On October 12, 1998 the News 12 Team: Sara Muller, Reporter and Bryan Kane, Videographer interviewed me at Arline Hershberg’s Prism Gallery in Port Jefferson. It was a One Woman Exhibition and my sculpture relief pieces, works on canvas and hand made paper filled both floors of the gallery.
They asked me to explain how I created my relief works and printed my embossments on hand made paper.

Then we took the interview out on Main Street to see the manhole covers that had been painted green and the water covers that were painted blue by Port Jefferson Students for the Maritime Festival.

Searching one’s name on the internet often yields surprises, like finding myself as a featured artist on The Trashmanian Devil Web Site. Truthfully, I am delighted to discover others who are passionate about pride in our environment. I captured a few sentences of what he wrote about me:
“Bobbi Mastrangelo is best known for her great grates–a body of work based on manhole covers.
Thanks to Bobbi, the Trashman no longer misses the beauty that is right under his feet when he’s on his daily litter-run.”
I created about ten of these small prints on hand made paper, some with litter and some without. The Trashman owns one of my prints without litter which you can view on his web site. Here is another one of mine, with litter added.
“No Litter, When?”
