  • Mariboe Gallery: Sculptor Patrick Strzelec

    Patrick Strzelec makes abstract sculpture with an incredibly diverse range of materials — aluminum, ceramic, epoxy, plaster, steel, and wood, to name a few. His mastery of these materials, as well as his unique ability to transform them into highly charismatic — albeit somewhat inscrutable — objects and forms has earned him numerous awards in sculpture, including the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship; the Ballingkillings Project in Ireland; the Rome Prize, Rome, Italy; a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts; and numerous New Jersey State Council for the Arts grants. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. Mr. Strzelec is the former Rudolph Arnheim Lecturer in Sculpture at Harvard University. Opening reception October 8 at 6:30 p.m.
