David L. Robertson: Gladding, McBean Photography

January 5 – February 15, 2008
Reception: January 11, 7-9 PM
(begins at 6 PM for members)

David L. Robertson’s photographs of the Gladding, McBean factories in Lincoln record a building rich in history.

 

As the oldest working manufacturer of terracotta sculpture in the US, their abandoned loft spaces and bits of statuary are beautifully captured in Robertson’s black and white and color photographs. Through close-up views of repeated elements and atmospheric studies of enveloping spaces, he provides a history of a place at once vibrant and current, as well as shuttered and forgotten.

Linda FitzGibbon: Recent Ceramic Sculpture

March 7- April 18, 2008
Reception: March 14, 7-9 PM
(begins at 6 PM for members)

Linda FitzGibbon creates a surreal world in her ceramic sculptures, pulling from literary and artistic sources.  The whimsical nature of her portraits, constructed of realistically depicted produce, results from her offbeat substitutions.  Avocados stand in for eyes, a pumpkin for a hat, and cupcakes for breasts in FitzGibbon’s work.

Reception: April 11, 7-9 PM

Elegant sculptural works by Charlene Reinhart focus largely on the female form.
