Boston / Brookline, MA (PRWEB) May 30, 2012
Kolbo Fine Judaica Gallery is delighted to be hosting an exclusive two-month retrospective exhibition of sculpture by widely acclaimed Make Way for Ducklings artist Nancy Schön beginning on Father’s Day, June 17th. The opening will provide an opportunity to meet the creator of this famous celebrated work that has become synonymous with the City of Boston and is a must see destination for residents and visitors of Boston alike.
The exhibition will also feature maquettes (small scaled-down versions of her public art sculptures) including the celebrated Make Way for Ducklings from the Robert McCloskey story, and the Tortoise and the Hare that resides near the finish line of the famed Boston Marathon in historic Copley Square. There will also be a few life size sculptures for kids (and adults) to sit on.
Among the works that will be on display at Kolbo in Brookline are a group of limited edition sculptures that Nancy created while she was living in Israel. These unique pieces radiantly and poignantly capture both religious and secular life as Nancy observed and experienced it in Jerusalem.
Nancy Schön’s work is widely regarded for her warm, evocative representations of human and animal figures and she has received many commissions both public and private in the United States and abroad. Included in the exhibition will be one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces, some of which have not been seen in an exhibition for many years.
The exhibition of Nancy Schön’s sculptures will be hosted at Kolbo Fine Judaica Gallery at 437 Harvard Street in Brookline from June 17 through August 17, 2012. The Opening Reception will be on June 17th from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. and will be a unique opportunity to meet the artist and to view a retrospective of many of her works of art.
Kolbo has been displaying the fine work, Judaica and otherwise, of many artists since it opened in 1978 and continues to offer the finest quality handwork and graphic art in the region.
