The Intention of the Exhibition
This is my shared artistic journey---a quest to encourage and value awareness of the pollution problem manifested through my creative “lens” as a visual artist. The exhibition presents drawings and paintings created over the past decade driven by the impact of environmental violations upon our planet. I hope this presentation supports individuals as they view the imagery within my works translating what is received to an acknowledgment of our silent participation. We are one together in what can be harsh awareness.

The "Plus Ten" exhibit derived from Mr. Zito's beekeeping, in which he saw a perfectly calibrated, though fragile, example of environmental and social infrastructure and a satisfying metaphor to generate a body of work. Originally intending to make a series of sculptures in the form of exquisite beehives constructed in exotic woods, he realized after making the first one that as much as it satisfied an H. C. Westermann-meets-Donald Judd axis present in his work, it was inherently limited as simply craft and lacking an expressive component.
So he chose to invoke the social imperative of the bee colony by inviting ten artist friends to collaborate with him. He made for each of them an impeccable clear pine hive, a stack of one deep and one medium compartment of the Langstroth type, and asked them to do something, anything at all, to embellish them and allow him to make their beehives part of “his” exhibition. The results express both individuality and community.
