The Andre Christine Gallery & Sculpture Garden in Mooresville hosted its sixth opening and reception on April 14. The exhibit ‘Contemporary Skylines & Architecture’ seamlessly blends a rich array of sculpture, canvas, photography, glass, wood and jewelry.

The exhibit features "The World of Bending" sculptures by Rick Lazes. These beautifully lyrical wood sculptures rise from the floor and swirl across the gallery walls.

Lazes, whose studio is at the NC Music Factory in Charlotte has been creating sculptures for more than 3 decades. His medium of choice is wood (walnut, cherry, maple, ash and poplar), which is steamed, and bent into organic forms.

Chris Montgomery played the guitar on the front porch as guests arrived to meet the artists, including painters Joyce Wynes, Lori Neill, and Angela Van Every Johnston and glass fusion artists Tonya Crowe Chinuntdet and Nancy Rosato.

Other artists were Alla Ostovsky, Ted Easler, Donna Van Vleet, Cortney Frasier, Marcia Pinyan, and Sandie Bell. Sculptor Dana Gingras had new works of Steel / Painted wall pieces.

The family owned gallery, a treasure to the growing Mooresville arts scene, has been opened since January 2011. Its mission is to connect the widespread citizens of the community to the beautiful environment of the sculpture and fine arts world.

‘Contemporary Skylines & Architecture’ will be on display until June 1. Turn north off of Highway 150 onto Ervin Road (across from the entrance to Morrison Plantation) to find the sculpture garden and gallery on the right.
