Students, Faculty, and Artists turn out for Structure(d) Observations opening

Structure(d) Observations was co-curated by Gallery Director and Associate Professor of Art History Erin Devine and Assistant Professor of Sculpture Zac Jackson. NOVA-Woodbridge’s Sculpture program was initiated with the arrival of Jackson in 2013. Sculpture classes have added an additional understanding of design concepts in the program’s foundational areas, furthering materials and processes from which art students can create. Sculpture(d) Observations was intended to invite artists who stretch the boundaries of sculpture from object of contemplation to an awareness of material and space in how we experience our surroundings.
