Art Exhibition “Fire & Ice” – Grosse Pointe /Detroit Metro Area/ April 15, 2011 – May 28, 2011
Fire is commonly associated with heat, passion, destruction and re-growth, warmth and color.
Ice conjures up feelings of cold, purity, determination, or feelings withheld.
Glass workers, metal smiths, jewelers, and ceramic artists courageously wield fire to manipulate their materials. Ice references glass and diamonds and provides a dynamic opposition to fire. Challenge yourself to expand your boundaries – create Fire & Ice
The Fire and Ice Exhibition at The Grosse Pointe ART Center seeks to shine a spotlight on our local glass workers, metal smiths, jewelers and ceramic artists.
That was the challenge for the another annual exhibition organized by Grosse Pointe Art Center.
That was one of the biggest shows. There were shown about 80 pieces of art – sculptures – made from metal, ceramic, glass and wood, many paintings, a lot of jewelries and some photographs.
The juror of that exhibition was M.E. Ware
Again at that show, which gathered many great artists, their friends and many guests.
The most interesting thing to everyone, was the sculpture /made of stainless steel/ of Eugene Griffin, representing a tree and its connection to the space.
Here are the three winners:
First place, Eguene Griffin
Second place,Shelly Rothenuhler with “Opposite Attract”
Third Place, Birgit Hüttemann-Holz with “Cassandra in Fukushima”
Here are some pictures from the exhibition:
