Back to the Baker


In a recent visit to the Baker Museum, I was greeted by over-sized origami birds by artists Kevin and Jennifer Box.  The Baker has five and co-sponsor Naples Botanical Garden is showing 30.


An interesting show of work by Naples-based commercial advertising and fine arts 
photographer Harry de Zitter was given four rooms.


Fellow blogger Bob Crowe of St. Louis Daily Photo has been visiting Seattle and showing some of the creative glass work from the Chihuli studio.. The Baker has some, too, in the ceiling above a walkway between galleries.  The donors -- as usual -- were Jay and Patty Baker.

There is something about that Chihuly glass that gets me every time. Gorgeous!

I love the birds. I would love to learn the materials used to make the sculptures.

The Origami is spectacular, Jack! I'd love to see those!

I am in awe of people who can make origami of such complexity. I can't comprehend it. Looks like the Chihuly has a sperm and egg theme going on.

The origami is beautiful. And then...great black and white photographs...and then...I love Chihuli ceilings. I think I'd enjoy this museum.
