The Modesto Junior College Art Gallery presents “Geometries in Cold Steel” on display Tuesday through March 4. The exhibit features the sculptures of Lawrence Thomas Duchscher, MJC professor of art.
A free, public reception with the artist will be held at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 25, at the Gallery, and refreshments will be served.
“For the past four decades my sculptures have dealt with the exploration of geometric forms,” states Duchscher. “During this time I have concerned myself with the element of line in defining these forms and its ability to create both actual and illusionary phenomenon. The use of linear parallels leads to an investigation of space causing the three-dimensional forms to appear two-dimensionally from certain points of view. I am concerned with these forms in their three-dimensional existence as compared to their two-dimensional aspects and illusionistic qualities. For me, my sculptures are visual experiences in themselves and are subject to change with both the environment and the observer.”
The MJC Art Gallery is located on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto, and is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday. The exhibition is sponsored by the MJC Visual Arts Club and admission is free.
