Exhibit of Bird Mobiles
The Greenwich Art Society Gallery will present a show called “Bird Mobiles: Suspension Of Time” through Monday at the Arts Council Building at 299 Greenwich Ave. The mobiles were created by local artist Susan McHale, who creates her art with discarded branches found on the beach. “The process of making my Bird Mobiles is like catching an ephemeral moment — suspended in time, the hanging flock fly by and seem to continue their journey,” she says. Call 203-629-1533 for more information.
