Outdoor Sculpture Show: Genesis at Green Spring Station
Genesis Year 1
~ SEPTEMBER 8, 2011
Genesis is a collaboration between Baltimore Sculptors Incorporated, the James L. Pierce Gallery, and Green
Spring Station (Foxleigh Management) which began in September 2010. This exhibition consists of outdoor work displayed in open areas throughout
this prestigious shopping area. Green Spring Station serves as the north
gate to Baltimore’s premier communities. Maps showing the locations of the sculptures are being distributed next to the door to the James L. Pierce Gallery, which is also handling inquiries from prospective buyers.
The exhibition consists of two parts: the first is an eleven-month exhibition of larger outdoor works installed either on cement pads or directly on the ground, which opened September 2010. The second part of the exhibition is mounted within the open interior of the shopping area.
How Did You Do That?
A Sculptor’s Inc. Exhibition
January 16–Febraury 13, 2010
Opening reception Saturday, January 16, 5-7 pm
3134 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, MD
The most frequently asked question of any sculptor––how did you do that?––is
potentially the most revealing, since the answer necessarily reveals the
artist’s relationship to materials, process, and craft. With these questions
in mind, CA Artistic Director Jed Dodds juries 5 artists from the current
membership of Sculptor’s Inc., founded in 1983 to support area sculptors,
and bristling with energy as it enters 2010. A portion of the gallery
is set aside for ongoing demonstrations and discussions.
Ralph Baney hews deceptively simple, abstract wooden
pieces that reflect the heritage of his native Trinidad; the 80 year old
sculptor demonstrates his technique using an electric chainsaw in the
gallery. Rachel Rotenberg expands the vocabulary of wood
to include laminating, joining and bending along with traditional carving
to achieve a more contemporary sensibility. Starting with found objects, Mark
Eisendrath manipulates “found” processes - aging, oxidation,
and fire among others – to achieve stunning effects. Helen Glazer’s colorful
wall sculptures blend modern materials with traditional casting techniques
to mimic clouds, flowers and other natural forms. Self-taught machinist-turned-artist Chris
Bathgate has won accolades for the neo-futuristic metal sculptures
he fabricates with invented and repurposed tools. Jim Paulsen employs
allegory with a wink and a nod (hint: he likes hot dogs), drawing upon
a grab bag of techniques and materials and typically finishing with a
colorful patina to complete the illusion.
