ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

This exhibit is dedicated to the past, present and future women and immigrants who have the courage to pursue their dreams against all odds.

“Bronze Art For Bronze Bells” showcases more than 50 sculptures from “The ASL Bronze Artists,” a group of more than 30 New-York–based sculptors.

This exhibit is a commentary on the plight of women and immigrants in today’s changing political climate. Inspiration for this show is derived from the diverse artists who make up The ASL Bronze Artists. Mostly female and/or foreign born, they embody a “cross-fertilization of imagination coming from every corner of the globe. Some of the work is satirical, of course, but also a celebration of positive energy, joy, even vulnerability,” says Oscar Garcia who is curating the exhibit. “We left it open so artists could express what they wanted to communicate, what was important to them in this new era.”

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 their own bronze through the “loss 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.
