Earlier this month we directed a children’s community art
project during ArtFest Fort Myers. We first sculpted a 7 foot bare tree with no
During the two day festival, we taught children how to sculpt leaves with masking tape, which they colored with markers and signed their names.
We were incredibly honored that the children then gave their hand made pieces of art to add to the tree.
All weekend long the tree grew it’s leaves for all to see.
We now have the tree back at our studio, where we will
finish it by applying layers of glue over the branches, to permanently secure
the leaves to the tree, and paint the trunk and branches. When we finish it, we
hope to have it on display and various locations in the area. We’ll be sure to
keep everyone informed of its whereabouts.
A new article, titled “Making Oddity and Enchantment”,
appears in the September – October issue of Gulf & Main magazine, that
describes a bit of our history and process of the art we create together. We’re
pretty proud of it. If you have a minute to read it, click on the images to to enlarge them.
Duals: A Member Exhibition is currently showing at DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts. We created new art especially for it. The dinos we made seemed a little scared and timid, so we gave them some masks to make them feel empowered. The masks can be removed, and even hung on a wall. From images of these little guys, we made an illustrative photomontage in the form of a diptych, especially for the Duals show. It will be up through August 6th. DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts is located at: 1400 Colonial Blvd, Ste 84 Fort Myers, FL 33907 239-590-8645

Happy to announce that Ocasiocasa will be occupying the 'white room' at Arts for ACT for the month of February! We've been been working hard to finish up all the pieces for this show, most of which have never been seen before. We are so excited.
