Artists show new body of work at Scottsdale Gallery February 6th, 2014 through March 8, 2014
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gebert Contemporary is featuring the innovative artwork of Michelle Stuhl and Howard Werner in a much-anticipated exhibition from February 6th 2014, through March 8th, 2014. Stuhl is presenting a body of work using different mediums from her previous shows. Werner's sculptures will be mostly made of palm, mesquite and carob.
Stuhl's pieces are influenced by travels through one of the most historic cities in the state of Guanajuato in Mexico. The works are graphite drawings on large stretched and framed canvases depicting the mineral and silver ruins in Mineral de Pozos, Mexico. An additional epic installation is featured on the gallery's largest wall (12' x 16') with hand formed pure copper and silver 'nuggets' of various sizes and forms.
Werner's "Slit Drum" stands over 8 feet high carved from palm and holds the main gallery floor with several other palm pieces that either stand alone or work as a pair. An elegant bench of chinaberry supported by a steel frame is offered as a functional piece.
