SANDBAR, depicting a river sandbar, is composed of stained glass and paper clay fired together to over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit in order to get a depth of color not possible with regular glazes. 5 ½” x 10 ½” x 1 ½”. SANDBAR, along with ERUPTION and LAGOON is currently on display at the Arts Benicia Show “Cutting Edge: Nontraditional Glass” in Benicia, California.
An Ekphrastic Show is one that combines visual and verbal works of art: for example, a painting and a poem inspired by it, or a sculpture inspired by a poem and the poem. So, I am delighted to announce that my “Whimsical One-Liner” ink drawing HALF ASS DRAWING has inspired poet Mike Cohen to create a poem entitled “DONE-KEY.” Both the poem and the drawing can be viewed at the Manayunk-Roxborough Art Center, 419 Green Lane, Manayunk, PA from December 2, 2018 through December 9, 2018. There will be an opening reception from 12:00 until 3:00pm on Sunday, December 2nd.
