James Cass, a Longmeadow resident and Theatre Arts teacher in Longmeadow and Springfield is showing his art work at The Storrs Library in Longmeadow from December 9th to January 25th. This show consists of two forms of art. The first form he calls his “Little Rocks” which consists of 11 small rock-wood-shell-metal sculptures; each is a small look at nature. All the materials used in the sculptures were found along the shores of Cape Cod. The second art form in this showing offers a unique look at business cards from favorite restaurants, bait shops, stores and various businesses visited by James over the years. This framed art work features places like Cape Cod, Northampton and the Pioneer Valley. If you are interested in purchasing a little sculpture or have your own idea for James to create a business card mosaic featuring one of your favorite places, please let him know.
