We are beginning to get close to the first opening of our traveling exhibit Our Fragile Home which can be seen at the Southern Vermont Art Center’s Elizabeth de C. Wilson Museum from May 18th through July 14, 2013. We are so excited. This is something Jerry and I have worked on for four years. The idea had been gestating in my head since 1990 when I heard a group of Astronauts/Cosmonauts speak at the United Nations on Earth Day. Their words describing their view of our planet from space were an eloquent plea for us all to be good stewards of the earth. That is what the twenty nine works on paper and three large sculptures we created are about. The zen-like work uses natural materials from the earth…mulberry paper, charcoal, beeswax, wood, alabaster plus bronze, steel and glass to express this timely and important theme. From Manchester Center the show travels to the Housatonic Museum, CT, the Brattleboro Museum, VT and to the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, MA in 2014.
