About

'Horn of Plenty' is a sculptural shrine dedicated to the human imagination at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center created by Jersey City-based artist Shamona Stokes. The centerpiece of this installation is a 7-ft tall, crowd-funded unicorn-sphinx entitled “Antenna”, which will be surrounded by a family of 50 smaller ceramic nature spirits and imaginary friends. Among the works shown in the shrine, are a series of whimsical fertility statues that present a modern twist on one of the oldest symbols of creativity ever discovered, the “Venus of Willendorf.” The theme of creative rebirth is a large thematic component in Stokes’ work, since the artist had a creative block and did not pursue art for many years. She began sculpting three years ago and credits her large output of creativity to a simultaneous daily meditation practice alongside working with the playful material of clay.
