At the entrance is a haul of garbage, thankfully cleaned off.
|When coral is white, |
it has been bleached and is dead.
A number of pieces are wildly colorful, with all kinds of shapes. A trip to the aquarium reminds me that these pieces aren't that far from reality!
|There is a Muppet/Dr. Suess quality to much of the exhibit. |
But then, reality is like that, sometimes.
|Each case included a plaque with the names of the people |
who made the pieces, along with where they came from.
Small groups of pieces allow the viewer to focus on the
techniques used, which include beading, netting, knitting,
macrame, and mixed media assemblies in addition to the focus
I was surprised that there were no souvenirs to buy. I would have been happy to buy a hook commemorating the exhibit/gallery. But I guess that just makes me a consumer. Oh dear.
