These pieces are for a show in North Carolina. Artists were invited to create lanterns with the concept of fall...or moving toward fall/darkness. I left one raw, while the the other piece I gave a rust patina. This is picture frame wire, which I find amusing because it's something that is usually behind a painting!
Art of Illumination Exhibition
November 21 - December 6, 2015
Art of Illumination draws inspiration from traditional lantern festivals, marking the transitional moment of season’s change and year’s end, reflecting on the past while garnering energy for the future. With the lanterns illuminating both the darkness of longer nights and beginnings of the future ahead, the event will give rise to a shared experience of reflection and anticipation. This inaugural 2015 festival and exhibition will launch a new CAM tradition expected to grow with the museum and the community. CAM recognizes the crucial role of artists and art in creating an exceptional quality of life for a community. Art, like a lantern, illuminates the mystery, empathy and wonder of human existence.
