Detroit Artist: Donald Calloway Jr.
I own two pieces of Donald Calloway's art. I collected these on the same day, at the close of an art festival Beckie and I attended. I didn't have enough money to buy the fish flopped over a cast iron frying pan, but I loved that, too. This is a carved wooden winged heart. It hangs from a ceiling tile joint, and reminds me to lift my spirits. Not much I can find about this remarkable artist, except that he perhaps teaches with The Stillman Foundation and there is a close-up photo on flickr, called stranger#41. Thank you Donald Calloway Jr., artist, for the joy you've shared.
