Bugs were always fun, but it was the chandelier in our dining room that really got me. The repetition of brass and lights in geometric designs was … well, for lack of a more incisive description, really, really cool.
Well that’s my short story; do you remember any of your childhood kaleidoscopes? Though often proffered to children, they’re quite remarkable optical implements. The physics behind them is straightforward, but can get much more advanced when you look at deluxe models.
Speaking of deluxe models, you’ve just got to see the “Moon Dog Kaledioscopes” at Arts Prescott Cooperative this month. With skillfully crafted stained glass, these pieces by Linda Bellacicco can literally change the way you see the world.
Looks like the artist’s reception was during the May 4th Friday Art Walk — whoops, my bad — but the show runs through June 20 . There’s plenty of time to catch this one.
Upon further reflection (and, depending on the individual design, some refraction), it looks like you’re all set. Enjoy!
Visit Moon-Dog.Com to find out more about Linda Bellacicco and Moon Dog Kaleidoscopes.
Visit “Moon Dog Kaleidoscopes” through June 20 at Arts Prescott Cooperative Gallery, 134 S. Montezuma St., 928-776-7717, ArtsPrescott.Com.
