Bobbi Baugh to have two works featured in Dunedin Fine Art Center
EXHIBITING IN DUNEDIN FINE ART CENTER IN JUNE
(posted May 18, 2017)
I am so pleased to have two works selected for the exhibition “GROWTH!” sponsored by Florida Studio Art Quilt Associates. “Small Expectations” looks at the subject of growth through a portrait of two little girls enclosed in a background of the expectations for “proper” girls. “Beach Path – Endangered” invites viewers to recall the urge of the beach and the feel of sand in the toes, along with the reminder that growth threatens this natural experience.

I am honored to be selected as the featured artist for T-Shirts and posters for the 2016-Fall Festival of the Arts in DeLand. I love the DeLand Fall Festival! It’s in beautiful downtown DeLand, and it’s a wonderful opportunity for me to show my work in my own home town. I haven’t created the artwork for the 2016 Festival yet…but the wheels are turning!

“How Can We Sing in a Strange Land” has been accepted for inclusion in the SAQA exhibit, "Migration Stories", opening April 15, 2016 at the National Textile Museum of George Washington University in Washington, D.C. A joint project between SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) and GWU, this exhibit promises to be an outstanding presentation of artist responses to the subject of immigration. Over two hundred applications were received, and thirty nine were accepted. I think it is interesting that this exhibit was conceived and advertised to artists for jurying nearly two years ago.

December 2014 - PIECING TOGETHER A CHANGING PLANET
"End of Eden," a piece created in collaboration with artist John Lewis, has been accepted to be a part of this SAQA-sponsored traveling exhibit, opening December 2014 at Biscayne National Park in Miami. Exhibit curator Maya Schonenberger created a call to artists that encouraged an artistic response to the reality of global warming. "Stories of how artists have played a crucial role in the environmental movement are legion. The arts convey beauty, fragility and urgency in ways that touch the heart and soul, thus opening the mind as well." Baugh and Lewis created a piece drawing on the tradition of a Renaissance altarpiece, especially "The Garden of Earthy Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch, which depicts transformation from a pastoral garden-like world to a hell-like scene of flames and decay, with human folly depicted in between. Baugh and Lewis put a contemporary spin on the human activity depicted, showing such contributors to global warming as fracking, dependence on fossil fuel, and poor agricultural practices. The group show will travel for two years, with exhibits at Cuyahoga National Park, Cap Cod National Seashore, the Statue of Liberty, Great Smoky Mountains and Glacier National Park, among others.
