In An Octopus' Garden, in the Shade!


This weekend I played at such a fun art opening at the Norwood Flynn Gallery.  It was called, "Exquisite Creatures 2: The Mermaid and Octopus."  My friend, Katrina Doran, was the curator for the show.  I met her years ago when she taught a mosaics class that I took at the Creative Arts Center.


There was actually a real live mermaid there!  Unfortunately, I never got a picture of her.  But this one is nice, huh?!

 


This one's not a mermaid, but she's some sort of sea creature and quite colorful!



There were a few mosaic pieces I really loved...



There were even a few items I'd love to wear...



And a few I'd love to eat...  (the first picture is of a work of art made entirely of macaroni, the second is a cake!!)



  And at the end of the night, Sarah and I were awarded Octopus' to take home as a memento!

Dear Kerri-thanks for stopping by my blog! You can pick up Artful Blogger at a Borders or Barnes and Noble. It is a little pricey but.....SO WORTH IT! A treat. It changed the way I blog, gives me inspiration ....ideas and eye candy. It's put out by Somerset House.
