sticks and stones

I am pleased to report that three of my pieces have been accepted for a show at Ciel Gallery in Charlotte, North Carolina! The show is called Sticks and Stones, featuring art created from natural elements, and runs from March 6th to May 1st. Apart from being included in the show, the exciting thing is that Jerzy and I are taking this opportunity to do a road trip, so I can attend the opening on March 6th. I've never been to North Carolina, so I'm really looking forward to the whole experience. It's about a two-day drive from here to there, and once we are there and I've delivered my pieces, we plan to explore the State a bit. So lots of driving! Below are my pieces...I consider them a triptych.

Congrats!
Charlotte is a great city, it was near the college I went to. I enjoyed looking at your work, I really like the way you work with organic materials.

i came here via Wayfaring Wanderer.
wow ! I love your work. Congratulations on the show.
I hope you enjoyed North Carolina. I visited Boone in the fall and told people it was one of the most charming little towns I've ever been to.
I will be back to visit your blog.

I guess you are on your "road trip" now hope you are having a good time.
When I think of "road trip" I think of Thelma and Louise but I guess it will not be quite like that.
I so love these works and really want to do some casting of paper in different shapes...off tomorrow for a weeks class with Amanda Degener so excited maybe it might happen soon.
