Exhibits Celebrating the Natural World!

This spring seems to heralding art inspired by the natural world. 


The first exhibit, entitled Expressions of the Natural World: A Juried Exhibition, is located at the Monmouth Museum on the campus of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft. The exhibit is open from March 16 – May 4, 2014. 
Some of the highlights are:
Riccardo Berlingeri's work entitled Mimic, which is made from Recycled plastic water bottles. This was a new piece from 2014 in which Berlingeri melted the plastic water bottles.

This piece I purchased - Crow Hill is an etching by Patricia Wynne.   As contract artist for scientists at research organizations, her detail was impeccable. I look forward to seeing this piece every day.




My iPhone image does not do this piece, a graphite on paper drawing, justice. Carol A. O'Neill's piece, Fallen, is delicate and charming. She is also pictured here with me and my piece, the green encaustic piece paired with a real bird's nest.

Also at the show was friend and sculptor Amy Puccio. She is pictured here with her work, Avant Gourd, a wood mosaic piece.

Some other notable works:

Wendy Osterweil's Dawn at Birds' Gate, art quilt, silkscreen printed with fiber reactive dyes, machine quilted


Maria Lupo's Mossman, a sculpture made mixed media with Spanish moss.
