We went to the "Small Favors VIII" opening at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia. I was very happy to have 2 sets of finger puppets included in this "tiny" show. The show runs through June 2nd and all pieces can be purchased online at this link....
I have been commissioned to make a piece about a woman and her love of quilting by her husband. After many sketches and a few false starts, I am finally getting some where. Creating, whether a quilt or sculpture, is mostly a quiet and contemplative process but when completed, there's a feeling of elation and pride.
Yesterday was the opening reception for "Three Painters with Sculptures by Barbara Fiore" at Art Essex Gallery in Essex, CT. Thanks to Rob, George and Katie for a fun afternoon. The show runs through April 28th.
I've been finishing up a lot of work for my upcoming show at Art Essex Gallery in Essex, CT. The show is with three painters, James Coe, Steve Kennedy and Dadvid Mesite and runs from April 3rd through April 28th. The opening reception is Saturday April 6th from 4 to 7 pm.

She has always been inspired by the physical and visual world of animals and nature and has discovered sculpture as the perfect medium to express her vision. Barbara lives and works along the Delaware River in Northeastern Pennsylvania with her husband, artist Peter Fiore, and their two dogs.
