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.
