NY Times article on Sculpture, On and Off the Wall
Sculpture Exhibition at ArtsWestchester, Arts Exchange
31 Mamaroneck Avenue
White Plain NY

ArtsWestchester’s first exhibiton that is exclusively sculpture, the  curators  solicited recommendations from museum and gallery directors throughout the county, including Neil Watson and Ellen Keiter of the Katonah Museum of Art; Livia Straus of the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art; Castle Gallery’s Katrina Rhein; Kenise Barnes, owner of Kenise Barnes Fine Art; and Ravi S. Rajan, director of the State University of New York Purchase School of Art+Design. The resulting mix of established and emerging artists work with traditional metal, clay, wood and stone, as well as fused, fired and blown glass, and found objects like storm-felled tree branches, a car’s exhaust manifold and nylon stockings.

Livia Straus boasts that she suggested half the selected artists out of the 20 in the exhibition.
