Summer Events!

This Weekend! 
August 3rd First Friday's in SOWA 5:30- 8:30

This is a show I organized for our gallery in Boston. I am so very proud of the work bringing these two very different arts - poetry and sculpture - into collaboration.

Breath and Matter Exhibition at the Boston Sculptors Gallery featuring 24 artists and poets. Join us for a reception Friday August 3rd from 5:30p-8:30p. The show is up through August 12th, 2018. I collaborated with Ernestine Hayes, the writer Laureate of Alaska. You can see a preview of our collaboration online. Donna Dodson worked closely with Danielle Legros Georges, the Poet Laureate of Boston and she will be reading on Wednesday July 18th.

August 4th Saturday The Beacon on Head Island 2-4

The Myth Makers public artwork will initiate the first project of the new Harborwalk Artist in Residence (AIR) program. Donna Dodson and I created The Beacon, a 20’ tall bamboo sculpture. Inspired by the Osprey, the Beacon is a tribute to Rachel Carson and her ecological restoration efforts in Boston and beyond.  The Osprey is a survivor and adapter in our rapidly evolving human landscape. Devastated by DDT poisoning, these skilled fish hawks are recovering from the brink of extinction, and are an inspiring example of the role humans can play in restoring balance when we engage the living world around us.

We will host an Open Studios workshop on Saturday August 4th at 2pm at the site of the sculpture on Head Island. Park at the entrance to Head Island near the intersection of Farragut Road and William J Day Boulevard in South Boston. In the late summer the Beacon will migrate to the Charlestown Navy Yard where it will be on view until Friday November 16th.

An Installation by

Andy Moerlein @ Haskell Public Gardens New Bedford

In collaboration with Master Horticulturist, Kristin McCullin and Artist/Curator Jess Bregoli 

This sculpture is an installation made from bamboo. It features a enclosed yet permeable cavern of shapes. Haskell Gardens Master Horticulturist, Kristin McCullin has planted a fun variety of climbing vines that are not shown above, Dutchman's Pipe, Hops, Gourds, and Clematis.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the New Bedford Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. Additional funding from the Trustees.

Bring your own picnic and join in lawn games. I will be the featured artist.
