Curated by Coral Lambert & Cynthia Handel
The exhibition came about during a conversation between sculptors, Coral Lambert and Cynthia Handel when they were checking in on each other in early April 2020. They were discussing how the pandemic was affecting studio work and what kind of support their artists community needed. Many sculptors were turning to drawing because fabrication shops had closed. The resulting I5olation Portfolio project includes various methods of drawing from mixed media and collage, to traditional pencil and watercolor. The exhibition represents an international collection of women sculptors from the USA and Europe, all are over 50 years of age and approach sculpture in diverse materials and practices from public and process-based art to installation and performance.
