Fairy House Exhibit

at Highfield Hall Falmouth MA 

OpenDivine Awakening_Tessa D'Agostino_24inx48in_mixed media-April 2014-Cultural Center of Cape Coding Reception on June 28th, 1:00 pm

Tessa is currently building a 5 foot tall fairy house she has titled “Fane of Thearsingri.” Her intentions are continually evolving but she has stated that “Thearsingri” her fairy, has a very bad habit of collecting odd and end things. Her house is a sort of fairy hoard of all Thearsingri’s muses. Tessa said Thearsingri is known to ride her bicycle around small patches of forest that barely reside between many residential neighborhoods nearby. Tessa claims to have seen Thearsingri sneaking around the outskirts of people’s yards collecting what odd and end things she finds.. always careful to not get too close. “She has really gotten out of hand with this habit,” Tessa says, “I don’t know where she thinks she’s gonna put all this stuff!”

This fairy house is sure to be a majestic hoot!  Stay tuned for pics!

All About Seven Invitation front resized   ALL ABOUT sEVEn: A Multi-media Exhibit by 49 Cape Women Artists Curated by Shawn Nelson Dahlstrom

At the Cape Cod Museum of Art 60 Hope Lane, off Route 6A Dennis, MA 02638

February 14 – March 30th

  *Opening Reception: March 1, 2014

For this show I was randomly assigned to be a part of the group themed ” Seven Sisters, Pleiades Constellation”.  Below is a piece of my writing and a slide show of my sculpture “Freeing The Light” that I created inspired by this theme.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“For many ancient, indigenous cultures Pleiades was a source of timekeeping and also helped predict a season’s harvest. From the perspective of an ancient tribesperson, I could only imagine ceremoniously looking up for guidance, to find one these stars missing. This sculpture embodies the deep spiritual energy of paying homage to this fallen star.” -Tessa D’Agostino

This exhibition showcases the work of 49 women from across the Cape, working in a variety of media: painting, printmaking, glass, fiber, mixed media, sculpture, encaustic, and conceptual. The women range in age from 22-82 and include both emerging and well-established artists.

Seven groups of seven have spent a full year working on their selected themes on which they based their work. The seven themes are: Seven Sisters, Pleiades Constellation; Seven Deadly Sins or Not; Seven Elements; Seventh Generation from Native American lore; Seven Intentions; Seven Colors of the Visible Spectrum; Formal 7.
