Stargarden exhibition was hosted by The DaVinci Alliance on September 1, 2017 from 6 to 9:30pm, and included the artwork of 23 artists from various parts of the nation. The artists were: Antonietta Kies, Phyllis Gorsen, Jessica Libor, Jingyi Wang, Richard Buchanan, Cassandra Bacon, Lindsay Rapp, Ting Ting Hsu, Caterine Sanchez, Nathan Durnin, Gabrielle Chapman, Haleigh Keen, Bryan Guglielmi, Julianna Wells, Karen Lowry, Erin Paulson, Alayne Abrahams, Charissa Schulze, Daniel Boyer, Marshall Jones, Bryant Girsch, Greg Fisher, and Bryan DeProspero.
The artwork was primarily 2 dimensional, although one sculpture was present: a fascinating pinhole-inspired tableau. The work all displayed a continuity in keeping with the ideas of stars, celestial movements, moonlit gardens, and the growth of earthly things contrasted with the eternal shimmer of the heavens.
The evening’s entertainment was provided by Seth Aaron Jones and Christy Irizarry, a Philadelphia based singer-songwriter performing duo. A starry, festive photo booth proved the perfect opportunity for visitors, collectors, and artists to pose and take a souvenir Polaroid home. Below are selected works from the show.
