Transcript to home, expressing a sense of nurturing for the human housed in a body. Her large scrolls are also made of papier- mache and are embedded with rusty chains, gaskets, gears and nails—interior "body parts" to her human figures. They convey the idea that the physical body is in fact a machine which needs care, without which it also will deteriorate into unworkable parts. The vine constructions are also "habitats" for the nurturing spirit, sturdily built of vine pieces cleaned of bark and tied together in much the same way that our early ancestors must have used tp form shelters. Papier-mache covers the joints, adding strength to the pieces visually as well as structurally. I would feel perfectly secure and comfortable climbing to the top of any of them. Clyde Connell belongs to The Great Gators, a small group of artists who meet for Tuesday night suppers in Shreveport. They stimulate their creative lives through conversation, seminars, workshops, and the like. Among those invited to their seminars were Lucy Lippard, Judy Chicago, Jackie Windsor and Roberta Smith. These feminist influences on Connell's art are acknowledged and apparent, as she creates from within (herself) and without (her environment) forming a unity of her deep sense of herself as woman and artist. The grid in Rain Place falling loose from its frame like a waterfall and extending onto the floor in front of the frame probably is an accurate visual statement of her own life as an artist. A fairly structured person falling free from a rigid framework. Connell laughingly says everyone immediately picks up on her physical description: a 95-pound, 80-year-old woman. "It has nothing to do with my art." She has been described, as well, as "an original artist whose great strength is hammered out of lonely individualism." Connell has had one-woman shows in Shreveport and most recently, in the Tyler Museum of Art. Her exhibit at Lawndale Annex is not all that easy to find. Persistence pays off. Locate Dismuke Street on the map. It converges with Telephone Road and the Gulf Freeway. Follow Dismuke east until a block before it deadends into Lawndale. You will see a large yellow-brick warehouse to the right. Across the street in the parking area is a large garbage skip labeled "Lawndale Annex." There are a couple of large overhead doors and two regular doors. Try each, one will be open. The warehouse is open only weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Once inside, in an enclosed, separated, interior "gallery" you will be rewarded with an experience I can only call mystical. Look slowly, for the artist has much to tell us, and the exhibit closes November 23, so you will not be able to return as often as I have. I've spent many lunch breaks in the dimly lit place.
