NAWA Special Exhibit: Empress of the Garden
I am so pleased to announce that my sculpture, Empress of the Garden, has been chosen by the National Association of Women Artists jury for inclusion in the Innovative Crafts online exhibition from June 1, 2017 -August 1, 2017.
This, my latest sculpture, arrived recently at this Broad Street gallery.
See photos on my blog of works in the gallery.
Elan Vital, a seven foot by eight foot porcelain sculpture which I was commissioned to create for the London House Hotel, Chicago, is now on public display.
The work comprises more than 300 individual, hand-formed, porcelain floral sculptures, each between one and three inches in diameter. To celebrate the new life being given to this architectural landmark, I titled it Elan Vital, which means Life Force. Philosopher Henri Bergson hypothesized this to be the principle force propelling regeneration and evolution in nature.
The London House Hotel, built in 1923 and designed by renowned architect Alfred S. Alschuler, is one of the "Big Four" skyscrapers surrounding the Michigan Avenue Bridge at the Chicago River.
Here is the link to the hotel and the actual area where my work is hung.
