Supporting Artist Friends

This past Friday night I had the opportunity to support some of my artist friends at their opening reception. Sandra Koberlein and Gail Scuderi were showing their artwork in their joint exhibition "Transformed by Heat" at Da Vinci Art Alliance in Philadelphia.

"In the exhibit, Sandra Koberlein and Gail Scuderi’s works will blend together, emphasizing the materials and processes of their creations. Both artists approach their process from similar perspectives, considering the environment, and incorporating earthen materials transformed by heat. The works created for this exhibit will explore ideas about Earth and its sustainability. The aromatic scent of honeyed beeswax, along with tactile, glistening surfaces, intricate markings and gleaming colors, will resonate the viewer’s senses with sensual materiality."

Congratulations to Gail and Sandra on a beautiful exhibition!
