Sculpture Springs Anew in New Hope

Many of us are becoming convinced that the natural

habitat

of sculpture is the great outdoors. New Hope Arts opens "Sculpture

New Hope 2003, Indoors and Out" this week, an exhibition featuring

more than 70 pieces by 35 artists and including seven long-term

outdoor

sculpture installations in and around New Hope. The celebratory

opening

is at at Union Square on West Bridge Street on Saturday, June 14,

from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is $15 per person and includes food and

an open wine bar.

The show’s featured artists include Christoph Spath, Kate Brockman,

Harry Gordon, Rob Ressler, Dana Stewart, Dan Kainz, and Bob Emser.

Also represented are Ava Blitz, Rain Harris, Dan Kaimz, Charles

Kumnick,

Julia Stratton and many more.

The outdoor host sites include Union Square, New Hope Solebury

Library,

the Wedgwood Inn, New Hope Historical Society, Golden Door Gallery,

and the New Hope Mule Barge.

On Sunday, June 15, at 3 p.m., New Jersey artist Susanne Pitak Davis

and New York artist Mary Shelley will give a gallery talk at the Union

Square site about their work and about some of the adversity they

fact creating work that defies conventional definitions. Whether high

art, low art, folk art, or pop art, this work remains popular with

the public.

Davis is well known for her colorful sculptures and whimsical angels

embedded with found objects. Shelley creates carved, painted, and

gold-leafed narrative bas reliefs that immortalize such local features

as the Frenchtown Launderette or the Melrose Diner.

The exhibition includes an Indoor Exhibition housed at Union Square

in 4,500 square feet of raw warehouse space and seven monumental scale

works installed throughout New Hope. All works on exhibit are for

sale. A guide to outdoor installations will be available at the show

and other key locations throughout New Hope.
