John Bisbee: New Blooms
Jan 18 - May 26View Gallery
New work by the inventive Maine sculptor John Bisbee. Bisbee’s works are created out of steel spikes, manipulating the nails individually and then welding them together for the finished form. For New Blooms Bisbee is making a series of floral-inspired pieces that will include, among other works, a field of steel flowers.
Bisbee, a sculptor in residence at Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, has had solo exhibitions at the Albright-Knox Museum, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Portland Museum of Art. New Blooms is the first time Bisbee’s work has been on view in a Vermont museum. On view in the Cynthia O. and Donald B. Murphy Gallery of the Pizzagalli Center for Art and Education.
