Currently 80, Curated by John Yau
February 5, 2017 thru February 24, 2017
Westbeth Gallery, 55 Bethune St, New York, NY 10014
Excerpted from John Yau’s essay for the Sculptors Guild Catalog “Currently 80”
“Each sculpture embodies a different vision of the world, of the past, present, and future. Some of the sculptures are whimsical: others touch on the tragic. The sculptors present a span of human emotions as wide as the range of their materials, shaped by the mind as much as by the hand. “
…”this exhibition of works by members of the Sculptors Guild at Westbeth… should serve as a healthy reminder of the importance of the relationship between independence and community. Neither can exist without the other, which is something we should never lose sight of. “
