Atlantis Resort Glass Sculptures

Written by , Posted in Art, Bahamas, Caribbean, Nassau, Sony NEX-7

I had a chance to visit the Atlantis Resort in Nassau while we were docked during my cruise.  The resort is beautiful!  Dale Chihuly created these hand-blown glass sculptures that are located in the casino area.  If you’ve ever visited Las Vegas you might recognize his work, Fiori di Como, over 2,000 hand-blown glass flowers on the celling of the Bellagio.

I can’t decide if the sun or moon sculpture is my favorite.  I wonder how many hours it took to create these beautiful works of art.

African Beauty – Sculpture by Woodrow Nash

Written by , Posted in Art, Baltimore, Canon 7D, Maryland

I was walking from the parking lot on my way to the concert at Artscape and was awestruck by these beautiful sculptures by artist Woodrow Nash.

“The serial nature of the works — an inspired composition of torsos, sculptures and timeless objects of contemplation – recall a primitive minimalist whose relentless repetitiveness produces extraordinary and mysterious structures.

Inside these bold bodies dwell the spirits of African kings, queens, warriors and kinsmen.” — artist website
