The Walsh Gallery Presents “Tracy Heneberger – Animal Plant Mineral"

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.
