Last month on Saturday evening, April 25 I attended the gala opening of "The Power of Three" at the Cheryl Newby Gallery located in Pawley's Island, South Carolina. The exhibition presents twenty four works by three figurative sculptors: Amy Kann, Gwenn Marcus, and me. Each of us have very different styles and approach to our work.
In the words of gallery founder and owner, Cheryl Newby: "Art serves as a channel of expression to release, elevate, and understand our innermost conflicts, as well as our aspirations, hopes, and ideals. I like to believe that humans see art and take it in; like breathing, subconsciously it affects us. The POWER to communicate is what it's all about".
Below, is a picture of the three of us with Cheryl Newby in the beautiful gallery on April 25, images from the "Power of Three" catalogue, and additional photos and memories of our opening night. The exhibition runs until May 23, 2015.

All works were beautifully placed with room to walk around the pedestals.
Some sculptures were displayed on furniture . . . as one would envision in a home environment.
