The series entitled Mushrooming explores the overlap between early civilizations and the nature that inspired them. In these paintings, Etruscan artifacts float in layers of organic form, primarily shells and mushrooms. The sacred geometry embedded in the shell is repeated in crafts like weaving and ceramics and systems like architecture and urban planning. They are the cycle of life and death that connects us to the past and to our roots in the natural world.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
