The public is invited to attend a Works in Progress Reception on Wednesday, June 13th from 5:00 to 7:00pm, at the Sculpture Space studio at 12 Gates Street, West Utica. The reception provides an opportunity for the public to meet current artists-in-residence, view their artwork in progress and learn more about their creative process. Many of these artists have been working on these pieces for many weeks and have been experimenting with new techniques and materials. The artists-in-residence come to Utica to work in Sculpture Space’s studio without interruption and create new and groundbreaking work, with support from Sculpture Space. This quarterly event is a rare opportunity to “See Art Happening” by some of today’s most promising contemporary sculptors. The reception will feature works by current artists-in-residence Tom Hall (Syracuse, NY/ Tallahassee, FL) and J. Alex Schechter (Philadelphia, PA). These receptions are free to the public due to the generosity of Presenting Sponsor Bank of Utica. The restaurant sponsor is Symeon’s Greek Restaurant.
