Curated by Kitty Wales and Sachiko Akiyama, Taking Noticebrings together a diverse group of contemporary sculptors who through careful observation and study reframe the human relationship with nature. Featured artists include: Sachiko Akiyama, Angela Cunningham, Tory Fair, Rachel Frank, Carly Glovinski, Chris Patch, Andy Rosen, Deborra Stewart-Pettengill, Jessica Strauss, Sarah Wagner, Kitty Wales.

 

Works included in Taking Notice address fragile eco-systems, humor, politics, and metaphor as well as trompe l’oeil, performance, and the tensions between human and animal.  All of the techniques used to make the exhibition’s sculptures involve patience and a high level of craftsmanship. In all cases, the art has a thoughtful presence that invites the viewer to pause and consider these interpretations of our complex natural world.
