This three-person exhibition will present sculptures by Elizabeth Atterbury, Gordon Hall and Anna Hepler, that were created to rest directly on the floor or gallery walls. The artists each employ spare, sometimes repetitive forms displaying a visibly direct use of materials (wood, ceramic, metal, concrete). The exhibition title alludes to each artists’ exceptional use of volume, scale and surface in each of their works and to the charged negative space that will exist between them. The exhibition will be installed much like an indoor sculpture garden, with each artist contributing multiple sculptures.
Spatial Relations is made possible in part by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The exhibition is curated by CMCA’s Executive Director & Chief Curator, Timothy Peterson in collaboration with Curatorial Assistant, Rachel Romanski.
