Main Gallery: May 5 – June 26 Sky Line, a group sculpture exhibition
Curated by Ben Zask
Skyline is an installation of three-dimensional artwork by artists who have made sculpture to fit along the perimeter of the main gallery of the LOFT on a 7” deep shelf. The curator, Ben Zask, is looking for the emerging patterns and silhouettes in the collection of objects as the line of sculpture wraps around the entire gallery space at eye level. His interest is in creating an installation where the whole gallery becomes unified as a Skyline. Zask is focused on sustainable practice in sculpture, thus the majority of sculpture will be constructed of found materials and mixed media.

SBC Studio: May 5 – May 28, 2016 Tracey Weiss, PET
Tracey Weiss uses PET plastic (plastic water and soda bottles) that she has found or collected, saving them from the landfill or obligatory “recycling”. She not only using these found materials as a conscious effort to be environmentally responsible, but also as a commentary on the plastic itself. While our consumer production has moved more and more towards plastic over the last few decades, we are finding ourselves surrounded by a plastic environment of our own creation.
