The showing will start at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday 3/1/2008.
Lynn Di Nino is rumored to have her own version of Tacomic on some co-working locals. We will see.
(Some local art buyers outside of The Helm gallery.)
The juried show will feature work from:
Imagination and humour take the forefront in the illustrative world of R.R. Anderson.
Discarded packaging materials and oops paint come together to form a floating plastic landscape. Blue’s usual panache will be on display in this unique installation.
Plastic bags are the medium that Lucy Carpenter has chosen for her large-scale sculptures of human organs. The work serves as a reminder of the unnecessary waste that is currently entering our food chain via plastic-eating sea life.
Cuff works with fragmented narrative in a series of twenty-four small oil panels. The paintings ask the viewer to fill the gaps in the story.
Lynn Di Nino
Drawing inspiration from a past trip to Cuba, Di Nino will be showing humorous papier-mache icons of local celebrities that grace our small city.
The only photographer in the show, Giordano uses a Japanese toy camera to capture pictures that are an unlikely combination of bright and quiet.
Jost combines tree silhouettes and collage to beautifully illustrate the biological connection that all living things share.
Mulligan finds junked wood in the street and combines it in very nicely arranged minimalist assemblage pieces.
A simple phrase hovers off the wall in Sinding’s word-based installation. The work attempts to utilize the direct affect that words have to coax the viewer towards self betterment.
Amy will be displaying her first quilt. Painstakingly crafted, the quilt is beautiful.

Interesting. Perhaps they can be introduced to the internets.
