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