High in South Windsor
The Shops at Evergreen Walk will soon be making a home for a unique stabile created by metal sculptor, Karen Rossi. The sculpture will be located inside the roundabout at the Hemlock Avenue entrance to the center. The characters, steel cut and powder coated in a natural finish, are representative of The Shops at Evergreen Walk. Included are a chef, a shopper, a little girl with an E on her dress, and a dog. The installation will take place this summer, and the anticipated unveiling will occur sometime this fall.
The Shops at Evergreen Walk plan to hold a brunch in the fall to celebrate the commission of the artwork and help raise funds for a local charity, My Friend's Place. Elizabeth Paige, General Manager at Evergreen Walk and Nicole Grendziszewski, Marketing Coordinator, are excited about the project. "The weathervane-like sculpture will add an element of New England charm to this unique center," noted Elizabeth.
In addition to Karen's licensing career, her fine art career has been reinvigorated. Other large projects include a garden arch for Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro and a mobile for Pine Grove Elementary School in Avon, CT. On June 25 and 26, you can see Karen at the South Windsor Historic Days Events that celebrate the town's heritage.
