"Stephen Cruise: STOCK"
2002-04-27 until 2002-05-25
This exhibition is an introduction to Stephen Cruise's sculpture
"Stock," which will be permanently installed in the courtyard of
Cambridge Libraries and Galleries' Preston location in late spring. The
exhibition will explore the artist's working process in the drawings and
maquettes behind the sculpture.
"Stock" began as children's wooden blocks stacked in the shape of a
tree. Seven trees are depicted as part of the original Preston coat of
arms, and seven stacks of books, cut from limestone, will be arranged in
a pattern loosely based on the path taken by the Speed River as it
defines the northwest boundaries of the community of Preston. This
placement will encourage visitors to interact with the sculpture as they
walk through the courtyard to the library's entrance.
Stephen Cruise was born in Montreal and studied at the Ontario College
of Art. Cruise's work has been exhibited extensively nationally and
internationally since the early seventies and his work is found in many
private, corporate and public collections including the National Gallery
of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.
