First we hit Venti's for some "good, clean food" (and it was!). Actually, there was another reason: to see Dayna Collins' mixed-media show, which is hanging at Venti's through the end of June. We sat at one of the two booths, where Dayna's "littles" hung on the wall next to us. Those were my favorites!
Here's the postcard about the show:

According to the Pheromone Gallery's brochure, "Leading environmentalists and entomologists agree that insect collecting can actually aid in the preservation of insect species by offering an economic incentive to preserve the habitat in which this 'sustainable rainforest crop' thrives."
This is a fascinating show. Though some parts of it felt downright creepy to me, all I had to do was shift my focus away from the spider crabs to the intricate, gossamer wings of a dragonfly, and I was back to seeing beauty.
Don't miss this! It's like a trip to a science museum, jewelry store, and art gallery all rolled into one!
