Green Exhibit

Shrine for a Green Magic Stone with Critics
by Frank McEntire

McEntire scours garage sales, thrift stores and salvage yards for discarded things magical, miraculous and spiritual. Angels, crucifixes, miniature temples, vestments, scriptures, prayer and hymn books; small figures of Christ, Hindu gods, the Virgin Mary, the Angel Moroni and Buddha; also things banal: wooden boxes, farm implements, lenses, mirrors, pop icon figurines, mannequin parts, feathers, embroidered cloth, traps, cages, sticks, stones, old typewriters and bones; and things not so banal: a bird wing, a stuffed rabbit head, a World War II gas mask and a divining rod. These crowd his studio until they whisper a voice of spiritual renewal, inspiring an assemblage of objects sacred and ordinary, born again in exultant layers of the undogmatized divine: meditations, incantations, visions, blessings, celebrations, imaginations, divinations, salvations, exaltations.

This is the third piece of the series, the three Zarya's are the guardian goddesses in Slavic Mythology. Zara-Evening, closes the gates of heaven each night as the sun returns home.

As we were building this beautiful piece, Jeanne mentioned that when you get it right, you just can't quit smiling as you build a great window. The background glass is a clear that has swirls a movement throughout the glass.

I Shot an Elk!

I bet that got your attention. As I have never gone hunting, and don't know that I will, having shot an elk is a big deal! Now in all fairness the shooting I did was with a camera and I did no harm to the elk (however someone else did). My client, Steve Bartholomew does wood carving and had a base for this elk that he needed documented for a brochure. I must say, these critters are BIG! I have seen them in the wild on a number of times but with no reference to say a 3'0" door or an 8' ceiling it is hard to judge their scale. This guy was so massive that we could not even get him into my studio. I ended up shooting him next door at the Academy Real Estate office. Thanks Chuck!

Hope you enjoy these images. See more of what Steve does at his site.

Heaven Scent (not a misspelling) was inspired by the birth of my first grandchild, an allusion to the unique scent of a newborn. Having worked with the non-objective pages of monotypes and collagraphs I discovered this sense of joy.
