“The Clown Eater” was delivered for the June art show at R. Pela Gallery, entitled “Klown,” today. From the looks of art that had been delivered so far, it should be very interesting, and fun! Even if–or maybe especially if–you find clowns creepy. There are both 2D and 3D pieces in the show.
The event was written up this weekend in the local paper: http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/arts/articles/20130529gallery-glimpse-klown-phoenix-pela.html?nclick_check=1

A threesome of miniature chicken paintings is nearly done.
ART AND SCIENCE
My husband and I went to see the DaVinci exhibit at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix last week. Wonderful exhibit, worth seeing. Interesting info on the Mona Lisa, Last Supper, and his many innovative machines.
Also at the museum was an art-science display by David Durlach, of iron filings that “danced” to music. The piece was called “Dancing Iron Dust Trees.” Mesmerizing! My husband and I sat there and watched it thru all the songs, and when we got up, someone else immediately jumped in the chair to watch and listen. The little piles of iron filings really seem alive and look pettable, (which is probably why they are under a clear shield).
