Momentum Gallery welcomes contemporary figurative sculptor Lisa Clague on Friday, June 4th at 5:30 pm. In conjunction with her current solo exhibition at the gallery, Lisa will be on hand to discuss her artistic practice and the story behind the works included in the collection. In the interest of public safety, this event is open to a limited number of guests. Please RSVP by phone or email.
Lisa Clague’s fanciful and creative figurative ceramics convey emotion and intensity. Guardian angels, monkey-headed dieties, and crowned queens are some of the icons prominently featured in the collection made during the pandemic this past year. Clague is a highly-accomplished ceramicist and a two-time award recipient of the Virginia Groot Foundation Grant. She has taught workshops at prestigious universities and arts organizations all over the country. Her dream-inspired sculptures with classically modeled visages can be found in many private collections and in the permanent collections of several museums nationally. Momentum Gallery is pleased to pair Lisa Clague's well-known sculptures with a number of the artist's drawings and paintings on resin-coated wood panels. Clague's intricate drawings depict imagery and figures in a stylized and whimsical manner true to the artist's aesthetic.
