Monthly Archives: September 2011

I made six new pieces for this show. A writer titled the show “Post-Surrealists in Paradise”. Wilton created thirteen mixed media pieces with a tropical parrot theme. I followed the theme with a series of “tropical tree pieces (two six to seven feet tall and three pedestal pieces) and a 9 foot span banana leaf mobile. I also included a leaf and petal mobile and a kinetic sculpture “passion series 5”. It is a very colorful and fun show.

Just had the opening for the “Post-Surrealists in Paradise” show at the Gateway Center for the Arts in DeBary.  It was a two artist show with fellow DeLand artist, John Wilton. The opening was last Sunday afternoon, September 11.

I wanted to post a few photos of the show. I realize that Sunday, September 11th was not a great day for an opening, but we were obligated to the schedule. The exhibit will be up for about a month, so if you get a chance to go see it i think you will enjoy it.

Here are a few photos…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

John Wilton and I collaborated on a September 11th memorial piece last year. We never showed it, but since our opening was on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy we displayed it at the opening.  This is a photo and the description of the piece.

 

 

 

 

Artists, John Wilton and John Wolfe created “nine/eleven” as a memorial to the innocent victims and the brave public servants who lost their lives in the events of that day.  The mission of the artists in the creation of this of this piece is to help keep the memories of that day in the forefront of your thoughts as you dream of a more peaceful world without these tragedies.

 

and while I am at it, here are two photos of pieces I finished this week. On is following the “Tropical Tree” theme that we used for the show and the other is a wall piece, just for fun.
