November 7, 2015 - January 10, 2016

"The Dog's Notes" is a solo exhibit of Taiwanese sculptor Poren Huang's work. Huang uses the dog as a creative starting point for his sculptures that suggest human feelings and behaviors.

The second, "WAH Bridges Man’s Best Friend: Dog," a group exhibit curated by Yuko Nii has works that depict "Man’s Best Friend" in a variety of mediums. The show includes internationally known artists, photographer William Wegman and painter Eric Ginsburg.

The WAH CENTER is a Brooklyn-based non-profit organization founded in 1996 by artist and philanthropist Yuko Nii. It is a multifaceted, multicultural art center whose mission is to coalesce the diverse artistic community.

SPEAKING VOLUMES ...AND VOIDS


SPEAKING VOLUMES ...AND VOIDS
August 8 - September 20, 2015 

Opening Reception: Saturday, August 8, 3-5 pm

Group exhibition curated by Anne Stanner, president of Sculptors Alliance.
Volume and voids are essential components of sculpture, and speaking volumes refers to larger messages sculptural works convey. The exhibit explores and demonstrates the concepts of volumes and voids, as interpret by 15 artists with diverse approaches to sculpture. 

Barbara Lubliner's pieces in “SPEAKING VOLUMES…AND VOIDS” are geometric shapes delineated with line segments and vectors created from plastic bottles. The empty transparent cavities are put together to suggest the volume of sculpture without opaque mass. The bottles are clearly visible yet disappear, as they become part of the whole. Obviously re-purposing plastic bottles into playful art shifts the focus from environmental blight to creative production.
