David and Judith will welcome visitors on Saturday, May 1 & Sunday, May 2 from 11 AM to 5 PM.

Mankind’s interaction with its natural environment is the basis and subject of this work. Just as natural fossils are the imprints of prehistoric life on earth, Judith and David have created “Modern Fossils”: pieces that ponder the substances we are currently leaving behind in our environment, to be unearthed far in the future.

These artists were inspired by the embellished metal manhole and storm drain covers that are found in their local cities and towns. With these in mind, they create original plaster artworks, which represent their community’s impact on the waterways that sustain us and give us life. During clean-ups of local waterway environments, these artists collect both natural materials and man-made detritus, which they then use to create the images in their pieces. The resulting wall-hangings embody the modern dilemma of mankind’s struggle to maintain a balanced relationship with nature. Their artworks also proclaim the vital environmental message stressing the necessity of keeping our waterways clean and healthy. Modern Fossils have their roots in Judith’s love for the environment and her local river town community, combined with David’s 20+ years of experience in creating and casting environmental sculptures in his native NYC and in cities around the world.

I am an enthusiastic mix of biologist and artist. While building the scientific career, I pursued my creative interests as well. That included studying printmaking, 2D design, photography, ceramics, jewelry design and enameling.

I make one-of-a-kind and limited edition jewelry in silver, enamels, beads and gemstones. It’s inspired by strange oceanic forms, and the things we see in the garden, like birds and flowers.

Mixed media suits me best for 2-dimensional work, with the use of acrylics, inks, pencils, papers and photo transfer techniques. My artwork is based on the photographic material I continuously accumulate.

The work I make is a joyful reflection of the forms and colors around us. I want to capture the fleeting exuberance of flowers, beauty of ornate textiles in a composition, decadent urban decay, and people being in their environment.

There are no restraints, only a happy mess of colorful patterns surrounding interesting objects, a person, or an occasional critter.

These pieces are small intimate worlds that draw you near, both into the art itself and inward to your own true Self.

Life on Earth is a great play of opposites where both immense joys and unspeakable tragedies are experienced. These pieces are a reminder of the only true sanctuary, within.
