The Standing Series was first exhibited in 1984, at the Helen Shlien Gallery, Boston, and after showing in a few other venues, it was packed away in storage, as Martie moved on in making more paintings.  In  May 2016 with photographer Midge Wattles (website here) a revisiting of the sculptures began in Wendell Massachusetts, where three of the original grouping will be documented as they return to nature, among the trees of their origin on the property of friends, deep in the woods.
