MODERN FOSSILS – UPCOMING SHOWS – CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE CALENDAR HERE! 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, THAT Artists JUDITH MARCHAND and DAVID HOROWITZ 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 river 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.
