  • Anatsui work gives me chills and makes me pause to consider and reconsider

    — Colleen

  • These pieces are a beautiful dicotomy
    between the organic , fluid nature of the forms with the juxtaposition of clearly man made ,industrial materials.it makes me feel that man and nature can survive together if we co-exist in art and share a bond of creation rather than destruction.

    — Amy Miller

  • We my granddaughter and I loved the interactive parts of the show nearest amazed by the number of parts in each piece. We are saving strings to used in creation of art.

  • I was just telling my husband that I could feel an energy from his pieces. The textures, colors and the way the objects are placed and draped add to that sense of an energy or presence.
