SALISBURY — Jean Greer, former public art director for the Charlotte Arts and Science Council, recently juried the 2011 Salisbury Sculpture Show, “Discover What’s Outside.”
Norvell Best in Show Award “Geyser” by Harry McDaniel, Asheville. Displayed at the corner of Liberty and Main streets in the brick planter.
Judge’s comments: The finely-crafted kinetic sculpture surpasses all the selection criteria. “Though small, its intimacy attracts visitors and it would be suitable for a small sculpture garden.”
Second Place “Over & Up” by Robert Winkler, Asheville. Displayed on the lawn at the Rowan Public Library.
Judge’s comments: The scale, multiple perspectives and mastery of materials make this a beautiful sculpture. “All support foundations should be underground and the sculpture higher, so that the work appears to be flying.”
Third Place “Origins Passage,” by Glenn Zweygardt, Alfred Station, N.Y. Displayed at the 400 Building at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College.
Judge’s comments: “Conveys a primeval feeling through the workmanship of the bronze and the simple curves of the forms … The surfaces are beautifully textured.” They “express many layers of meaning and offer a sense of mystery of other cultures.”
Citizen’s Choice Award Offered for the first time this year through an online survey: “Over & Up” by Robert Winkler.
The 2011 Salisbury Sculpture Show, which is paid for by private donations and grants, will continue to be on exhibit until Dec. 31. To view sculpture locations, visit www.salisburyart.com .
