Come see me this month at Gorse Mill Studios in Needham, Massachusetts!
I’m having an outdoor art exhibit at Gorse Mill Studios throughout the month of June, with a free puppet show — now rescheduled to Saturday June 24th at 3:00 PM. The exhibit entitled “Insects in the Garden” features giant cartoon insects around the lawn and garden at Gorse Mill Studios, 31 Thorpe Road, Needham, MA.
The insects in the exhibit, cut from plywood and painted with bright colors, are labeled with fun facts about each one. I’m hoping this exhibit will help people appreciate insects in a whole new way. Insects are usually overlooked because they’re so small, that’s why I wanted to make them really big and approachable. They’re really amazing creatures, and so important to our environment. They’re the unsung heroes of the natural world.
Here is an interview with me on the Needham Channel:
In conjunction with the exhibit, I’m performing a free puppet show. “Insect Tales: Phinni and the Wild Patch” tells the story of four insect friends who search for a new home after their meadow is destroyed by a storm. Visitors may bring their own chairs or blankets.
The exhibit will be on display throughout the month of June. Visitors can stop by anytime to see the giant insects and take photos with them.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Needham Council for Arts and Culture, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
