PELHAM, N.Y. -- Pelham Art Center will present, "In the Courtyard: Stuffscapes,"a six-person outdoor exhibition with sculptures made from diverse materials such as cast metal, repurposed wood and found objects.
The opening for the exhibition will be part of ArtsFest 2014, on Saturday, Sept. 27, and include a community aluminum pour organized by the Stuffscapes artists.
The six sculptors, David Alban, Margaret Coleman, Stephen Eakin, Liz Ensz, Coral Lambert, James Lentz, each present a new sculpture that explores the significance of an object in relationship to permanence and temporality and our cultural perspective on the environment and the materials we use.
From cast metal to repurposed wood and found objects, the show reflects a broad span of materials exploring the continuum from which all man-made materials are ultimately derived from an organic natural resource. It further explores the relationship between the natural process of geological evolution that creates our natural materials and the artist’s interventions that mold and shape them for cultural purposes. With each sculpture, the show strives to present an object of cultural significance that considers the resources we have, and uses them in new ways.
View the sculptures, meet the artists, carve wall tiles, and watch it be poured in aluminum. There is a $20 fee to make a tile. It's curated by ArtShape Mammoth, Vermont.
