an exhibit featuring Guy’s wall-mounted inlay pieces and Marco’s free-standing kinetic sculpture
December 8, 2011 – January 2, 2012
Opening Reception & Meet the Artist: Thursday, December 8, 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Using reclaimed wood from spontaneous finds, father and son duo Guy and Marco Rando create whimsical sculptures evoking the forms of nature. Working in a shared studio space, Guy and Marco Rando share everything – from materials and tools to inspiration. Scavenged wood, or as Guy calls it, “sacred wood” is the fundamental element that ties the two artists’ work together. Both feel that the natural forms and grain of the wood guide the path that their work will take. The philosophy is that “it’s all about finding the meaning behind one’s own work; as time goes on, life is giving you the path.”
Members of The Art League since 2006, “Transitions” is the Randos’ first solo exhibit in our Gallery. Guy holds degrees in Landscape Architecture from SUNY-Syracuse and Harvard University. Marco holds an Industrial Design degree from Pratt Institute and studied sculpture at Corcoran School of Art, Washington, DC.
(Gallery CLOSED December 25 and January 1)
