Ms. Segel, with her fascination for tools and woodworking, creates assemblages and collages using odd or old objects, wood or parts from damaged antique furniture and other rejected items that she sometimes finds in the streets or at yard sales. All her pieces are generally reworked several times, involving all composition aspects. The reconfiguration and refining process often ends up showing complete changes from the original concept. This constant evolution is evidence of her desire to always test, stretch and expand her abilities. To Segel, personal and professional life challenges have always been tools for self-improvement and her search is constant and endless.

This exhibit is sponsored in part by the Florida Keys Council of the Arts, Ocean Sotheby’s, and Latin American Art Magazine, as well as other supporters.  Free parking is available. RSVP’s appreciated, please call Maria at Ocean Sotheby’s, 305-712-8888.
