contents. Specifically I gravitated towards the cases filled with flint and stone tools in the Native American Gallery, being drawn to the archeologist’s journey and the artifact’s aesthetic honesty. I began to experience the layers of revelation that must occur. Through the artifacts we learn the life of the ancients, piece by found piece. It is as though they want to be heard, waiting just under the surface for the field walker’s eye to discover their gleam upon the plowed earth or forest floor. Their story becomes a part of our story, as they, as we, cross the boundary of time.

Inspired by vitrines of Coshocton County flint cache and stone

The Rothenstein Cache was found while digging a house basement in Coshocton. The 330 blades were found mostly intact. Native Americans would make a rough shape and the flint knapper prepared the flint into its final form.

 

 


 

 

Douglas Anderson

Glass Basket

Artist Statement

Recently my casting focus has been hand built containers. The Mogollon clay bowl inspired me with its texture and detail.

 

Inspired by Mogollon Clay Bowl

The Mogollon culture flourished from ca. 200 CE to ca. 1500 CE. Bowl was found in Redrock, New Mexico, in 1964.

 

 


 

 

Carolyn Mann

Coiled Basket

Artist Statement

Since early times people created pottery vessels by making clay coils and smoothing them to form their piece. Grasses and pine needles were also coiled together to make baskets.

 

Inspired by Native American Basket

This basket was constructed of cedar bark and grasses from the Nootka Tribe in the 19th century.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Nate Cotterman

Aperitif Decanter & Glasses

 

Artist Statement

I like the challenge of creating a functional piece that also has innovative design and a handmade quality. Glass blowing is mesmerizing to watch, let alone participate in. The process is what really drew me to the material

 


Inspired by Amberina Wine Decanter & Glasses

19th c.  Amberina is a two-toned glassware originally made from 1883 to about 1900 in New England. It was also produced by the Libbey Glass Company at Toledo, Ohio, into the 1890s.

 

 

 


 

 

John Lefelhocz

Hopewell Duck Pond Block

 

Artist Statement

The focus of this work is the Hopewell ceramic pot with bird design combined with a variation of the traditional duck pond quilt block. Ducks are awesome.

 

Inspired by Hopewell Bowl (replica) & Santa Ana Bird Pot
The original Hopewell ceremonial bowl can be viewed at the Ohio History Center. JHM’s Santa Ana Bird Pot is from the Rio Grande area. In traditional Pueblo, to be in harmony with nature is the ideal way of life. Most ceremonies involved asking for adequate rainfall.

 

 

 


 

 

Hong Yin

Dialogue of Time

 

Artist Statement

My painting in this exhibition is inspired by the American Indian pottery display of Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum. I have found many similarities between American Indian culture and Tibetan culture, such as religious atmosphere, the love of nature, and the true expression in art.

 

Inspired by Native American Pueblo jar

White streaks overall are a result of root marks from being buried. Found at Redrock, New Mexico.         

 

 

 


 

 

Ernest Galajda

Unending Music

 

Inspired by Grand Piano & Roseville Pottery

This 1850’s square grand piano was used during the Civil War era in the first Roscoe Hotel. 20th c. Weller vase was made in Roseville, Ohio. 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Jill Jones

Native American Country

 

Artist Statement

My inspiration for this painting was seeing all of the creative items that people made during a time when there was no electricity, and most of all, had to figure things out in trial and error. The painting is to remind us of what this land looked like while they were making baskets, pottery, clothes, canoes. Hard times but the beauty was there always. God’s beautiful handiwork and I have been blessed to paint it.

 

Inspired by Historic Ohio Gallery

American Indian pouch made of bearskin and trimmed with glass trade beads and tassels of fur. American Indian canoe, from 19th century, was used to promote northwest coast culture to the children.

     

 

 

 


 

 

Rachel Jane Hall

Mug Shot

 

Artist Statement

At a young age I learned to shoot. My Dad, as a hunter, knew the importance of gun education and taught my sister and I how to properly handle a firearm. Annie Oakley said, “Every woman should learn to shoot!” and I agree. The museum piece I took inspiration from is a Winchester Repeating Rifle .44 lever action, the same type of gun Annie shot in the Wild West shows. The gun I used to shoot this mug is a .22 lever action rifle that my Dad purchased in the 70s and gifted to me a few Christmas’s ago. The way the bullet enters and exits the clay is certainly interesting; it renders the vessel useless but not destroyed. Similar to a scar, it adds character, inside and out. I find it thrilling to combine the processes of clay and shooting, controversial to some, I share my aim with Annie, to misbehave.

 

Inspired by Winchester Repeating Rifle Model 1873.
Winchesters were among the first repeating rifles. This model was known as The Gun that Won the West.

     

 

 

 


 

Ken McCollum

Cochiti

 

Artist Statement

My art is meant to evoke a response in the viewer concerning political, social and spiritual direction. In my view, political and religious organizations should promote harmony within the community. I often combine ancient drawing concepts with contemporary altered thrown and hand built forms.

 

Inspired by Cochiti Effigy Jar

Rio Grande area. Hopi. Cochiti tribe. The name Hopi translates to mean The Peaceful People and strive to be at peace with all things. The Hopi were first encountered by the Spanish in the 16th century.

     

 

 

 


 

 

Esther Marie Versch

Frog Pot and Chilies

 

Artist Statement

Living in Ohio I paint what inspires me—the Ohio landscapes, wild Life, farm animals and my first love, the beautiful Native American artifacts from the JH Museum.

 

Inspired by Native American Effigy Bowl

Frogs were used to symbolize transformation.

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

Kristi Timmons

A Piece of my Soul

 

Artist Statement

The pine cone presented is a symbol of energy, fertility, spirituality and everlasting life. The presentation of the child in the altar piece represents all of these.

 

Inspired by Bronze home altar piece

Kuan Yin with her attendants is called a trinity for the home altar. She is honored by those who are hoping for a child or who desire protection for children.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Lon Baker

Havasupai Basket Illusion

 

Artist Statement

My work is often inspired by the patterns I see in weavings of all types whether blankets, rugs, quilts, or baskets.  To me, the thought process a weaver uses is essentially the same as mine. Different mediums require different craft skills, but they all are based on the concept of taking bits of color and putting them together to create an interesting overall pattern.

 

Inspired by Havasupai Basket

19th c.  The Havasupai people have lived in the Grand Canyon for at least 800 years.   

 

 

 

 


 

 

Carolyn Mann

Cinnabar

 

Inspired by Chinese Cinnabar Vase.

Lacquer is produced from the sap from the lac tree and mixed with a mineral called cinnabar. Several layers, up to 100, are applied and then the lacquer is carved.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Megan Lightell
Fallow Fields

 

Artist Statement

As a child, I visited the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum on many occasions, and I have vivid memories of the vast flint collection there. Those hard fragments seemed like such a distant connection to the culture that preceded ours, such tiny clues to a life on the same land that we now occupied. I remember seeing farmers and others walking out in the early spring fields, often freshly plowed, looking for their own pieces of a lost culture. This image comes from the present-day Porteus farm near the Porteus Mound, a reminder of how humans continue to exist in this landscape, occasionally unearthing a piece of the past.

 

Inspired by Flint Collection

 

 

 

 


 

 

Todd Malenke
Facing our Fears

 

Artist Statement

I am fascinated by masks—Polynesian, African, Northwest Coast Indian, and Japanese, to name a few. The designs and materials are often wildly imaginative. They always produce intense feelings—fear, laughter, or perhaps awe. This mask is in honor of my grand-daughter who imagines herself an Oni slayer.

 

Inspired by Japanese Oni Mask

19th c. The oni are a kind of yokai (demon, ogre or troll) from Japanese folklore. Though oni have been depicted in various ways in Japanese legend and art, sometimes also as women, they are characteristically thought of as pink, red, or blue-grey in color, with horns, three toes, three fingers, and on occasion with three eyes.

 

 

 

 


 

 

Yan Sun
Hope

 

Artist Statement

I like artistic and historic displays of American Indian in museums, including Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum, and I also like to visit Indian tribes. I tried to probe into and represent the spirit of Native American Indian culture through my paintings. I have devoted a great passion and amount of time in this area. My painting, Remembrance, pays homage to American Indian culture in a special way. It represents the mystery of the culture. However, with the infusion of emotion and celebrating colors, they are imbued with human kindness and beauty of life.

 

Inspired by Native American Gallery

 

 

 

 


 

 

Sumiko Takada
Inlaid Plate

 

Artist Statement

I have been incorporating traditional Japanese motifs in my slip inlay decorations.

 

Inspired by Japanese Inro

19th c.  An inro is a row of nested tiers held with a silk cord and threaded over an obi (sash). The carved ivory netsuke is a toggle used as a counterbalance. 

 

 

 


 

 

Nate Malenke

 

Artist Statement

The Samurai swords in the Asia Gallery are more than an inspiration for these knives. As the museum director’s son, how many times did I stop to admire the katana, wakazashi, and tanto blades? But it took me until 2010 to stop admiring and to pick up the hammer to make one of my own (lucky me, my dad is a blacksmith). Making swords, especially Japanese swords, is hard and time consuming—and no museum (even one run by my mother) would accept any of my amateur attempts. But those experiences developed my skills and ignited my interest in bladesmithing. These days, I focus on forging kitchen and hunting knives—functional, sellable, and apparently nice enough to be in this show.

 

I fashioned these knives using some of the same techniques that Japanese smiths developed in order to increase swords’ functional and aesthetic qualities. One technique is differential hardening, which is evinced by a ghostly hamon line running up the blade. This hamon is achieved by covering the spine of the blade in clay, heating the blade to a reddish-orange, and then quickly quenching it in water or oil.  During the quench, the uncovered steel cools faster, creating a knife with a hard edge, a durable spine, and a striking hamon. Another technique Japanese smiths used was to fold (kneed) steel in order to increase its uniformity. My pattern-welded Damascus knives are made by repeatedly folding together two different kinds of steel, one that etches brightly and one that etches darkly. The knife on display here contains 320 layers.

Special Exhibits

WWI Poster--Rallying the
Home Front

This special exhibit of American propaganda posters commemorates the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into WWI. The U.S. government decided to use a popular artistic medium, the poster, to incite fear in its citizens of an unknown enemy on another continent. Some of the illustrations have become the most iconic American images ever made, such as James Montgomery Flagg’s stern image of Uncle Sam pointing to the viewer above the words, “I Want You for U.S. Army.” Be prepared for an emotionally powerful and artistically fascinating experience.  Read more
