American Twist a Sculptors Guild Exhibition on Governors Island NYC
American Twist a Sculptors Guild Exhibition
Open Saturdays and Sundays 12-5pm
The venerable Sculptors Guild (79 years old and counting) returns to Governors Island for their traditional summer group show in Nolan Park, Building #15. This year’s timely theme, American Twist, features an exciting collaboration with artists from New Orleans’s Antenna Gallery, with a planned flow of shared work between NYC and New Orleans. The range of work shared reflects the diversity of Guild membership and inclination, and is enriched by the counterpoint of contributions from New Orleanian artists. Guild members designed their work to be travel-sized – fitting specific parameters – in preparation for a showing in Louisiana during the spring of 2017. The show also has some large-scale installations with videos, sound, and scents, as well as outdoor works, including a collaborative outdoor installation by Elizabeth Knowles and William Thielen that features a clustered wave of small, colorful flags that wrap around the side of the house, visible from a distance, welcoming viewers into the excitement of the show.
