The Female Form: Go Figure
September 9, 2017 - October 10, 2017
This three-artist exhibit is a collaboration between the Groton School and NESA. The exhibit is in the Christopher C. Brodigan Gallery and is open Monday – Friday from 9 – 5.
The female form has inspired artists throughout history. The exhibit presents three very different interpretations of women. Each sculptor has a unique story to tell.
Ruth Rosner sculpts women of all races and ages who evolve from discarded objects, rusted metal, wire, plaster, and clay. Empowered by the yoking together of shards from industry and earth, her women stand as guardians, oracles, and voices for the voiceless and unheard.
Melanie Zibit sculpts in the abstract. Madonna, meaning “My Lady,” is a representation of the character of the Virgin Mary, the archetype of a mother and child. Relevant today – some women pursue roles as a mother and nurturer at home. This piece reminds us that for some women, self-actualization can resemble traditional gender roles.
Claudia Olds Goldie’s ceramic sculpture, Weight Bearing Exercise, investigates the complex contradictions of body, mind, and perception. She examines how living and aging changes the psyche and physical body.
