the fun{gi} times

Ha! So much for regular programming. I guess there's not a lot of that around here anyway. I've been working on a piece for a studio/open house/holiday party this weekend. If I get some time this evening** I might set them up to take some pictures. In the gallery space they'll have mushrooms growing from the "logs". The felt is polyester (for those who aren't familiar with fabrics, felt was originally made from animal hair/wool).  I love toying with the idea of synthetic natural environments.

About the show: 

Regional Artists and Back to the Roots are presenting "Ephemeralization", a show of extreme mushroom growing! Each artist will be designing a unique housing for oyster mushroom kits. Join in this sustainable event and taste the future of growing food from art. There will be crafts for kids as well as entertainment, food trucks and chef demos. Event takes place in The French Broad Studios on friday December 9 beginning at 5 pm - 9 pm and Sat. Dec.10 from 10am -2 pm.

If you're close to Asheville and want to take part in the fun{gi} times, shoot me an email and I'll send you the details!

**Yeah, I know, that's a real gut buster. Who has free time in the middle of December?!
