Souls of Forgotten Objects
December 1, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - December 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Exploring the intersection between trash and treasure, Souls of Forgotten Objects will include an exhibit, workshops and demonstrations that bring found or forgotten objects together to create something beautiful. Whether that is an old tree branch, bike tire, cardboard, colorful material, metal or paper, the exhibit welcomes artists to submit 2D or 3D work that takes these found or lost materials and turns them in to art. Curious, evocative, dynamic or meditative, SAC has invited artists to think outside the box, canvas or convention in submitting pieces for this spectacular exhibit.
ABOUT THE JUROR: Geoffrey Gorman
Geoffrey has been leading workshops, hosting panel discussions, and giving presentations for artists and arts groups for more than twenty-five years. With his extensive background in the arts, he brings a unique, humorous and fresh perspective on the world of artists, galleries and the business of art.
Geoffrey currently is a practicing artist, creating his original found material sculptures in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He shows his work around the United States and has also exhibited in China and South Korea. Over the last several years his unique sculptures have been written about in the New York Post, Southwest Art, American Craft, American Style and Cloth, Paper, Scissors.
Growing up on an old plantation in the country outside of Baltimore, MD, he refers to a “Huck Finn-like” environment; old quarries, woods filled with animals, dilapidated barns and fallen houses. Geoffrey was surrounded by a wide variety of animal and human characters.
Going to a variety of art colleges eventually led Geoffrey into designing and building contemporary furniture. From there he became a gallery dealer, curated shows, was an art consultant and coach for artists before becoming a full-time artist.
