Zenith’s founder and owner, Margery Goldberg, leads the exhibition as an expert wood fabricator and carver by shining a light on this medium that is experiencing a new wave of extraordinary wood sculptors. Continuing in her path are wood sculptors Aaron Laux, who’s wood sculpture retains the original bark while adds mosaic to the medium. Ibou N’Diaye with his 1000’s of years of traditional African Sculpture to draw from, he tells the story of the life of the Dogon’s of his motherland and Larry Ringgold, who relies on mother natures wrath to have her way with fallen tree branches and he puts them together to form animal and human forms that defy conventional wisdom of what is possible; each creating a new perspective on the traditional craft. Metal sculptors, Richard Binder, Julie Girardini, William Ludwig, Carol Newmyer, and Paul Martin Wolff who show the vast difference in the way artists use metal by fabricating, casting, adding other material like glass rocks, they create human, abstract, spiritual, animal and traditional sculpture.
