I thought I would post some photos of the opening night of my solo mosaic exhibition at the Swan's Island Educational Society. I had a great turnout, met lots of interesting people, and enjoyed good food. Selling artwork was a bonus. The exhibit runs until August 5th, if you missed the opening night, you can still check it out!
I grew up on an island off the coast of Maine. I wanted to create a mosaic that reminded me of days spent on the water, hauling traps and catching lobsters. The seafoam color sparkles and the fractures remind me of looking through the water as the traps are pulled up. The red glass has lots of varying colors, all of which I have seen in a real lobster. The brown edging represents rope, and the white the foam of the seawater.
This mosaic will be part of my solo exhibit at the Swan's Island Library and Educational Society from July 22nd-August 5th. Opening receptions will be July 22nd at 4:00 pm. I hope to see you there!
I recently finished fish #2 in my Funky Fish series. Each fish is native to Maine, but my interpretation is wildly colorful. Growing up on an island has made me mindful of our oceans and how easily they are polluted. Each fish in this series is comprised of abnormal colors and traces of metal, to gently remind us to be sensible in how we treat our waters. The first in the series was 'Lipstick Halibut'. Below are photos of 'Crayon Salmon'. I enjoy these bright, and colorful fish.
