My solo exhibition at the Tropical Audubon Society was a hugh success! I had so much fun! The Doc Thomas Historic house was a bit challenging, but well work the effort. We could not put any nails in the walls and due to the flammable vintage varnish on the walls we had to use low lighting.
Live music by Joanne Meagher on the front screen porch added so much to the opening. I love partnering with artists of all genres. I even invited student artists to participate.
The concept behind my collection is to introduce the idea of growing food all around us in public spaces. Each sculpture uses grocery bag paper to represent our current relationship with food. Read more on my website at nancymartini.com
