Sunday, February 13, 2022
$8 General Admission | Free for Members
Join us for a screening of “Stretching Boundaries: The Life and Work of Sculpture Arlene Abend,” a film about the life and work of sculptor Arlene Abend, produced and directed by Daylight Blue Media. After the screening stay for a Q&A with one of the film’s creators, Courtney Rile.
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.
No pre-registration required.
Arlene Abend’s exhibition, Resolute, is currently on view through April 17, 2022.
“Stretching Boundaries: The Life and Work of Sculpture Arlene Abend” is a Daylight Blue Media production.
