In addition to pursuing their separate artistic callings, Team Artifact’s members collaborate to produce group shows of their own and other artists work, including an exhibit of hand-made books that kicked off with an author reading.
“We all needed space, wanted a big, dirty teepee to get up inside and get real emotional within inside it and ourselves—a space when also we get like everybody else everywhere at the same time to come inside from it and see several things at once,” said Tyson. “Like we could have sixty roasted stones and they are the biggest beautiful stones Keith and Tara ever saw, and they had enough money so they took it. They took the stone. We wanna show not only them but all other people like they are everywhere and they can see how this is the stuff i heard about in Cherry Tails, like its not true but i was wrong, and it is true.”
When the group took over the space last year, it was an emotional moment for everyone: “When Tony handed big dog the keys, he handed them slowly and said ‘I am no shaman but i does has a golden rose that smell like cheespepper, and with that rose i sew a stone to you.’”
