NC Botanical Garden Sculpture Show Through December

Sculpture in the Garden continues until December 16

Here is my exhibit in the garden -- Regrets, I've had a few.
This ornithological assemblage was created in concrete and steel. A family of regrettable expressions, these “rebirds”, named for their disproportionately long legs sculpted in rebar, remind us of the many avoidable foibles that life presents. The largest, “A Greater Regret”, will dominate a garden space. The slightly smaller and less obtrusive, “A Lesser Regret”. The coming of age Regret is “A Youthful Indiscretion”. The three babies are “Minor Mistakes”.
Be sure to visit the Garden -- It is an especially good sculpture show this year.

Animal-Lover Armstrong Exhibits at Banana Factory

Kathryn Greenslade Armstrong has just participated in an Artsquest member show at Bethleham Pensylvania's Banana Factory. She exhibited two acrylic paintings on canvas -- one called "Alpha's Shadow" is a remembrance of a trip with her family to a wolf preserve -- the other, "Three Little Cows" is a reflecton of her Lehigh Valley rural environs.

"I LOVE animals! All kinds of animals! Especially dogs," Armstrong asserts. "I have my own furbaby, Juno, a senior Siberian Husky, and I am active in Siberian Husky rescue. My greatest inspiration comes from animals and nature."

Armstrong is a classically trained graphic designer with a BFA from New York's Parson School of Design. She also has a certification in Web Technology from Allentown Business School. After working for years in publishing, primarily in health care, she currently applies her creativity to marketing and public affairs at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown Pensylvania.

Kathryn Armstrong lives in Makungie PA with her husband Steve and daughter Nicole.
