SITE131 will highlight the opening of their Spring season with "Construction Site: 3 in 3D," a high-powered sculpture exhibition featuring three North Texas artists: Alicia Eggert, Jeffrey Lee, and Kasey Short. Curated by guest curator John Pomara, artist and long-term professor at The University of Texas at Dallas, the exhibition features artists, mostly new to the Texas community, who were invited to expand their presence in size, position, and materials.

Meeting the audience head-on at the large floating central wall is Eggert’s attention-getting text-phrasing: "All The Light You See Is From The Past." Eggert grabs and holds the audience’s imagination with a double-entendre: words that flip easily and come to mean two different aspects of the text’s intentions.

Short bombards the guests with sheer monumentality. Standing almost 20-feet high is a bulbous, futuristic, site-specific watchtower that plays with the viewer’s imagination. In an interdisciplinary approach between sculpture, architecture, and new media, Shorts’ artwork balances nature and future.

Lee appears in his first sculptural exposure to the public. Lee, as the talented and respected Dallas entrepreneur he has been, has left the world of highly designed gift items to become an inventive sculptor producing three-dimensional works that co-op high-end living experiences. Elegant clothes hangers are beautifully compressed into bulbous sculptural masses. Three sizable sculptures engage and mesmerize the unexpected audience.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 8.
