The Art of Deborah Dendler
November 3 - December 31, 2015
Artist Deborah Dendler will exhibit her work at the Acton Memorial Library during the months of November and December.
Dendler is a sculptor as well as a painter who has exhibited widely, garnering numerous awards. In this exhibition, her three dimensional bronze work will be displayed in the glass case in the Library’s Solarium, and her drawings and bas reliefs will be exhibited in the Library’s Meeting Room.
Ms. Dendler says of her work:
I make sculpture because I see something that is so beautiful that I want it to last forever. I want time to stand still so I can look at it completely. Or, I see something so arresting, or so quintessentially human that I can’t get the image out of my head. I see shapes, volumes and contours, highlights and shadows and I’m interested in eliminating all extraneous details to find the fundamental forms underneath. I look for graceful shapes full of movement that are interesting from every side – sculpture in the round needs to hold up in all directions.
The human condition is the main subject of my work. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit and find the human form the most perfect and eloquent expression of the human spirit. A sculpture’s gesture, movement, curves, contours, texture, shape, volumes, forms and structure all work together to reveal the interior space of the spirit.
There will be an opening reception on Sunday, November 8 from 2:30-4, when the artist will be available to discuss her work and work processes. Everyone is welcome.
Exhibitions are free and handicapped accessible. Exhibitions in the library meeting room are available for viewing whenever the library is open and the room is not in use for a meeting. Please check the library Events Calendar for availability.
