This Saturday "Invasive ll" will debut in North Hills Art Center's show, 'Art of the Earth'. This piece is 24 x 18, it is fragmented into 6 pieces - 3 up, 3 down. It is pictured in my backyard among its inspiration. Yep - I have bamboo in my backyard, yep - it's invasive. Trust me, buy the painting, do not plant your own bamboo. In my defense, the bamboo lived here before I did. I just try to keep it at bay, it's not easy.
All sales from the "Art of the Earth" show benefit Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve, and the artist. I wanted to submit 'Invasive ll' for this event, because Beechwood Farms works hard to educate the public about the danger of invasive species. My kids and I spend a lot of time at Beechwood. We even enjoyed visiting the goats hired to clean up some invasive plants a couple of years ago.
'Invasive ll' is mounted on reclaimed elections signs (see pervious posts to learn more) making it truly Art of the Earth.
I will have 2 other works in the show too - 'The Thaw' and 'Seagulls at Dusk'. These paintings are also mounted on reclaimed election signs.
I am one of 70 artists on exhibit in this show of 153 pieces - That's a LOT of Earth love.
One more note - A free ASWP Household membership ($50.00 value) is included with the purchase of any artwork from this show, courtesy of the Audubon Society of Western PA.
