Brandy Clements, Owner Discover Planet Art writes:
I was fortunate to be invited to Cleaster’s home studio nearby Planet Art in the River Arts District. We had tea and discussed travel and art and Asheville and how you need to BYOJ (job). Then she showed me piece after piece of her work…the likes of which I’ve never seen… Art I’d expect to see for $10,000 in the MOMA or Guggenheim...
Her body of work just for the last couple of years could fill Blue Spiral and you could spend days on her site, lost in her world of creative visions...
Can she get any more spectacular? Yes, she can. She also created an alphabet called ALNUGE (TM.) ALNUGE is a K-12+ STEM, core curriculum and art activity which fosters creativity, academic excellence, innovation, and ingenuity. ALNUGE, a teacher's resource for STEM education, is based on letters, numbers, and geometric shapes. It fits the guidelines and standards for the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics,) and STEAM (STEM + Art.)
Please, support local artists. Go to http://cleaster-cotton.artistwebsites.com/index.html for your next greeting card or gift purchase. Spread the word. Visit her on facebook. Stop by Studio 375 Depot in the River Arts District to see the art of Cleaster Cotton in person. Keep your eyes open for her next show…you will be part of art history in the making!
