About the Artist
Alan Binstock’s work primarily integrates stone, glass and steel. He constructs forms that evoke a dynamic material tension while simultaneously setting forth a harmonious balance between outer shape and inner structure. In addition to making sculpture, Mr. Binstock has worked as a Registered Architect and Project Manager in several area firms and at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center for several years. This ongoing education in construction methods and materials, along with his studies in yoga, inform his sculpture and challenge his aesthetic directions. Mr. Binstock was born and raised in the Bronx and currently lives in Mt. Rainier, MD.

About the Curator
Norman Parish was selected by the WSG to serve as a juror for this series of shows. Mr. Parish has owned and operated Parish Gallery-Georgetown in Washington, DC for the past eighteen years. The gallery was opened primarily, but not exclusively, to showcase contemporary visual artists of significance from Africa and the African Diaspora and lesser known local artists. Mr. Parish wanted to show high quality art that had been overlooked and give solo exhibitions to artists who deserved one, but had never had the opportunity. He came to the point of gallery owner having been a painter himself for over forty years.
