Description

** In person art exhibit. Click "Attend Event" to learn more.** Raised in a small port town in Alaska, Jerry Wingren creates sculptures that incorporate his northwest and Scandinavian heritage with Japanese aesthetics. This exhibition celebrates 45 years of the artist’s work spanning, from 1976 to 2021. The exhibition features abstract, geometrical sculptures of alabaster, granite, marble, steatite, steel, and wood as well as works on paper. It centers on a career-long attempt to lighten up, lift off, and float materials that are often heavy and ponderous. Throughout his work there is a fascinating, relational dichotomy between elemental materials of stone, steel, and wood, and how they live with and depend on the natural elements of light and time. Wingren’s art is always about light and lightness, incredible lightness. Image credit: Jerry Wingren, Swedish Black Granite Resting Stone #1, 2006-2008, black granite, 8" x 13" x 12".
