"She sells seashells by the seashore..." Shells come in all shapes and sizes, each with a story to tell. The scallop shell is traditionally a symbol of solidarity for Pilgrims on their journey; the moon snail – round, short-spined and smooth – inspires the shell seeker to look inward. Each shell arrives on the beach, whether via gentle, rolling surf or tumbling, raucous waves, to share its unique tale of survival or lesson from nature.
Puzzle art by Julie Pritchard. Here she conceives the moon snail and scallop in the printmaking tradition of Andy Warhol – all exaggerated colors and interesting contrasts, inspired by nature.
