March 5 reception from 5:30-7pm. Message: Stories in Bronze by Donald J. Stastny, architect. Stastny says, “My architecture explores space and symbology, translating these factors into built form—and, if successful, tells stories about the values and traditions of the people for which I build. My works in bronze continue that exploration of form—forms derived from imagining how a story might emerge from the land through natural erosion processes or how a story might be told through an abstraction of identifiable figures combined with application of symbol. As in meaningful architecture, the power of a piece of sculpture lies in its ability to engage and interact—enabling the viewer to seek deeper meaning than what might be the first impression of a piece. The interaction of abstraction and realism is purposeful and challenges one to discover the stories held within—and discover the spiritual that is embedded in the form.”
