When: Fri., May 22, 2-3 p.m. 2015
Exhibiting artist Alyson Shotz will present her life and career then lead guests to the Halsey Institute for a gallery talk within her exhibition FORE OF NATURE. This exhibition features Shotz's work that examines the properties and interactions of light, gravity, mass, and space. She bridges disciplines in her work, drawing on scientific methods, mathematical principles, and literature, among other diverse fields. Often employing nontraditional materials such as glass beads, linen thread, stainless-steel filaments, and welded aluminum to create large-scale abstract sculptures, Shotz expands upon conventional notions of sculptural space and form.
