CONNECTIONS III

CONNECTIONS III

August 1 - October 27, 2019

New sculptures by Robert Koch and Ivan McLean whose works are connected by their use of similar metals. Their work achieves very different effects from their individual artistic expressions. Yoko Kubrick, our latest artist, works with Carrara marble as the material for her artistic voice. All three artists share the connective dream of shaping stone and metal into three dimensional expressions of their unique creative visions. The theme, CONNECTIONS, highlights the materials and process the artists share in common while celebrating the uniqueness of their voices.

Reception: Aug 2 5:30 - 7:00 pm
