Carbondale Arts presents a new solo retrospective exhibition of Jack Brendlinger’s sculptural works, opening on Thursday, September 12, from 6-8pm at the R2 Gallery located inside The Launchpad, at 76 S 4th Street in Carbondale. A member and gallery patron preview will take place at 5:30pm, and will include a short art talk before the public reception at 6pm.
Jack’s bronze sculptures are produced with the lost wax technique. With age, his work has become abstract, gravity defying, modern, and filled with whimsical characters. Now in his late eighties, Jack has had the most wonderful experience in creating all kinds of art, watercolors, acrylic painting, drawings, murals, ceramics and, of course, his main love: sculpture. In the past, Jack was a very active individual full of all the energies of life and his sculptures are a direct reflection of the excitement and pleasures of those robust activities.
This exhibition opens the same evening as “Transcultural Bonding In Clothing: Etar“. Both shows will be on display at the R2 Gallery through October 4, 2019.
