Perhaps more than any other medium sculpture requires the unique marriage of material and process. Wood and stone are carved, subtracting mass while other materials are combined as in welded steel or assembled found objects.
'Fluid Reformations' refers to processes borrowed from craftsmen or women working with forged metal, blown glass or wheel thrown ceramic. "Fluid Reformations: Smith, Gaffer, Potter" offers a cross section of the work of contemporary sculptors working in these traditional mediums.

A selection of artist made books from around the world and our annual open call. This exhibition promotes and encourages artists’ unconventional ideas about books.

Curated through a number of open calls held internationally and nationally.
This exhibition, works selected will become part of this traveling exhibition.
We live in the 21st century, the century of technology, of computers and mass media, all of which are separating us and our children from the written word.
