'Locusts' opens at Sweetwater Center for the Art's 'Wild Things' show

Last Friday, Sweetwater Center for the Arts held a reception for their 'Wild Things' exhibition. My piece Locusts was in the show. Here it is next to Cynthia Shaffer's Twister & Yahtzee, made from the feathers of her pet pigeons.

Cynthia curated the exhibition and chose the location for my work - she wanted it crawling behind and up things like real insects!

 The exhibition features work by a wonderful and varied crew of artists in many media, including my friends Randie Snow and Kyle Ethan Fischer. Some unexpected stars of the show were real-life wild things brought in by the National Aviary, much to my surprise and delight! Here is an African Penguin:

And here's one of their Eurasian Eagle Owls, Gandalf. He was a little cranky so he got a nice chicken foot to munch on.

'Wild Things' will be up until June 21st, so check it out if you're in the area!
