AdrianArleoTheRavenWoman

We adore the work of this amazing artist. And we are also very fortunate to own of one of her sculptures – a kneeling woman tenderly holding a raven over her heart. But look closer and see that the woman’s hand and arm have become the raven, whose nest rests upon her lap. Her full-of-wonder works evoke, for us, the very real connection we humans have with all of nature.

Quote from her website at  http://adrianarleo.com/>

“For me, every sculpture—even those in a related series—has its own individual, freestanding life. But when I finished this most recent body of work and looked for a feeling that encompassed it as a whole, I was struck by the concept of a harbinger: a dream, sign, or omen foreshadowing things to come. There is a quiet resistance, in this work, to the cultural and biological losses of our time. Some of the pieces reference the feeling of ancient Greek and Italian art; classical imagery has always provided an innate vocabulary. By focussing on older, more mysterious ways of seeing the world, edges of consciousness and deeper levels of awareness suggest themselves.” – Adrian Arleo

Destination Frankford Gallery

That amazing art group in Philadelphia appropriately named the Philadelphia Dumpster Divers arrives at the Destination Frankford pop-up gallery from April 19th, and their works will remain until the end of the show on July 26th, 2014.

Yes, indeed! Sixteen of our finest trash artists (including me, of course) will be exhibiting their wonderful flights of fancy made manifest, all deliciously curated by Leslie Kaufman. Where does all this crazy zaniness take place, you ask? Why at the corner of Frankford Avenue and Paul Street.

More info can be had for the small price of a mouse click by going to the Destination Frankford website or to the Philadelphia Dumpster Divers site.

Receptions & block parties: April 19, May 24, June 28.

My contribution to this lively exhibition is pictured below:
