This exciting exhibition at the John Natsoulas Gallery features the sculptures of John Buck, Shaun Burner, Deborah Butterfield, Franceska Gamez, Arthur Gonzalez, Ken Little, Manuel Neri, and Michael Stevens. Come see stunning examples of works by each of these world-renown artists.
Opening on January 10, the exhibition, titled A New Look at Sculpture, showcases figurative sculptures by world class artists, who each sensitively address humanist themes. The show will be open until February 23, 2024. Featuring diverse sculptures, made from bronze, plaster, wood, and ceramic, this exhibit offers the opportunity for close examination of the varied textures and forms these artists achieve. Large-scale sculptures like Deborah Butterfield’s over-life-size bronze horse and Shaun Burner’s and Franceska Gamez’s The Guardian speak to how expanding dimensions can convey the artists’ unique perspective. The exhibit highlights how unique material choices, such as Michael Steven’s and John Buck’s use of wood or Ken Little’s repurposing of discarded shoes, lend their works distinctive personality to reveal their inner worlds. A look at the importance of teacher and student relationships, demonstrated through the juxtaposition of the works of Manuel Neri and Arthur Gonzalez highlights the continual evolution of sculpture in modern and contemporary art.
The exhibition’s opening reception is to be held on Friday, January 12 from 7-9:00 PM. It will feature live music and free refreshments. The John Natsoulas Gallery is proud to also host a panel discussion with exhibition curator Sarah Poisner and artists Shaun Burner, Franceska Gamez, Arthur Gonzalez, and Michael Stevens on Saturday, February 3. They will speak about their respective sculptural practices and their artistic associations with Sacramento.
