Green is a happenin' color

One of my sculptures has been chosen for another exhibit entitled
"The Green Exhibit" at Philadelphia's City Hall.
The theme of this show which is for professional artists working in and around Philadelphia and it features artwork which is based on the environment.
The show runs from October 13- January 23, 2009 (as in "NINE"!)
The opening is Thursday, October 23, from 5-7.


In case you aren't able to get there, here is the piece I am showing:

"Growth Where You Least Expect It"

11.5”h x 18”w x 4”d
Flameworked glass tubing, aluminum “t”, silicon,
grass (fescue) seed

...and my artist's statement:

Wikipedia lists 16 pages of extinct plants. As we continue to poison our environment and contribute to global warming, everyday symbols of nature may become a distant collective memory. This work pays homage to the common fescue seed that is the beginning of the life cycle of a blade of grass. Entitled “Growth Where you Least Expect It” serves as a tribute to the stamina of nature under dire circumstances. Let’s hope that is does not become symbolic of the grass we used to know.
