Crocheted Vessels and Reconstructed Art ~Three-Dimensional Works

From Oct. 20 through Nov. 20, NYFA artist Mary Ann Lomonaco will show her artworks in the glass vitrine cases in the Foyer of the Mindy Ross Gallery in Kaplan Hall. Crocheted Vessels and Reconstructed Art ~Three-Dimensional Works continues the Artists in Excellence series with pieces of various sizes, colors, and shapes. All of the works are made from recycled or repurposed materials.

“My three-dimensional mixed media constructions are made from recycled, reclaimed, reconstructed “stuff” using a variety of techniques and materials… Transformation for me involves discovering the potential... the endless possibilities...” states Lomonaco.
