In Search of Motion: John William Cavanaugh

April 5 - June 14, 2009

John Cavanaugh, a master of hammered lead, introduced the method of shaping the material by hammering at the outside edges of a lead sheet and working toward the center. This innovative technique allowed him to present an energetic and dramatic figurative expression. The works in this exhibition demonstrate an ethereal sense of movement in more than 40 sculptures in hammered lead, aluminum, bronze, ceramics, and wax.
