Bobbi Mastrangelo’s “Florida Citrus 467-1” on Exhibit in St. James NY October 10 – Jan. 8, 2016

The Member Artist Showcase by the Smithtown Township Arts Council features unique original art displayed in the lovely historic Mills Pond House. A former resident of St. James and then Port Jefferson, Bobbi has maintained her membership and participates annually in their members’ show.

“Florida Citrus 467-1” is a departure from her normal street scenes, but because she can’t visit the exhibition, she sent the “Flavor of Florida” instead. This mixed media relief artistically represents the vital elements for Florida’s Dominant Crop: Light, (for sun) water, soil, seeds and its most famous product: oranges.

Here are the step by step photos and story of its creation:

That’s cool that its on display up there. Really looks great!
As for me, I haven’t done any glass since spring. The summer heat just wouldn’t quit. I should get things started back up in a couple weeks.
Heading north for a short time to see family and then get the fires going.
Take care.

Hi Bobbi — we exhibited together at a PJ Village gallery.
I recognized your signature work at STAC this week.

Hi Bobbi,
I went to Mills Pond House today to see what you had sent to the show!!! I was not disappointed! Your Florida Citrus was very well displayed and so well done! It was with other sculptures. Yours was very professionally done.

I like the theme that you present in your piece. I also like the write up that you gave for us to read! It was fun to see your latest from the land that you now live!!! Thanks for a fun afternoon!!!

Your Former Neighbor,
