PANEL DISCUSSION** April 15 2-3 pm
Read Mary Ann Kearns' review of this show!
I am a sculptor because I wish to deal with the authentic. I convey in solids and presence.
A single sculpture is most often measured in weeks. A drawing is measured in hours. Often prints are accomplished several in an evening. It is a rush as a sculptor to draw, print or paint as a way to explore ideas. This is a show exposes the visual process behind several monumental works. It is in some ways a documentary of two artists and their working process.
** Donna Dodson and I have walked parallel paths for the past three years. We have collaborated on several important works during this time. We have worked elbow to elbow on a projects that shared our names.
119 Gallery fosters innovative cooperation between artists, musicians, dancers, performers, video artists and creative thinkers. As part of TWO SCULPTORS IN TWO DIMENSIONS the gallery is pleased to host several notable artists' teams, who will share images of their work and discuss their experiences as collaborators.
