Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Inside 52GA-R” included in 25th Annual All Florida Juried Exhibit Sept. 25 – Nov. 14, 2015 in Stuart Florida.

Saturday, September 12th, 2015

“The Arts Council of Martin County is excited to be hosting this fantastic celebration of All-Florida Art in the Court House Cultural Center.  The works have been personally selected by our juror Josh Davis to create a show that reflects the finest in Florida Art,” noted Nancy K Turrell, executive director.

“Inside 52GA-R”

“Inside 52GA-R” is a bit of a departure from the rest of  Mastrangelo’s sculpture relief pieces, because is presents a look at the underside of a manhole cover: an underground view. “Inside 52GA-R” was a prize winner at Orlando Museum of Art’s 1st Thursdays and exhibited with “The Best of The Best” at The Mayor’s Gallery at City Hall in Orlando Florida in 2014.

Bobbi is pleased to have this special piece selected for this prestigious exhibit.

Joshua Hunter Davis, juror for the show, is an artist from South Florida whose subjects range from industrial sites to machine animal hybrids. Though Davis did not grow up in Detroit or Newark or any other major city of industry, his preference for all things industrial and mechanical was the inevitable result of growing up in the family business of water and sewer plant operation.

Mastrangelo’s Art of sewer covers and water covers relates to the Davis family business. Joshua Davis Hunter currently works as an adjunct instructor in South Florida and exhibits work throughout the area.

2015 NPCW “The City Beautiful” (Orlando, Florida) by Bobbi Mastrangelo

The City Beautiful

NPCW 2015 “The City Beautiful”

“The City Beautiful is the third of my Florida Post Cards Trio for NPCW.  Orlando, The Theme Park Capital of the World, and one of our most visited cities, appealed to me for its dedication to the Arts.

Orlando’s impressive City Hall houses two public art galleries. The Terrace Gallery features national and international artists and collections, as well as Florida artists of renown. The Mayor’s 3rd Floor Gallery is specifically dedicated to Central Florida artists. Supported by private philanthropy, See Art Orlando is the permanent installation of nine contemporary public art sculptures in Downtown Orlando.

During the summer of 2014, my art was displayed on the third floor Mayor’s Gallery at City Hall with all the winners of Orlando Museum of Art’s First Thursday’s Exhibition: “Best of the Best” http://bobbimastrangelo.com/MyNews/?p=4377 

The beautiful circular gallery space was impressive. The colorful City Logo posted next to the Mayor” Door inspired me. The actual city logo-manhole cover out on the streets is not colored, just plain rust-toned. So, influenced by “The City Beautiful” and the colorful Japanese Manhole Covers, I created my first manhole cover sculpture in color and posted the image on my 2015 NPCW Post Card.

National Post Card Week is celebrated annually during the first full week of May. Since 1991, I have been a participant, sending out a post card that is usually based on one of my manhole cover relief works.http://bobbimastrangelo.com/postcards.php  Here is The Mastrangelo National Post Card Week Collection on Pinterest :https://www.pinterest.com/bmastrangelo/npcw-collection-for-bobbi-mastrangelo

I exchange post cards with over 130 post card pen pals and save their creations in binder notebooks. Demaris Swint has posted the 2015 post cards for  National Post Card Week on this site: http://www.nationalpostcardweek.com/2015.php
