    Liz Denny at Nina's Nook

    Showing at Nina’s Nook from August 6—September 12: Sculpture by Elizabeth Denny. 

    Finding odd bits of abandoned machinery and other junk is part meditation, part obsession for this Florence sculptor and former researcher. She feels that “taking rusty farm machinery apart with an acetylene torch is almost as good as sex….It does’t matter what the medium is, I just function better in life when I am making something.” Denny creates humorous sculptures out of whatever she can get her hands on when “poking around din old dumps and wading in the river."

    Elizabeth Denny was the favorite student of Nina Rossi’s father, Dr Peter Rossi, when he taught graduate courses in survey design and evaluation at UMass. He swore she was the smartest student he ever taught, and they maintained an ongoing monthly lunch date for a number of years after graduation. 

    Denny and Rossi met at Dr Rossi’s memorial service and realized they share a  love of old junk. This show has been an idea for several years and now becomes reality.  Her assemblages of machinery, river glass, old household items and all sorts of old stuff are on display at Nina's Nook in Turners Falls from August 5—September 12. An artist’s reception is planned for Saturday August 15 from 5 to 7 p.m.

    Dreams, Fantasies and Fetishes Opens May 7

    Bruce Kahn is back with his wildly unpredictable compositions! Part science fiction, part myth, part nightmare, half human with generous mixtures from the animal kingdon, Kahn's work gets everyone talking after they are done gaping at it with their mouth open.

     (Somewhere in some of his works are some very familiar mammaries and buttocks, if truth be told.)
