"The three qualities - grace, beauty, and fortitude - are presented trhough sculptures that seems so delicate and emphemeral, but at the same time very strong and resonate."

Rebecca Niederlander, a recipient of the ARC Grant from the Durfee Foundation, exhibits work from her Family Tree series.  These are hovering, animated hanging works made from plastic insulated copper electrical wire that create a space filled with energy and determination.  In these pieces, all elements are connected, with each aspect modulated by the subtle movement of the whole.

Leigh Salgado, a leading proponent of sculpted drawing, exquisitely transforms archival paper with Exacto knives to eviscerate the negative space between the lines in her ink drawings, while texture and shadows reinforce a physical experience.  Her delicate objects exude sensuality as well as a quiet strength.

Coleen Sterritt, represented by d.e.n. contemporary, is a professor of sculpture, and has been recognized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles by being part of its permanent collection.  Her commanding works emanate a grounding, powerful force while maintaining a gentle grace.

GraceBeautyFortitude allows viewers to engage with and experience multi-faceted sculptural works of art.
