“The Best of FSG” at Cassleberry Art House

The Florida Sculptors Guild exhibit runs from Oct 9 th- Oct. 26th

Here is Bobbi Mastrangelo’s Artist Statement: “Seattle Tribute” features a rough carved texture of colorful waves, swimming gals and fish. On a lowly sewer cover, “The Circle of Life” evokes a Prayer for Protection.

The original gray iron sewer cover was designed by Puget Sound-based artist Betsy Best-Spadaro in 2001.  It depicts women, fish, orcas and a whale swimming in a circle around the central legend of “Sewer.” (Despite the idyllic depiction on this hatchcover, Seattle Public Utilities urges waymarkers not to attempt swimming in the city sewers. You will almost certainly be disappointed.)

Helen Anne Gately, Bobbi’s Seattle friend sent rubbings and photos of the original gray iron cover located on N 34th Street and Phinney Avenue to aid in her creation. Mastrangelo hand carved every detail in polystyrene builders’ foam. Bobbi’s environmental focus on water protection and conservation influenced her color palate of blues, greens, gold and silver.

A FREE opening reception will be held from 

6 – 8 p.m., Saturday, October 21st. 

Light refreshments will be provided.
