  • 2019-02-22 17:00:00 2019-02-22 20:00:00 Opening Reception: Sayaka Ganz, Claudia Berlinski <p><span>You're invited to the opening reception of exhibitions by </span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/sayakaganz22" target="_blank">Sayaka Kajita Ganz</a><span>and </span><a href="https://www.facebook.com/cberlinski" target="_blank">Claudia Berlinski</a><span>. This exhibition will be on view February 22 - March 22, 2019. </span><br /><br /><span>Mother Sea, Haha naru umi: Sayaka Ganz</span><br /><span>Sayaka Ganz was born in Yokohama, Japan and grew up living in Japan, Brazil, and Hong Kong. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University Bloomington, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Bowling Green State University (BGSU) in Bowling Green, Ohio. She taught design and drawing courses at Indiana University &#8211; Purdue University Fort Wayne between 2002 and 2012.</span><br /><br /><span>Using reclaimed metal and plastic objects, Sayaka’s recent sculptures depict animals in motion with rich colors and energy. She describes her style as “3D impressionism”, creating an illusion of solid form using plastic objects as brush strokes that become visible upon observation from close proximity. Her recent exhibitions include: “Danze Della Natura” &#8211; solo exhibition at the Hermann Geiger Foundation in Cecina, Italy, and “Metamorphosis” &#8211; temporary installation at the Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska. Her recent commissions include a series of marine life sculptures for the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California and a permanent installation of an underwater scene featuring whales and turtles in the lobby of Cimer Spa at the Paradise Resort in</span><br /><span>Incheon, Korea.</span><br /><br /><span>Trace Evidence: Claudia Berlinski </span><br /><span>Claudia Berlinski is a native of Buffalo, New York, where she earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts BFA in Printmaking from Buffalo State College. She attended graduate school at The Ohio State University and has lived in Ohio ever since. Berlinski has exhibited nationally and regionally, with works included in several institutional and private collections. She has contributed to numerous print portfolio exchanges and has curated and adjudicated a number of group exhibitions. Berlinski is currently the Foundations Program Coordinator and McDonough Museum Coordinator at Youngstown State University.</span><br /><br /><span>Utilizing photography, Berlinski’s work examines the fugitive nature of personal history and memory. She describes her photographic process through a personal, and global, obsession to record things visually. The imagery used in her works emphasize the importance of the mundane in everyday life, as she documents spending her time traveling, visiting, hiking, working, and being at home. Her recent works involve disrupting the surface of each piece to push the boundary of how much of an image must be recognizable to unleash a forgotten event or encounter. Berlinski also utilizes the disruption of appearance to reinforce the notion that time and emotion alter the accuracy of memories.</span></p> 300 East Main Street Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac

  • 2019-05-17 17:00:00 2019-05-17 20:00:00 Opening Reception: The Art of Metalsmithing Exposed, Emily Sullivan Smith <p><span>You're invited to the opening reception of The Art of Metalsmithing Exposed curated by Steve Shelby and a solo exhibition by Emily Sullivan Smith on Friday, May 17 from 5-8pm. These exhibitions will be on view from May 17 - June 21, 2019. </span><br /><br /><span>The Art of Metalsmithing Exposed curated by Steve Shelby </span><br /><span>The Art of Metalsmithing Exposed will highlight the best of contemporary three-dimensional metal art from around the world. This exhibition features a diverse group of artists, ranging from emerging or self-taught to college professors and silversmithing professionals. Many of the artists teach their craft as freelancer, around the country and parts of the world, in their own facilities, or in colleges or universities. Some primarily design and make jewelry while some come from blacksmithing, welding, or auto body backgrounds. Two of the artists featured, Betty Helen Longhi and Cynthia Eid, have written the definitive book on contemporary metalsmithing, Creative Metal Forming. </span><br /><br /><span>This exhibition explores metalsmithing in the cold forming of metal from flat sheet (or ingot) into three dimensional form, using hammer and various other tools (not to be confused with blacksmithing, which is the hot forming of iron and steel). The functional objects that used to be handmade by metalsmiths are now mass-produced, evolving the craft over time into a vehicle for artistic expression. </span></p> 300 East Main Street Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
