Objectivity

Date/Time

10:00 AM until 05:00 PM

Description

On Saturday, May 6, the Washington Art Association & Gallery will present Objectivity, an exhibition of sculpture and photographs. This exhibition will explore how five artists working in different media deal with the quality of being objective – through the lens of a camera or the touch of the hand.

 

Mary Adams is a sculptor concerned with figural representation. Her clay and bronze figures are able to capture movement, expression and mood in three dimensions. Her sense of touch is so attuned that her sculptures give the viewer not only the keen sense of a figure but also of place and time.

Dan Murray studied with esteemed master sculptor, Paul Suttman. Employing the lost wax casting method, the hawks and mountain lions around his rural studio in Kent have inspired him. The animals’ connections to nature grounds Murray and gives him insight into our greater world. His stylized forms give the animals authority and grace.

Jon Riedeman’s reliefs and sculptures also focus on wildlife. His work is realistic and evokes touch of whimsy that the natural world tends to cleverly possess.

William de la Marr’s photographs are interested in the interconnectedness of environmental systems. He concentrates on photographing water in its various forms.  As profoundly important as water may be in that direct and measurable context there is another contemplative benefit that water provides - water depicts simplicity, and yet its complexity challenges us to find patterns in apparent chaos.

Catherine Noren’s lure of photography as a gateway to Truth has been intense.  Yet, curiosity about people and events has become less intense than the metaphors that illuminate them:  light, color, shadow, shape, juxtaposition, scale with out-of-the-way relationships and geographies.  Noren works to make the familiar strange to the viewer.

 

Objectivity will begin on Saturday, May 6 and run through Saturday, June 3. An opening reception will be held on May 6 from 4:00- 6:00PM. Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat, 10 am - 5 pm.
