"Rocky Neck is home to one of the oldest continuously operating art colonies in the United States. Situated on a peninsula within Gloucester’s working harbor, Rocky Neck is known for its geographic beauty, its unique light, a rich cultural history and a spirited, supportive community. Plein air artists including Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Frank Duveneck, Childe Hassam, lived and worked on Rocky Neck in the 19th and early 20th centuries, inspired the Cape Ann style of American Impressionism, a critically important contribution to American art history."
I'm giggling that this country boy from the heartland is exhibiting at this wonderful gallery with my sculpture,"Silently and Light of Foot".
“Silently and Light of Foot” is a sculptural piece created from gifted but beloved used pointe shoes from the Newport Contemporary Ballet Company dancers, and a pre-civil war era shoe rack from one of Massachusetts's oldest mills. The marriage of the two beautiful objects reflects a subtle story of ‘light of foot’ and a reminder that we once weren’t, and then, were, and at some point, won’t be. . . .
