Artists Choice IV: the Spring show at WSCC

Posted by C Scheftic on 2021/04/05

Like so many of us over the last year, I have missed getting together in person with a lot of my usual people although, except for the worst of winter, I have been able to share outside activities with many of the local ones.  In another way though, I have missed even more all the different, random people I would interact with at the Wilkins School Community Center (WSCC) where I have my studio.   

Still, I am very happy to have two pieces in WSCC’s current exhibit, Artists Choice IV, even though is yet another virtual show.  It looks as though I have the only 3D entries in this one! There are two pendants and, once again, I was able to make both of them reversible!

I Will Always Hold a Piece of Your Heart in Mine has two golden-bronze (“brilliant bronze”) hearts, one nestled inside the other, and hangs on a gold-plated chain.  It is fully reversible: you can wear it with the pairing facing forward, or you can turn the chain around to keep the little one snuggled in, closer to your own heart.  To me, the difference in the size of the hearts indicates a visual illusion, a sort of perspective, where the smaller one represents the heart of someone at a distance, for the moment at least, but the two are still firmly anchored together.  

What do you see in it?

Spring is Peeking Out at Last! is another reversible bead, this time a hollow one made from fine silver (.999).  One side is textured with an array of cute little spring blossoms.  The other side shows a different flower eagerly peeking out through an opening in the ground.  Like so many of us, all of the flowers are ready to get out into the sunshine and to get on with their lives!

What are your plans for this spring, and beyond?!
