ICE BREAK in the gallery 1 - 4 pm
BREAKING UP IS HARD TO DO
in Earth Walk's pond (Pamela Burton's garden) 12 - 1 PM
a new leaf gallery / sculpturesite is delighted to introduce to California Canadian artist Gordon Halloran, well known to world audiences as the creator of Paintings Below Zero, monumental public art installations in pigments interacting with the crystal structure of ice.
In 2008, Museum of Modern Ice (popularly nicknamed 'The Popsicle' by Chicagoans) attracted over 176,000 visitors to Millennium Park, Chicago in the month of February. In Turin, Italy, Halloran filled an entire church with a magical landscape of paintings in ice for the 2006 Olympic Winter Games.
Finally, the sculptures are coated with clear resin, giving the surfaces a watery effect and emphasizing the saturation of the limpid colors. The wall hung and free-standing works are suitable for indoor or outdoor settings in most climates.
