View outstanding, small three-dimensional work by artists of the region in the Sculpture Center’s juried exhibition, After the Pedestal, the 8th Exhibition of Small Sculpture from the Region. Prominent sound and installation artist Johnny Coleman [pictured] of Oberlin has chosen 30 pieces by 17 sculptors and one collaboration from a diverse pool of applicants. Coleman says on the sculptures, “In reflecting upon the work selected, an open weave of recurrent themes began to emerge: the exploration of place/dwelling and memory, alongside of interior/intuitive spaces of the mind. I continue to look to, and learn from these artists and their work. I am excited to be immersed within an artistic region as rich as this.”
