On Friday, January 6th, beginning at 5:00 p.m., as our feature Artist for Gallery walk and for the first week of January, held over by popular request The Venue will host an opening for Bert Gilbert, The Metal Master.
Bert received a BA in Sculpture and Painting from Indiana University in 1983, but, allowed many years to pass artistically fallow while creating a family, home, and remodeling business in Bloomington, Gilbert Construction. Yes, the same fellow who may have designed and constructed your home addition, the same fellow that underwrites you favorite show on WFIU, when he turned 50 decided to return to the sanctuary of his youth, making art.
Invigorated by the amazing iron casting workshops at Sculpture Trails of Solsberry, Indiana, Bert discovered an instant affinity in working with metal, forged in the steel mills and smelting plants of Northern Indiana where he spent his college summers. In Bert’s own words, “The work of the Surrealists and “primitive” art, as well as the questing spirit of Bruce Nauman, have been the greatest influence on my sculpture.
The Venue challenged Bert to create a body of metal sculpture that manifested his creative style, and was small enough and affordable enough to practically become a part of one’s home collection. We believe he has more than met that challenge.
On Friday, refreshments will be served in the usual manner, and our full collection of art, selected to serve your holiday gift needs, will be on display for purchase. You can visit the following link for free parking options near The Venue:
