Art at Cup of Praise

I dropped by Cup of Praise on Wolcott Street this evening for a reception featuring the art of Eduardo Paredes (and enjoyed some delicious flan while I was there).

I took advantage of a moment when everyone was over by the counter to take this photo. The artist is working in the corner.

Eduardo Paredes posing with some of his art.

Eduardo's sculptures are created from recycled materials. He joked that this is one way to deal with blight in Waterbury--use it to create art. This sculpture is composed of papier-mâché, computer/phone parts, and other found objects.

This sculpture is made with cement...

...with a happy face on its back.
