Mastrangelo’s “Buckeye Water Meter Cover”

Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Buckeye Water Meter” sculpture  relief will be on exhibit at The Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio.  It is especially meaningful for Bobbi to be accepted in this prestigious competition, because Youngstown Ohio was her birth place.  This years’ exhibit which features works in all two dimensional media, was judged by the well-known New Jersey painter, historian and curator, Gary T. Erbe.

This artist, Bobbi Mastrangelo, has once again proven her great skill in replicating iron grates. We see that the exhibit “Buckeye-of-Ohio”, (the name synonymous with the great State in which she shares such fond memories), has been built with much diligence to detail, coloring, contrast , and altogether is most admirable for an object which, until now, went unnoticed as being unattractive by most of us.

Dear Bobbi,
You are amazing in that you are getting more and more shows. Congratulations–I am very proud of you and happy for you.
You have made your dream come true.
Love to you and Al

Dear Bobbi,
I’m very proud of you, with “Water Works” sculptures, as a many award-winning artist.
“Water Works” and “Buckeye” are sure to be admirable Art Exhibits.
I wish I may live to visit them.

Way to go Bobbi.
You are an inspiration.

I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the internet shall be much more useful than ever before. “When the heart speaks, the mind finds it indecent to object.” by Milan Kundera.

I think about you often and wish the distances
were not so far. I love your work and find it original.
I love to see your new things from time to time.
