There is opportunity to shift structural language when a person is invited to play with unexpected materials without any expectations. Throughout the weekend of JCAST, Sky Garden Gallery and Theda Sandiford invite you to make strings of beads from recycled bottle caps.

Drawing inspiration from various beading traditions, mixing different bottle caps to make a string of colorful oversized beaded necklaces. Your creation will become a part of an upcoming installation celebrating personal adornment.

The Great Resignation

McCarty is living OUR best life in St. Croix. He left behind Wall Street and Savile Row Suits for the Caribbean Sea and cargo shorts.

He gifted me his collection of vintage silk ties for art supplies. And has not looked back on his old life at his Bloomberg terminal.

The Great Resignation is in honor of all the people who have chosen to honor themselves over their toxic work environments and take a leap of faith and Quit.

About the Exhibition:
The artists whose works are assembled all take the mantle of exploring the potential of multiple mediums at once. The possibilities opened by this project multiply wonderfully, as seen by the diversity of works on view, all of which find an expression of vitality through their mediums. Perhaps these artists working with mixed media are finding a way to reaffirm our bodily connection. They have a way of bringing out the physicality of their materials in the medium’s interactions, in divergent forms. We find surprising juxtapositions or forms springing out of their prior uses. Though in different ways, the works presented allude to the body: the presence of the artist’s hand in placing objects just so; suggestive forms; organic and inorganic decay; human detritus, and more.

Future Perfect/Imperfect: The Next Century.

My piece, “Purple Fiesta”” chosen by juror, Lilly Wei, is included in the upcoming exhibit. Future Perfect/Imperfect: The Next Century.

The opening reception is Saturday, April 30, 5:00- 7:00pm.
