Pierce Ball Gallery Presents 'The Art of Transformation', 9/20
by BWW News Desk - August 25, 2014

Transforming paper or clay into works of art is the theme of the new show at the Pierce Ball Gallery in Stamford. 'The Art of Transformation,' a one weekend only show, will be open to the public Saturday and Sunday September 20 - 21, 1-5pm. The show features the work of 2 artists - Deborah Weiss's works on paper and panel and Mindy Horn's ceramic vessels and sculptures. There will be a preview on September 19, 5-8pm. 'I selected these 2 artists because of the complimentary nature of both of their art. Both have a subtle intensity to their work. You look and look again, each time seeing something different,' said Elizabeth P. Ball, Director of the Pierce Ball Gallery. Deborah Weiss's work is an exploration of the effects of atmospheric conditions on land, water and the resulting patina of time. These elements inform her work and at times determine the subject matter. As an artist/printmaker, Weiss's work fuses the painterly with relief printmaking techniques on paper and panels. Her works are both meditative and hypnotic. Mindy Horn approaches all of her work as sculpture, whether or not it is functional. She looks at form, balance, texture and color, striving for her vessels and sculpture to generate a feeling of visual intent, a feeling that they always existed as they do now. In addition, the gallery will have on display and for sale paintings by 2 African elephants, Jabu and Thembi from Botswana. The Pierce Ball Gallery is the exclusive gallery for these special works of art. The Pierce Ball Gallery is located at 9 Webbs Hill Road, Stamford, CT off Exit 34 Merritt Parkway. For more information, call 203-329-1105. www.pierceballgallery.com (more...)

Sculptor Brian Grossman Receives National Honors
by BWW News Desk - August 22, 2014

This month the Department of Veterans Affairs and the American Legion Auxiliary concluded its final selection of winners for The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival (NVCAF). First Place in the category of sculpture is to be presented to Colorado artist Brian Grossman. The program is a national celebration of the talent competitions in art, creative writing, dance, drama and music for Veterans treated in the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) national health care system. Sculptor Brian Grossman is a renowned artisan who, although afflicted with multiple sclerosis, has triumphed in both stone carving and bronze sculpting. This award is the culmination of a year-long jury process by the Department of Veteran Affairs. The National Veterans Creative Arts Festival will be held October 27 through November 2, 2014 in Milwaukee Wisconsin. The VA medical facilities incorporate creative arts into their therapy programs to further rehabilitation for both inpatients and outpatients. The story of Grossman's perseverance showcases his success in the face of monumental obstacles. After serving four years with the US Coast Guard, Brian returned to Boulder to attend college. After completing his degree in art, he was diagnosed with MS. In spite of this progressively handicapping disease, Brian works in one of the most physically demanding mediums. The creative process is anything but gentle as he crafts in the unyielding materials of alabaster, marble and bronze. Yet, his abstract works speak to an inner beauty while their creation is paramount to his own therapy and serve as an inspiration to others. This recognition from the VA comes only months two of Grossman's sculptures were chosen as trophies for the 2013 and 2014 recipients of the MS Foundation's prestigious 'Barancik Prize.' The Barancik Prize is a grant awarded each year for innovative research in the cure and treatment of multiple sclerosis. 'We believe in the power and influence that one creative and driven individual can have on the course of future events in creating a world free of MS,' says Charles Barancik. Trilogy, the bronze sculpture which wins the VA Prize this year, was itself inspirational to the artist. As Grossman states, 'This specific bronze sculpture is best understood through the words which came to me while I was carving the stone original: The mechanism for learning is living. The mechanism for living is learning. Simply put, I am alive because of life's creative needs, not only sculpting, but living outside the box.' For more information on Brian Grossman, visit: BGSartworks.com or call Peter Trimarco 303.910.1884 MMG - Beyond Cinema are supporters of the MS Foundation and Bike MS, through their 2014 Sundance Media Studio and manage the relationship between artist Brian Grossman and the MS Foundation's 2013 and 2014 Barancik Award.
