Eartha by Donna Ross
July 10, 2021 - September 25, 2021
Say hello to a sculpture named Eartha – now in the Pelham Art Center Courtyard!
Eartha is an unconventional woven women. Her Armature was created by twisting and tying tomato cages and her torso is woven out of bath Lufas. Eartha was made to live in a garden where her hair flows free and she is glistening in the sun. Made with whimsy in mind, she is adorned with enchanted art findings. Her arms are butterfly cages and her chest is trellised with flowers. As the summer turns to fall, the Eartha installation will grow from a solo sculpture to a flourishing sculpture garden composed of community contributions.
