From October 14 until November 12, 2011, the Yates County Arts Center will host its new exhibition “Natural Abstractions” presenting the work of Christine Barney, Connie Ehindero and Marc Freedman as well as the work of numerous local exhibiting artists.
Christine Barney: Born and raised near Corning, New York, her life has been anchored by glass for more than 30 years. Her first ten years were dedicated to learning technique as a glassblower. A two and a half year apprenticeship in Italy with Livio Seguso from 1984-1987 grounded her in the fundamentals of hot glassmaking. This led to a twenty year commitment to solid off hand sculpture, combining color and form at the furnace with cold worked surfaces that often radically altered the initial form. Seven years ago, looking to expand the scale of her work, she began to create sculptures by using the lost wax method of casting. This technique gives her great freedom and versatility in sculptural form and concept.
