“Art in Dazzling Dimensions” is the sculpture exhibition for the month of April at the Southern Shore Art Association Gallery in Michigan City, opening First Friday April 3, from 5-8pm (CST). All artworks are in three dimensions and are fabricated of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, glass, ceramic, plaster and alabaster. A mixed-media work called “Pittsburgh” is formed from anthracite coal, limestone, iron ore and resin. Much of the works are in the form of maquettes, which are demonstration pieces.
The twenty-four artists represented are from around the country and many have achieved status of public sculpture throughout the Midwest. Ivan Chermel’s work was selected for exhibit at the National Sculpture Society and Herbert George has exhibited internationally. Terrence Karpowicz, Richard Kiebdaj and Ruth Aizuss Migdal have been on public exhibit in Michigan City. Tom Scarff, Christine Rojek and David Noguchi’s sculptures have been on display on the grounds of Purdue North Central campus.
“The assembly of the works of these recognized sculptors bespeaks the quality of artwork being presented at Southern Shore Art Association Gallery in their monthly exhibitions”, says Larry Jensen, Exhibition Curator. “The Chicago Tribune has cited three of the Gallery’s shows as their “Pick of the Week”. This exhibit brings the work of some of the most notable contemporary sculptors to Michigan City, which is rapidly becoming a major player on the Midwest art scene.”
“Art in Dazzling Dimensions” opens with a free reception to meet the artists on Michigan City’s festive First Friday Artwalk, April 3 from 5–8pm (CST) and continues through Sunday, April 26. Gallery hours are every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 12– 5pm (Gallery is closed on Easter Sunday April 5). The Gallery is located at 724 Franklin in the Uptown Arts District.
