The Art and Sole of Lisa Sorrell (August 16, 2018 - October 28, 2018)

 

Master cowboy-bootmaker Lisa Sorrell brings her talents to our museum for an unforgettable exhibit. Many call her an artistic genius, and a pioneer who entered into a craft that few, if any, women were a part of. Her work is characterized by intricate inlay and overlay--delicate shapes cut into leather, and held in place with stitching done on an old single-needle Singer sewing machine. Using vintage tools, she stretches, shapes, and molds the leather parts and pieces into a beautiful, functional piece of art. She makes two or three pairs of boots a month, with a waiting list of up to a year. She even made a pair of boots for Arnold Schwarzenegger. Lisa says that "Each pair of boots reveals a quest for meaning in an ever-changing reality." Beautiful, yet functional - you won't want to miss this exhibit.
