At that time he thought all art had to make a cultural statement. His view of art may be less narrow today, but he is limiting this exhibit to works of that nature. Some of these works from 1969 through 2013 have not been shown in Eau Claire before. Head vs Heart • November 30–January 6 Exhibit by Brenda Brousseau Artist Reception: Thursday, December 4, 7-8:30 p.m. Brenda began beading decades ago after her grandmother took her to an exhibit of Native American beadwork and bought her a child’s loom from the gift shop. Brenda has never looked at life the same since. Art to Brousseau is a continuation of her spirituality, and that journey has formed the basis of her work. Her preferred bead is called a seed bead, the same type of bead historically found in Native American work. She researches every headdress theme so that each can be layered with both meaning and symbology. Last year she received a grant from the Minnesota Arts Board to start beading a collection of wall mandalas.
