CorrespondenceCourse

Date : November 11, 2016

Norte Maar features our recent collaboration: ‘Charting the #CorrepsondenceCourse of Two Artists  Abigail Doan + Brece Honeycutt.’

detail of Correspondence Course exchange with Abigail Doan + Brece Honeycutt

“Founded on the ideas of collaboration among artists, Norte Maar is always excited to learn about independent projects that take form when two or more artists create, respond and explore the world together. One such project, initiated during the Autumn of 2015, features artists Abigail Doan (@lostinfiber) and Brece Honeycutt (@onacolonialfarm) who began a parallel process of collecting, diagramming, and altering select materials in an urban to rural dialogue intended to examine modern and historic connections in their daily lives. The results of this dialogue have evolved into #CorrespondenceCourse: a collaborative, materials exchange project between artists Abigail Doan and Brece Honeycutt.”

Norte Maar for Collaborative Projects in the Arts: creating, promoting and presenting collaborations among the visual, literary and performing arts, connecting emerging artistic communities, and uniting cultural forces to foster artistic expression and raise the imaginative energy in us all.  To participate in their current #MakeMoreArt campaign, visit the Indiegogo website.


b(RE)ce garments at LABspace

Date : September 28, 2016

Saturday October 22nd at 12pm, please join us for a ‘fashion show’ of b(RE)ce garments at LABspace in Hillsdale, NY

brece-honeycutt-event

Both eco-dyed b(RE)ce garments and works on paper will be on view.

The b(RE)ce series is made from selected repurposed garments (shirts, sweaters, blazers, dresses) dyed naturally from plants gathered from the land around my studio in Western Massachusetts. On summer mornings, I collect morning glories, rose leaves and coreopsis, for example, and in the fall harvest fallen leaves and barberry, and dry goldenrod and zinnias for winter use in dyeing. The colors and patterns imprinted on the garments were once found on the forest floor or on the stalks of plants. Each b(RE)ce garment is a unique, naturally dyed work.

LABspace,  2642 NY 23 (just west of Route 22), Hillsdale NY 12529

“Email: Report from a colonial farm” on Two Coats of Paint

Date : July 29, 2016

Thanks, Two Coats of Paint for the “Report from a colonial farm” published on July 27th, 2017.

“Brece Honeycutt is fascinated by the lives of the people who lived in her colonial farmhouse before she and her husband bought the place, and her extensive research into the lives of the previous owners has long informed her work, which carries forward the legacy of the colonial settlers–the hopes and hardships of early immigrants.  Read the full story with links and images.”
