The Paper Conservatory

For our final gallery show of the spring, Castle in the Air has gathered a flock of the most stunning birds and delicate plants you'll see anywhere. In fact, you won't find another example of several of these beauties anywhere else, as they are extinct or endangered by the shortsighted actions of mankind.

What they've all got in common, though, is that they are all the creation of Berkeley artist Aimee Baldwin, a sculptor with a scientist's eye and a conservationist's heart. We're proud to display her collection of these legendary creatures and rare plants to show you how Aimee is pushing the artistic boundaries of the crepe paper and other sculptural materials she uses, and we can't give enough support to her reminder of Nature's fragility. Please come see the works and say hello at the opening reception for "The Paper Conservatory" on Thursday, June 9.

This is a great conservatory! to big to fit on the side of a house though.
