Meet Sailor Jerry

Sailor Jerry is at the FCCA Show this month. He is riding on a little "boat" made from an old filmstrip projector.

He has a lot of navigation equipment to help him get where he's going.

In his well in the front, he has the catch of the day - an octopus. In my next post, I'll show you "what lies beneath!".

Cabinet of Curiosities Show

It's show time! My Cabinet of Curiosities Show has been hung in the Members Gallery at the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts.
The opening is this Friday, September 7, 2012 from 6-8:30 pm.
Here is a sneak peek at the show:
Details of "Royal American Traveling Circus"
 The low ceilings and rustic walls are the perfect background for these pieces.
FCCA is "the place by the river where art and history meet." Indeed, FCCA is not only an art center; it is the caretaker organization for one of Fredericksburg’s historic buildings called the Silversmith's House, circa 1785. The brick filled half-timbered structure is a nice example of a middle-class family’s home in the era just after the Revolutionary War. The property is also the site of Fredericksburg’s first Fourth of July celebration in 1805 and was used as a forward Union hospital during both Civil War battles for Fredericksburg. 
I'll be posting more photos of pieces as the show continues.
