This Saturday, the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco (SFMCD) will be unveiling their first exhibition for 2014.
Titled A Sense of Balance: The Sculpture of Stoney Lamar, it is a retrospective of the artist whose works have been known for crafting primarily through unique approaches to multi-lathe sculptural pieces, embodying a distinct sense of line and movement. Lamar allows the shape, color and modeling of the wood to determine the work’s finished appearance, and along with incorporations of new and experimental pieces, the exhibition is a presentation of the artist’s intimate glimpse into the enormous talent and vision that is inherent into the works.
A Sense of Balance is part of an exhibition tour, which first debuted at the Asheville Art Museum in North Carolina, and among the institutions the exhibition will be heading includes the Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum and the Arkansas Arts Center. The Museum of Craft and Design offers a sample of what’s to come in the exhibition on their website at www.sfmcd.org. It feature an asymmetrical triangular work titled Blue Tree Shoes, which according to the Asheville Art Museum (who provided the photo) it stands over 70 inches, and is made from walnut, steel, and milk paint.
A Sense of Balance is on view until March 23rd.
