Planted Palettes and pockets will populate the walls of the Gallery with art and life, in celebration of spring and reemergence. The installation will feature a vertical garden wall and art works byLesley Haas, Dana Henry, Common Zen Savvy, Rachel Blythe Udell  and the opening will feature a wearable art fashion show by Ruth Schanbacher and Rachel Blythe Udell.

The handmade plant vessels featured are made primarily of recycled/repurposed materials. The pallets were collected in the area and refashioned in a variety of colors and configurations. The plant pockets are embellished by local artists and made of reclaimed fabrics, lined for water retention, (with otherwise landfill-bound) used chip or food bags.

Intermingled art pieces include vegetable papyrus and paper-pulp creature sculptures, among other items. The installation is offered up as a living growing art community space. You are invited to come to any of our  events and plant a seed or use the paint markers and materials provided to add your touch to the group or ‘gang palettes’ in the space.
