Connecticut Art Show to Benefit

This fieldstone and metal sculpture by Paul Shampine is titled "Genesis."

Renowned artist Paul Shampine will host a one-man show in Connecticut this coming Sunday afternoon, Oct. 17, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the SafeLawns Foundation. I’ll be on hand for the show and happy to answer lawn care questions during the afternoon event scheduled for 2-4 p.m. All of the show’s attendees will receive a free copy of our lawn signs and how-to DVDs.

Paul Shampine will be unveiling the first new show of his works in several years. A sculptural “pod” series titled “Embryonic Armour,” the works draw a strong influence from nature — specifically life delivery vessels and embryo protecting mechanisms such as seeds, seed pods, tubers and spore-like forms. Paul uses natural and recycled materials such as fieldstone, fallen red oak, copper, steel and glass slag from Florence Italy. The piece picture above, “Genesis,” is a classic example of Paul’s provocative style.

Here are the show details:
October 17, 2-4 p.m.,
Private Residence:
9 John Beach Road
Newtown, CT.

We hope to see you there for a great event!
