Terrarium in Upcoming Crosstown Arts Exhibit

I have a terrarium in the upcoming exhibit, Homeward Bound, opening Friday December 14, 2018, at  Crosstown Arts, reception 6-8 pm

You can read more about the exhibit here: Homeward Bound

Although all terries are homes, the piece I submitted is a memory of an imaginary home I’ve visited many times since I was a lonely kid with my nose in a book.  “Mermaid’s Cove “ was almost like a nightclub  in JM Barrie’s Peter Pan, where Peter would go play with the flirtatious sea maidens, leaving Wendy at home  to feed the Lost Boys and get them to bed.

This is a young terrarium, still in its first growth; it will need careful trimming to maintain the design over the years.  This is the piece which I planted this summer on The Family Plot television show.  You can view the segment here Nancy Builds a Terry on The Family Plot

 

About six weeks after planting, I began shaping the terrain and adding details

 

 

Here she is in mid-September, three months old. You will see how much more she has grown by December, and will need to be trimmed by the end of the exhibit.

 

If you want to learn more about these fascinating creations or get one of your own, you can send me an email or call 901-828-3685.    Come to my Open House Show and Sale on Sunday December 16 from noon to four p.m., too, at 700 North Belvedere in Midtown.
