The five sculptors featured in this exhibition engage in theact of foraging as a means of connecting with their surroundings. Whether itinvolves rummaging through a trash can, exploring a hardware store, visiting acraft shop, or simply observing the side of the road, these artists perceivethe potential for artistic expression in unexpected places.
The title of the exhibition comes from an orange mushroom with a particularly colorful common name: “Hairy Nuts Disco,” which when translated into Latin, becomes Pilosus nuces orbis. Click here to see a pdf of the exhibition catalogue, including an essay by Shana Nys Dambrot.
