This year's show was "Living Green." The call for entry suggested these items to consider:
· The color green, the color of plants that sustain all life;
· Reused or natural art materials;
· Inspirations for sustainable lifestyles; and
· The virtue of simplicity and reflective consumption.
These shots portray the gallery overall...I missed taking the back and one of the sides, but if you compare it to last year's show beginning here you'll see that it wasn't smaller at all...just a feeling. I won't share with you my quilts...I had four in this show, but the one I did especially for this show I spoke about here.
This is Kate Santucci's "Microbial." It is in a small box, the left side shows some sort of microscopic mite, and the other is an etched and painted eggshell showing strands of microbes. The back side is painted as well and the work is just fabulous.
This is one of my absolute favorites. It is gorgeous...and Nicole Wentz' elementary school students made it. If you are familiar with Dale Chihuly's Glass work, this is a Chihuly inspired piece made of recycled plastic bottles. It is just amazing and I'd love to see them make others. I'd hang this in my house in a heart beat.
More later...off to regenerate some red blood cells...if only!
