Cathy Gregory Studio Gallery: Friday, 15 May 2015

 Cathy Gregory Studio Gallery Hosts Opening for David Werner

David Werner: Hammered Steel at Cathy Gregory
May 15 to June 26, 2015
Opening reception Friday, May 15, from 6 to 9 pm

David Werner's work encompasses traditional blacksmithing – cutlery, weapons, tools – and the use of traditional forms and techniques where he creates contemporary sculpture suggestive of tools and mechanical apparatus in elegant formation with one another. The strength of his work lies not just in his mastering the technique, but a vision of elegance informing the subtle beauty of a hand tool or sculpture, knife or broad axe. Even a basic smithing tool in raw steel appeals due to his aesthetic consideration for its form. The work has solid character – each piece with a story to tell and each visually fascinating.

Gallery hours: Thursday - Saturday 11 am to 5 pm

2000 S 39th Street
