The Ruth Mott Foundation, in cooperation with Greater Flint Arts Council, presents work by Michigan artists in the annual Applewood Public Art Program. The sculpture exhibition will be on display at the Applewood Estate in Flint, Michigan. This juried show presents selected art at five sites, outside on the grounds of the estate. The sculptures will be on display through the summer and early fall. Included in this 2005 addition of the exhibition is Lansing, Michigan resident, Jeff Wesley's work "My Hobby".
"My art is contemporary abstract expressionism; the juxtaposition of colors, the elements, light, space and time. It is a personal relationship between my earthly surroundings, the passage of life and time. The causal glimpses and experiences I gather of my earthly journey and store into my subconscious," states Wesley. Jeff has marketed his sculpture through absolutearts.com as a Premiere Portfolio Member since 2002. View more of his work at: http://www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/w/weseye/
Applewood was built in 1916 as a self-sustaining family farm and the primary residence for the Mott family. Ruth Rawlings Mott (1901-1999) moved to the estate after marrying Charles Stewart Mott. She became an active member of the Flint community and a prominent leader and philanthropist. She established the Ruth Mott Foundation as a means of extending the reach of her philanthropy in Flint beyond her lifetime. Mrs. Mott had a keen interest in the arts for its value in enriching the quality of peoples’ lives, enhancing their awareness of each other, promoting cultural diversity and supporting community vitality. The Applewood Public Art Program is one of many ways the Foundation continues Mrs. Mott’s support for the arts in Flint.
