Join us for a film screening about the life and work of sculptor Arlene Abend, produced and directed by Daylight Blue Media.

With endless determination and unwavering commitment to her craft, Syracuse-based sculptor Arlene Abend has developed a body of work in steel, bronze, and resin that effortlessly moves between whimsy and gravitas. Combining elements of realism and abstraction, Abend’s sculpture addresses topics ranging from social justice to family dynamics to the natural world. What unites her body of work is the artist’s constant drive to experiment with methods and materials, always asking herself, “what if?” as she approaches each new project.

This film sheds light on Abend’s innovative nature as well as her strength and resilience as both a woman and an artist.
