I thought since I was on the topic of art and ducks, it would be a perfect time to spread the word about a gallery show that includes-what else-but rubber ducks! My friend Lucy Sceery will exhibit her duck-a-licious artwork at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center. She combines her artistic talent with her rubber duck fancy to create artwork for the exhibit.
She uses her ducks as a metaphor for humanity, for each person’s individuality. For Sitting Duck, she designed and built more than 100 little Adirondack chairs, painting each to go with the duck that would occupy it. She arranges ducks and chairs to suit the architecture of each museum or gallery where they appear.
Lucy also has some pressed duck artworks in the show as seen below. Don’t worry fellow duck fans. No rubber ducks were harmed in the making of this piece. Rubber ducks have a way of “bouncing” back…as they are rubber
The exhibit runs from April 9-July 3, 2011 at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Brattleboro, Vermont. For more info on this exhibit visit http://www.brattleboromuseum.org/.
