Celebrate the opening of the David Smalley Memorial Exhibition with an evening reception at the museum. Be the first to see the indoor and outdoor sculptures while enjoying wine and
Made of steel, aluminum, bronze and wood, Smalley’s sculptures incorporate a range of styles, and have been featured in more than 50 solo shows in the United States, England and Japan. Smalley typically worked in series, and the show is organized accordingly: kinetic works in stainless steel, which reflect and engage their environment; bent wood pieces, also kinetic, which reference more natural materials and contexts; experiments in 3D printing that produce dystopic industrial landscapes enclosed in bell jars; a somber series of bronze shipwrecks; and finally a mesmerizing “Spartina” series, inspired by the graceful movements of wetland grasses.
The outdoor component of our summer David Smalley Memorial Exhibition will remain on view through October 29.
