A new research guide for Art & Art History was published by Beth Bloom
Exhibition: 6/7 – 7/22/2010 | Opening Reception: 6/10, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The Walsh Gallery at Seton Hall University is hosting a solo exhibition highlighting wall sculpture by artist Tracy Heneberger. The show is a survey of three-dimensional art created by the artist over the past twelve years in various media including; bronze, wood, aluminum, stone and organic materials such as fish. Heneberger often uses iterations of materials that organize smaller parts into a well-ordered whole of line, pattern, color and shape. By combining natural elements in rhythmic ways, the end result is at once rich in detail, and yet elegantly simple.
