Bunnell Sculpture
Special Exhibit!
'Hocus Pocus!'

This fall, we have conjured up a very special exhibit celebrating all that is mystical, magical, mysterious and make-believe.

'Hocus-Pocus' brings together dreams, history, storytelling and imagination. Often the joy in art comes from being surprised, both for the artist and the viewer! Read more...

For your listening pleasure, Paradise City presents cool jazz, swing and standards from a different band every afternoon in the Sculpture Café from noon to 4pm.

How Do They Do It? • Meet the Artists at Paradise City

Walking the show at Paradise City, you may come across an artist braiding leather for the strap of a handbag, sketching out a concept for a commission, carving wood or sewing trim on a jacket. This is one of the little pleasures of Paradise City. Not only do you meet the artists and talk to them about their work, but you also may get a glimpse of the technique and thought process behind each piece of art or craft.
Verne Jidong Yan working on silk embroidery Verne Jidong Yan is a second-generation master of the ancient Chinese art of silk embroidery. Using hairlike silk threads, Yan meticulously practices the art of 'double-side embroidery', a very complex and timeconsuming craft much revered in his native China. His thread paintings are even more impressive once you've seen him work! Visit Booth 121.

Jeffrey Hayes at work Jeffrey Hayes is a realist painter, working in oils, who sometimes works in miniature - requiring the use of a magnifying glass to see the brushwork! One of his passions is world cuisine, and many of his paintings describe food and serving implements in breathtaking detail.Booth 109.
