Glenn Zweygardt Sculpture Exhibition Opening Reception
Glenn Zweygardt Sculpture Exhibition Opening Reception

Description: For more than 40 years, Glenn has been an active sculptor and educator. With more than 50 solo exhibitions and multiple purchase awards to his name, he shows works both nationally and internationally. In 2007 he retired from his position as the Professor of Sculpture at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and was named Professor Emeritus. Zweygardt continues to sculpt, now as a full-time artist out of his studio in Alfred Station, N.Y. His creations of steel, ductile iron, stainless steel, cast glass, cast bronze and aluminum are often combined with stone from around the world. His sculptures range from monumental outdoor works to small, intimate pieces. Shafer Gallery Director Dave Barnes said he is excited for the opportunity to showcase the native Kansan’s work. "The thing is, Zweygardt’s art seems so simple at first, almost childlike,” Barnes said. “Upon reflection, there is a wonderful surreal tension between Zweygardt’s seemingly spontaneous, sometimes ephemeral, forms and his use of memorialized materials such as bronze and stone. It is a pleasure to experience such confident conception and execution knowing the career-long struggle it represents. We are pleased to have work of such merit and sophistication in the Shafer Gallery and grateful that Ron Micheals and the Sandzen Gallery in Lindsborg invited us to help share it with the folks of central Kansas.” Exhibition runs from August 11 to September 15. Gallery hours are 10 to 5 pm, M-Sat. Submitted by: Scott Beahm Shafer Art Gallery

Description: As the 20th century dawns, the separate worlds of New York City begin to blur together to tell their stories. Ragtime shines a light of the disparate lives of Harlem musicians, Upper-Middle Class families, and Immigrants, all while weaving their tales together in brilliant musical style.
