Bronze exhibit debuts at New Leaf Gallery

By

A New Leaf Gallery/Sculpturesite at Cornerstone Sonoma will host the exhibition “In Bronze,” on view from Jan. 12 to March 30. And the gallery will be hosting a reception from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12.

In this exhibition of bronzes by three internationally recognized sculptors, the gallery explores three very distinctive approaches for creating striking abstract forms of enduring grace.

The three sculptors are:

• Clement Meadmore (1929-2005) created his diminutive models in resin, which he would meditatively cut and assemble in endless configurations, to be expertly fabricated by a foundry into bronze (or aluminum for his monumental works) at the scale that he felt would work best.

• Richard Erdman most often begins with carving an impossibly delicate and elegant stone sculpture at one of his studios in Vermont or Carrara, Italy. His most successful works are turned into a cast bronze edition. He is known for exploring a particularly eloquent form at various scales, in both bronze and stone.

• Hans Van de Bovenkamp creates one-of-a-kind sculptures from sheet metal, coaxing the rigid material into carefully composed organic forms that meld his background in architecture and his life-long interest in the spiritual, sacred sites of the world.

SculptureWALK is the gallery’s latest creation: a sculpture garden showcasing more than 60 free standing, monumental, kinetic, and water sculptures throughout the Cornerstone garden complex. Curator-led tours are available by appointment.

A New Leaf Gallery | Sculpturesite is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  at Cornerstone Sonoma, 23588 Arnold Drive (Highway 121), Sonoma.
