Lawrence Argent is the head of the sculpture department at the University of Denver. He is known locally for his public art, including „Virere‰, the 20-foot electric green grass in the median of S. Broadway in Englewood, Colorado. The enormous „I See What You Mean‰, a 40 foot blue bear sculpture will be completed in April 2005 near the main entrance of the Convention Center building, on 14th Street in downtown Denver. This show will feature ten beautiful C-Print photographs in the same vein of the works exhibited in our „Photography Exhibition‰ this past September. Also on display will be several small sculptures and two very large pacifiers (the subject matter of the photos), one made of polyurethane and the other of bronze.
Stephen Daly is the area head of the sculpture department at the University of Texas, Austin. We will be showing his large cast bronze piece "Controller" as well as a selection of other works. Daly works in many mediums including cast aluminum, bronze, steel and mixed mediums. "I enjoy the static nature of sculpture and its existence in the same space as the viewer. Conversely, the gesture, immediacy, and atmosphere possible in drawing can accomplish much that the discrete object cannot. Works on paper that incorporate both drawing and sculptural elements can bridge the two distinct art forms." We will exhibit sculpture and several of his unusual water media drawing/sculpture combination pieces with cast aluminum forms emerging from the work.
Mary Bates Neubauer is the head of sculpture at Arizona State University in Tempe. She too works in a variety of mediums including cast bronze, aluminum and Epson Archival inkjet prints. She states that her „current work uses visual information obtained through digital processes to create and record 3D data. The work examines the way collectible materials and archived, and data is acquired, valued, and presented. The images are adapted from natural history study collections of small plant and animal forms. The cast bronze sculptures have expressive painterly patinas and are very touchable. We will feature both digital and sculptural works in this exhibition.
Emerging artist David Mazza was voted "Best Sculptor" by the Rocky Mountain News in this year's Top of the Rocky. He was recently commissioned by Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to build two 10-foot matching sculptures to form a gateway to the new Renaissance Park in Arvada. (The show will aired on January 2 on Channel 7.) Mazza's elegant tubular steel works are installed in the sculpture garden around the gallery as well as across the street in front of Christopher Carvell Architects.
