Opening: March 1st, from 6-9pm
Exhibition Dates: March 1 – April 12
Sculpture Now 2013 is a broad exhibit that explores various contemporary ideas ranging from tribal symbols to futuristic concepts. Selected by Philadelphia-based curator Florcy Morisset, the 27 exhibiting sculptures are created out of classic mediums such as wood, metals, glass, stone, corrugated cardboard to rare found objects and textiles. While the creative process is unconscious for several of the artists, there is detailed attention to placement within the physical structure and a time period.
The exhibition is comprised of works by the following artists: Jan Acton, Chris Bathgate, Tom Bendtsen, Anne Bouie, Janet Brome, Eric Celarier, Frederic Crist, Joel D’Orazio, Alonzo Davis, Joshua DeMonte, Ellisa Farrow-Savos, Todd Fry, Janet Goldner, Len Harris, Artemis Herber, Liz Lescault, Ruth Lozner, Beau McCall, Darcy Meeker, Joe Mooney, Lincoln Mudd, Craig Schaffer, Madeline Smith, Marcos Smyth, Paul Steinkoenig, Dave Wertz, Peter Wood, Joyce Zipperer.
