Opening: Friday, November 7th 7-11 pm
MASS is excited to announce sculptors Julie Moon and Rick Mansfield in a new exhibition Green Zone, November 7 – December 13, 2014. Moon is a Canadian ceramic artist working out of Toronto and Mansfield is a sculptor primarily working with bronze living and working in Austin, TX. Both artists meld inanimate objects, expressions of the body and culturally recognizable images into narrative driven, totem-like sculptures.
Julie Moon is a Canadian ceramics artist, jewellery designer and installation artist. Moon graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2005 and in 2010 she successfully completed her Masters in Fine Art at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Prior to attending OCAD, she studied fashion technology and spent over a decade working in the garment industry. Moon’s intricate hand-work is undeniably precious and feminine, always focused on beauty and the decorative arts. Her work is a testament to her love of making and commitment to her craft.
Richard P. Mansfield is a practicing sculptor, living and working in Austin, Texas. He was born and raised in the Northwest receiving his B.A. in Sculpture from Central Washington University and his M.F.A. in Sculpture from California State University, Fullerton. He has shown in Washington, Arizona, California, Texas and most recently in Chicago at the Nicole Villeneuve Gallery. While being an active artist he also works at the University of Texas at Austin as a Lecture and Sculpture supervisor. Richard is also an active member of MASS Gallery, a non-profit, artist run gallery in Austin, Texas.
