Amy Kaslow Gallery Light the Night Event

April 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm UTC+0

Washington, D.C. Release: April 15. 2021. For immediate release.
Amy Kaslow Gallery’s Light the Night event brings sculptor Noah James Saunders and his mesmerizing collection of rotating torsos, busts, and tableaus, celebrating the male form in galvanized steel wire. Come flash your cellular phone light at one of Saunder’s works and create your own art sculpting shadows against our whitewashed walls! This last weekend of the show will feature a visit from the artist and outdoor reception: Friday April 23th and Saturday April 24th, 7:30 p.m  to 9:30 p.m.

Noah James Saunders brings us the male human form, sinewy and powerful. The searching eyes to the brawny shoulders, the body mechanics of these wonderful pieces fill the room with presence.“I speak in wire; and faces are my language,” says the Athens, Georgia-based artist. For thirty years, the largely self-taught sculptor has manipulated metal wire, inventing new techniques and honing his talent in the US and in Europe. Today, his works are feats of artistry and engineering.

Saunders’ works are experiential and intimate. By day, the heads, torsos, and tableaus turn, and with every rotation they create a new expression, a new figure. After dark is another dimension as the artist invites us to flash our own cellular phone light at life-sized sculptures that throw an array of contoured faces and forms along the gallery’s whitewashed walls. All in shadow, all commanding.

Visit Amy Kaslow Gallery for our Art at Night event on Friday April 23rd or Saturday April 24th from 7:30pm – 9:30pm to meet the artist and sculpt your own shadows. Masks and social distancing are required. Reception outside on the patio. The number of guests allowed inside the gallery at one time will be limited for safety. Street parking is available.
