“‘No More Night’ emerged from my interest in the preservation of starlight. In addition to poor aesthetics, excessive energy use, and the disruption of ecosystems, studies have shown light pollution to have an adverse effect on our health and psychology. Like ‘No More Night’, much of my studio practice is an exploration of man’s intimate relationship and dependency on nature. I express these observations through sewn soft sculpture and installation. Yet, rather than create work that is pessimistic and disparaging, I highlight man’s intimate relationship and dependency through pieces that are whimsical, humorous, and engaging. ‘No More Night’ in particular, is a tongue and cheek illustration of an artificial light canopy in place of the stars.”

Open House will be held Saturday June 27th between 12-4pm.
Exciting news! I have opened up a new Etsy shop to sell small affordable soft sculpture anatomical hearts. Costs range from $40-$100 plus shipping! Most fabric is upcycled from salvaged fabric. If you've been hanging onto a sentimental piece of material or article of clothing and would like it re-purposed into a keepsake one of a kind soft sculpture, request a custom order!

Eco Soft Sculpture Workshop
reCreate Featured Artist Emily Schnellbacher will be teaching the basics of making soft sculptures from recycled and reclaimed materials. The complexity of each sculpture will vary to suite each participant’s age and skill level. Emily will have a sewing machine on hand to assist with any sculptures that need a machine. Participants may also bring their own sewing machines and/or come prepared to hand stitch so that you can take away your very own hand made soft sculpture at the end of the workshop!
$5 per person Space is limited, so call 267.997.0060 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to rsvp.
-The Resource Exchange will provide thread and needles, and participants may bring their own supplies or any materials they’d like to incorporate into their sculptures. A wide selection of low cost fabrics and supplies can also be purchased from re's inventory of reclaimed materials during the workshop.
Philadelphia Sculpture Gym and Gigantic Sequins paired writers & sculptors for a January 2015 gallery show called IMPOSSIBLE INSTRUCTIONS. For this show, writers wrote a piece (poetry, fiction, non-fiction, hybrid) that served as instructions for the artist to follow. Following these, the artist created a work of sculpture. The show will be up for all of January, and there will be a reading on the opening night of the show. The final pieces will be collected into a very limited edition chapbook.
The opening is Friday, January 9th from 6pm-9pm, with a reading by the writers at 7:30pm.
