Creatures of Imagination Book Signing & Art Show at M&S Grill
North Carolina sculptor and author Carol Willett will offer an art show to accompany launch of her new book, “Creatures of Imagination: A Journal of Discovery.” The art-bio-adventure-book follows the exploits of 19th century explorer Gwendolyn Remington-Burke as she travels around the globe and under the seas to discover creatures “on the edge of evolution.” Rather than capture these marvels, she sculpts them using materials from their native habitat. Luscious, textural photographs of these sculptures form the core of the book, supplemented by Gwendolyn’s notes on flora, fauna and the engaging personalities of the fantastic creatures themselves. Among eighty other creatures, read about Jules the Giant Squid, Social Morays, the Peliquin, Loan Shark, Beauty Parlor Monster, and the Purple Crested Bandersnatch. In addition to signing books and discussing her sculptural process, Carol will introduce several new species of her papier and cloth mâché creatures. Be on hand to meet the: Buff-Aloha, Literary Snake, Boa ConStripper, Oyster Bunny, Bar Fly, and a dozen other new discoveries.
