Reclaimed Creations Exhibition

09/19/2019 to 11/25/2019

7700 Osler Dr, Towson, MD 21204

This fall, explore the amazing sculptures of Sayaka Ganz which the artist describes as “3D impressionism.” Ganz utilizes reclaimed plastic objects, such as discarded utensils, to create sculptures of animals, birds, and sea creatures in motion which are rich in color and energy. Although the works are pieced together from many disparate materials, when viewed from a distance, they appear visibly unified, as if they were painted with brush strokes. The exhibit explores how harmony can be perceived even in situations that appear chaotic from the inside. Experience how your perception can change when you step back from current problems and look at the larger picture. The exhibit also inspires visitors to contemplate the natural world, our habits of using and discarding the earth’s limited resources, and the impact of human behavior on the environment. In addition, Ganz presents her work within the context of a “Shinto animist belief that all things in the world have spirits,” causing viewers to consider whether plastic materials also have spirits. Reclaimed Creations is suitable for all ages. Gallery admission is free. Ms. Ganz will be present and offer a gallery talk on the exhibition opening day, Thursday, September 19 at 6:30 pm. Learn more about these and another fall 2019 events and exhibitions at www.events.towson.edu.
