ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

This exhibit is a commentary on resilience and endurance. Inspiration for this show comes from human nature and is also a nod to the nature of bronze, a material known for its durability indoor or outdoor, rain or shine.

“Rain or Shine—In or Out” showcases more than 50 sculptures from “The ASL Bronze Artists,” a group of more than 30 New-York–based sculptors.

“The ASL Bronze Artists come from every corner of the globe. Some of the work is satirical, some is a celebration of positive energy, joy, even vulnerability,” says Oscar Garcia. “We chose themes open enough so artists can express what they wanted to communicate, what was important to them.”

ABOUT THE ASL BRONZE ARTISTS

​The ASL Bronze Artists feature more than 30 New-York–based sculptors who have exhibited internationally and nationally. The strength of the group lies in the variety of its members who come from every corner of the globe.

Twice a week, they meet with Oscar Garcia at the Art Students League of New York where he mentors the group on sculpting in wax and bronze. Mr. Garcia and his group cast bronze through the “lost wax process,” a method dating from the 3rd millennium BC.

For this group, Bronze is a preferred medium not only because it is corrosion-resistant, resilient, and stronger than stone but also because it is carvable and weldable, allowing artists to bring their vision to life in its finest details. It takes on a delicate and powerful form, as it captures movement and emotions, emanating life-like energy.
