Surfaces - 3 Sculptors Explore Surface

It may seem odd to present a sculpture exhibition that places focus on the surface of the works, which is often considered the mere superficial embellishment of the sculptural form. Yet when a sculptor considers the surface treatment as an intrinsic part of the complete work, or regards the three dimensional form as a canvas to activate fields of colors and light, the surface of the artwork offers a key to a new experience, a place where the second and the third dimension meet to delight the viewer further.

In this exhibition, we bring together two glass artists, Kari Minnick and Pam Morris, with radically different approaches to how the works' surfaces integrate form, light and color. Based out of Silver Spring Maryland, Minnick's deft use of color in broad painterly patterns comes to life in her kiln-formed works which demonstrate her fluency with the properties of glass. Morris has recently become interested in incorporating moving images into her large kiln-formed glass, and two such works are included in this exhibition.

Michael Hannon uses three contrasting materials in his life-sized figures: slick and highly reflective duct tape, newspaper fragments, and hammer-textured copper. Hannon's selection of his life-sized figures and dynamically poised torsos will be on display.
