Clay Glass Metal Stone Cooperative Gallery
The Strong Sun-Moon
The First Full Moon of the Summer
Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery celebrates the First Full Moon of the summer, an artistic interpretation of the folklore and myth surrounding summer moons. Legends and ceremonies abound throughout the cultures of the planet, both ancient and modern. The first full moon of the summer is called the “Strong Sun Moon,” and incorporates Nature and Earth elements. The element of “water” represents the Frog Clan, carnelian gemstones represent “earth” and the Flicker represents the journey to home and hearth.
The works of Madeline Gallo, Tracy Rosof-Petersen, Mary Catello, Teri Salamoni, Rick Cohen and Kathleen Kirschner take these earth elements, pay homage to the moon and its earth legends in interpretation of its phase and the season.
“J” Street Bakery, Lake Worth’s newest “find”, has joined forces with the gallery in offering a wide variety of samples of their amazing baked goods during the wine and cheese reception. Lorraine Bowe, having left her Lake Worth beach shop after thirty-three years, is a gallery artist who has re-opened her shop on “J” street as well. She will be offering full moon works at both the gallery and her new studio/store.
