Kristen Erickson's Community in Blue show opened last night to a packed house at AMOCA. Kristen told the story of the exhibition, explaining that the 231 vessels are a visual diagram of the growing female homeless population in Pomona. Glazed in cobalt blue and a cracked white the baubles are arranged in a community on a field of yellow, the colors representing the Pomona city flag. Kristen is donating proceeds from her sales to Our House, a shelter in Pomona specifically for women. Kudos to Kristen for the beautiful work, all for a good cause.
They looked stunning in such a large grouping, in fact I took a few home for Clarke and myself!
