Rob Schouten Gallery presents “The Third Dimension” Sculpture Show in March

Posted in Community News, Member News, Visual Art
February 24, 2015It may not yet be the dawning of Aquarius into the fifth dimension, but we’ve got “ The Third Dimension” right here. Step into Rob Schouten Gallery’s March sculpture show, “The Third Dimension,” which opens Friday, March 6 and runs through March 30.  Walk through the gallery and sculpture garden and let artists Penelope Crittenden, Dan Freeman, Sharon Spencer and Lloyd Whannell take you to places you haven’t ventured lately. Take the time to stand still in front of these sculptures; take a long look and let the third dimension sink in.

Each of these sculptors explores unique figures, forms and processes, and each follows their own instincts using a variety of materials: stone, bronze, metal, wood, color. Exploring the craft, each creates their own singular artistic atmosphere, including the spiritual, whimsical, beautiful, rusty, feathered, angular, round, tall, small, large, inside, outside, sharp, sweet, strong, symbolic and curious.

This March the gallery is full of three-dimensional objects inside and out, created for your contemplation and your pleasure. Come on over and step out of the everyday into “The Third Dimension.”

We’d love for you to also join us for light refreshments and a chance to meet the sculptors from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 6 during Greenbank Farm’s “First Friday at the Farm” event, when the Farm’s  galleries, shops, cafe and market welcome visitors to enjoy a relaxed afternoon of fine art, good food, lively conversation and the exquisite natural beauty of this special place.
