Exhibition Dates: July 17 – September 17, 2014
Opening Reception: July 17th, 6-8:30pm
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to present two one-person exhibitions, by Atlanta sculptor David Landis and Savannah painter June Stratton, that consider how people and nature reflect each other in their behavior, their strength and fragility.
In Animal Dreams, each artist’s dreamscapes depict animals and birds in a reflective silver tone – whether cubist aluminum sculptures of floating and falling creatures or silver leaf paintings of birds and animals in mid air. Landis and Stratton’s poetic works incorporate the mirror like material of silver as an intentional nod to the aesthetic use of this treasured tone in classical art of centuries past.
June Stratton’s (b.1959, Hawaii) oil paintings and pastels have been successfully shown in Savannah and her home gallery of Boston, Lanoue Fine Art Gallery. Her work has been acquired by many collections including Bank of America, the U.S. Department of State, The Mayo Clinic and Texaco, Inc. Her pieces can be seen in major movie productions as well as national and international collections, including the acclaimed St. Regis Art collection, in their Atlanta location.
David Landis (b.1964, New York) is a sculptor whose work ranges from large-scale public commissions to smaller private works. Landis is currently producing pieces for the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital, Palo Alto, CA; the new Alpharetta Public Library and is creating one of Atlanta’s largest permanent landscape installations- the 33 Oaks Project. His commissions include the Atlanta Beltline, the gardens of the Pierre Baudis Congress Center, Toulouse, FR; the Albany Law Enforcement Center, Albany, GA; the U.S. Bancorp Center, Minneapolis, MN, as well as Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Novelis Corporation, Fulton County government center, Kennesaw State University, the Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta, Trees Atlanta and the Atlanta Botanical Garden.
