Dear Craig Gallery Friends,
We welcome each of you to take in Barbara Schmeisser’s Artist Talk in The Craig Gallery this Saturday, September 25th, 2-3pm.
Barbara will be discussing her latest exhibit in The Craig Case Galleries, You, Me, Them… Us. Barbara has managed to create stunningly realistic representations of indiginous and non indigenous flowering plants out of steel. Barbara will be sharing with us a little insight into her process as an artist, her thematic inspiration and her background as artist and Blacksmith.
“As a sculptor working primarily in steel, I enjoy the physical hands-on experience that comes with altering this material to serve my purposes. I cut, forge, weld, and cold-work this hard but malleable material. My approach to sculpture reaffirms the traditional processes and the essential elements of the medium, and the textural and visual qualities of the material often highlight ironic contrasts for me. “
I do hope to see you all here at The Craig Saturday afternoon!
