Hayes, 1931-2013, was an American sculptor noted for pioneering sculptures in metal and for his work’s graceful curves, shapes abstracted from sketches of objects and ideas. His earlier works were usually black, however, early in this century, he began adding bright and bold colors to his work, which became his iconic style. The unnamed piece at Chapman is a fine example of his later work.

Hayes’s work is sought after around the world and displayed in the most prestigious galleries, such as the Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum, and Smithsonian American Art Museum.

In reference to his work, Hayes once said: “Each sculpture begins with the ink and gouache drawings that I do each day. The forms and shapes, and their interaction, are delineated on paper, with the color showing each different form. The drawings themselves are derived from copious notebooks of sketches that I make to depict objects and shapes that I respond to in nature and the environment around me. Later they are painted with several coats of primer and weather resistant colors. The coloration of the pieces is determined by what I see in the shapes themselves. And though the pieces have individual titles, I leave the interpretation of each to the realm of the viewer’s imagination. The sculptures are out in the open and can be viewed under different weather and light conditions as they are all made for out of door exposure. I have a strong conviction about art in public areas where it can be seen and enjoyed in uninhibiting surroundings.”

The Hayes sculpture at Chapman can be viewed daily. For extensive information about Hayes, please visit his website at (www.DavidHayes.com).

Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, NC, Holds Benefit for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue – Aug. 20, 2016

May 18, 2016

On Saturday, Aug. 20, 2016, from 10am – 6pm, Grovewood Gallery will host a benefit and adoption drive for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue (BWAR), a No-Kill animal rescue organization in Asheville, NC. Grovewood will donate 10% of gallery sales from the day to BWAR’s “Help Me Heal Fund” that provides care for orphaned animals with serious medical conditions, helping them recover so they can be adopted into loving homes.

During the benefit, customers can save 10% on all ceramic art, take in a craft demonstration, and enter a raffle to win a “Tubby Cat” sculpture by Bandana Yardbirds and a set of hand-thrown porcelain critter mugs by Asheville artist Laura Cooke. Visitors will also have the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and take a free, self-guided tour of the artist studios on the Grovewood grounds from 11am – 4pm. Adoptable dogs and cats will be on location from noon – 4pm.

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue was founded in 2007 to provide the resources and life-saving programs to build a No-Kill community in Asheville. As a grassroots organization, BWAR operates an adoption center that is open to the public 365 days a year – making it easy to adopt, volunteer, and become involved in their No-Kill mission.

In addition to offering services to our community including free spay/neuter assistance and a pet food pantry, their Behavioral Counseling and Youth Education programs help promote a better understanding of, and respect for, companion animals.

“There’s a reason why Brother Wolf has such a loyal following in the community,” says Ashley Van Matre, Marketing Manager at Grovewood Gallery. “They have a strong vision and a really dedicated staff as well as a wonderful group of volunteers who work tirelessly to help animals in need and to raise awareness about the importance of pet adoption. It’s organizations like BWAR that help make Asheville a better place to live. Many of our staff have their own rescued fur babies at home, so this partnership just seemed like a natural fit. It’s going to be a good time for a good cause, and a wonderful opportunity to support our southern strays as well as some of our local and regional makers.”

The 10,000 sq.ft. Joyce B. Cambron Adoption Center, located at 31 Glendale Avenue, is home to up to 100 dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens each day. In this clean, happy, and energetic environment, animals receive mental stimulation and exercise through a variety of enrichment programs. BWAR’s dedicated volunteers ensure that each pet receives lots of love and attention until finding his or her forever home.

Grovewood Gallery is a family-owned, fine crafts destination located in the former weaving and woodworking complex of Biltmore Industries (built during 1917-1924), adjacent to The Omni Grove Park Inn in North Asheville. The gallery showcases traditional and contemporary craft, all handmade by American artisans.

City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department in North Charleston, SC, Announces Winners of “11th Annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition”

May 18, 2016

north-charleston-arts-festival-logo

Sculpture artists from across the nation applied to the “11th Annual National Outdoor Sculpture Competition and Exhibition”, displayed at the picturesque North Charleston Riverfront Park and presented as a component of the 2016 North Charleston Arts Fest. Organized annually by the City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department, this unique, eleven month exhibition offers established and emerging artists the opportunity to display their thought provoking, extraordinary sculptures, as well as compete for up to $16,250 in honorariums and awards.

Twelve out of 54 submissions were pre-juried into the exhibition by the juror, James Davis, ASLA, founder/president of Sculpture in the Landscape, a NC based firm.  Once installed at the exhibition site, Davis then made his selections for Best of Show, Outstanding Merit, and Honorable Mentions. After determining the award winners, he offered the following juror’s statement:

“What’s it supposed to be?” the elderly couple inquired as I was pondering my decisions for the awards. There was no signage yet so not even a title for them to go with. I told them the name of the piece, shared what it meant to me and suggested maybe they decide what it means to them. After a short pause, “Hmmmmmm…” was the reply.

Hmmmmmm, indeed! That’s what is so wonderful about art. Even if you don’t understand it, it can still make you feel Hmmmmmm!  I always think it’s better to know the message the artist is revealing, but missing that, if we just pause for a moment, we will know what it means to us! So the attraction might be the message or it could be the creativity or the craftsmanship or the design or the aesthetics or the complexity (or simplicity) or the attention to detail.  Sometimes it’s all of these!!!  As juror, that’s what I hope to find.

My choices of sculptures to take part in the exhibit were an effort to select pieces that presented a range of materials, colors, textures and emotions. My choices for the awards lean towards my personal notions of creativity, craftsmanship and attention to detail.

I hope all the visitors to this wonderful park will take some time to stop and reflect upon each sculpture. It may not be for the same reason but if they pause, I think they’ll find something to make them say Hmmmmmm!!”
