Joan Scaglione: Ribs of Sky, Ribs of Stone

A few weeks back, I was lucky enough to spend some time with artist Joan Scaglione and a studio full of boats.  The images were for the invite for her upcoming exhibition at the MacKenzie Art Gallery.  And the boats she created are actually suspended from the ceiling.  Honestly, it is pretty damn cool.  The opening is this coming Friday (info below).  I highly suggest you check it out if can.
