Cris Worley Fine Arts presents Harry Geffert: "Look Up There" opening reception
Cris Worley Fine Arts will present Harry Geffert: “Look Up There,” an exhibition celebrating the legacy of artist, Harry Geffert (1934 – 2017). This commemorative exhibition, planned before Geffert’s passing, will feature his final works in bronze alongside pieces from his estate, spanning the last thirty years of his personal artistic career.
Geffert’s work in bronze captured the mystical spirit inherent in the alchemical history of metallurgy. Led by an obsession and reverence for the natural world, Harry expressed his intimate views of human beings’ relationship with the environment through an unmatched ability to replicate organic forms ranging from the human figure, root systems, flowers, animals, and even the surface of flowing water. Harry’s technical mastery allowed him to innovate with paper-casting and painting techniques that held viewers in awe for their delicately crafted details.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 6.
