Suspended! Sculpture from ArtPrize 2015
December 12, 2015 - March 27, 2016
Explore sculpture from a different perspective, with works that hang from the ceiling, compel curiosity, and inspire wonder. The sculpture in Suspended! was seen at the ArtPrize Seven venue hosted by WMU’s Gwen Frostic School of Art, and curated by KIA Director of Collections and Exhibitions Vicki Wright. Joel S. Allen (Steamboat Springs, Colorado) creates groups of colorful, hand-wrapped fiber pendants. Russell Prather (Marquette, Michigan) challenges our perception of matter with carefully aligned, subtly painted sheets of polyester film. Inspired by nature and historical costume, Irene LaVon Walker (Ferndale, Michigan) weaves ethereal, dreamlike forms.
