Amy Gross uses everyday materials such as yarn, thread, beads and wire to create objects that mimic the natural world but remain wholly artificial. Her fiber and mixed media sculptures, nicknamed biotopes, reflect on the inevitability of change, attempting to counter inevitable vulnerability by stopping time. Her life forms are imitations of life. They, simply, do not die. Gross earned her BFA at The Cooper Union in New York City and worked as a surface designer, creating textiles, toys, and jewelry before before turning full time to fiber art. She lives and works in South Florida.

From the Daily Show to his own HBO show, comedian Paul Mecurio knows how to make someone laugh. He’ll be raising the laughs to benefit the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America’s Take Steps Fort Lauderdale event. Everyone is invited to give the gift of laughter and help find a cure with sponsors, Paul B. Tartell, M.D. FACS, and the Memorial Hospital West Medical Staff.

“Paul Mecurio has kept audiences laughing on television, the Internet and through his stand-up. Everyone coming should be prepared for a night of sheer hilarity,” said event organizer Sabrina Kurzman, who is organizing the event with her children Samantha and Benjamin. “We are excited to host this evening of fun in support of the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America. CCFA supports efforts in finding new treatments for the painful and often debilitating digestive diseases. What better way to raise money and support the organization than a comedy night! We encourage the community to join us for an evening of laughter!”
