A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite at Cornerstone Sonoma is pleased to announce an opening reception for their newest exhibition, IN BRONZE, on January 12, 2014 2pm - 4pm. In this exhibition of bronzes by three internationally recognized sculptors, we explore three very distinctive approaches for creating striking abstract forms of enduring grace.
• Clement Meadmore (1929-2005) created his diminutive models in resin, which he would meditatively cut and assemble in endless configurations, to be expertly fabricated by a foundry into bronze (or aluminum for his monumental works) at the scale that he felt would work best.
• Richard Erdman (b. 1952) most often begins with carving an impossibly delicate and elegant stone sculpture at one of his studios in Vermont or Carrara, Italy. His most successful works are turned into a cast bronze edition. He is known for exploring a particularly eloquent form at various scales, in both bronze and stone.
• Hans Van de Bovenkamp (b. 1938) creates one-of-a-kind sculptures from sheet metal, coaxing the rigid material into carefully composed organic forms that meld his background in architecture and his life-long interest in the spiritual, sacred sites of the world.
