    Tender Vessels

    Cathy Ward and Eric Wright

    A book of new mixed-media work by Cathy Ward and Eric Wright.

    With their honoring of folkloric aesthetic vocabularies, their non-oppositional encompassing of complex, verbally-based literary and philosophical realms and love of shiny things, their history of collaborative social experiment and advocacy for the viability of small-scale group politics (both in their own work and within their communities), and their productive model of sensory-grounded human intellect that recognizes its continuity with the rest of nature, Catharyne Ward and Eric Wright have, in Tender Vessels offered a walk-through manifesto for the future of art, and the components for a makeshift coffin-raft to carry us to the next shore. —From the accompanying essay by Doug Harvey
