Resonance: Brian Benfer & Carlton Bradford

May 16 - June 14, 2014

 

Carlton Bradford's work is inspired by recognizable imagery- musical instruments, tools, silverware, and firearms. Expressing his keen observations and wit through exquisitely crafted wood and metal sculptures, Bradford causes the viewer to experience the common object in new and surprising ways.  Bradford is an Associate Professor and tChair of the 3D and Extended Media Division in the School of Art at the University of Arizona.

Brian Benfer will be creating his monumental bone ash "chalkboards" in the gallery the week of the opening.  He has worked in a variety of media, including site-specific installations, sculpture, video, ceramics, painting and performance art. Benfer received an MFA from Mason Gross School for the Arts at Rutgers University and currently lives and teaches in San Diego, California.

 

Reception for the Artists:

May 16th, 6 - 8 PM
