Opening Reception: Wednesday, April 1, 2015
Spiral Twister, 2014
Glenn Zweygardt, Professor emeritus, NYS College Ceramic Arts at Alfred University has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, and has been deeply engaged in his studio practice for 40-plus years. His shows include such venues as the International Sculpture Symposium, Standstead in Montreal Canada, Jingdezhen Institute in China, the James a Michener Museum in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and the Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita State University, Kansas and those are just a few of the museums and galleries Zweygardt’s work has been exhibited. I am pleased that the Lockhart Gallery will be exhibiting Glenn Zweygardt’s sculpture. Through his work Zweygardt forges his connection to nature in that many of the sculpture are installed outside in nature thereby enhancing the natural material of which the sculpture is made, steel, glass, and stone.
Each piece seems to possess its own embedded narrative. While Zweygardt asserts those stories contain his life experiences and are “immersed in my perception of a collective consciousness,” this curator however, envisions a foreign landscape populated with signs and markers of a place, an environment yet to be reached. These markers, sculptures, are signposts moving the viewer towards a horizon beyond which a great adventure awaits. I invite you to attend the opening reception of Allegany Organic and to meet the artist on Wednesday, April 1 at 5 p.m. in Lockhart Gallery.
The SUNY Geneseo galleries are free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
Lockhart Gallery is located 26 Main Street, Geneseo, NY; the hours are Wednesday and Thursday: 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday: 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
