Andy Moerlein: Longing for Mountains

Nov. 7 - Dec. 9, 2018

If you have not yet seen this show? Here are some final events:
Sun., Dec. 2, 3pm
Collecting Strange Stones: The Art of Scholars' Rocks 
with Timothy Springer
Boston Sculptors Gallery presents a fascinating talk by Timothy Springer.  Mr. Springer is an expert in Scholars’ Rock who has collected a varied selection of Chinese stones that span from intimate to monumental in scale. His “car size” garden stones were selected from the warehouses of newly discovered and expressively singular rock formations. Mr. Springer will show images of his trip, the connoisseur collections he visited and then share his impressions of the contemporary work on view by Andy Moerlein.

Heavy hors d'oeuvres and tea/gourmet coffee will be served.
First Friday Closing Reception: Dec. 7, 5 - 8pm 

  Vestige, plywood on walnut, 14”h
Ridge, oak on plywood on beech limbs, 32”h
Island remnant ridge run. Perforated and ancient earth poem.
Denali, oak on beech wood, 17”h
A singular geologic icon.
Sliver Island, locust on maple and Spanish cedar, 16”
An imagination’s outpost for the hearty. An isolated sanctuary.
Cavern, cherry on plywood, 20”h
Shapes and spaces that draw us into unknown places, both playful and dangerous. Cold water and hard stone.
Plateau, cherry on maple and Spanish cedar, 16”h
A last space of solace. Eroded from beneath and all sides - but a fortress.
Roller Coaster, (2 views) locust on plywood, 25”h
Playful and physical, like the momentum and lunge of a summer roller coaster ride. This work is a tribute to Donna and our adventures together.

Parched, cherry on plywood, beech and oak branches, 48”h
A feeling. A place. Lovely heat without burning.
