Catch Vlock’s striking functional fine art’
An American artist and architect is to host an exhibition of “functional fine art” at Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art this month.
Sandra Vlock has created Bermudian-themed sketches and a metal fire pit sculpture while spending the summer on the island.
Ms Vlock’s work has caught the attention of numerous high-profile magazines and, in 2014, The Wall Street Journal featured her art.
Tom Butterfield, the founder of Masterworks, said: “There were a number of reasons we chose Sandra as our visiting artist but among them were originality, material, concept and design.
“And when you have four elements like that, it seems like an obvious introduction to the gallery and museum attendees and for those who like to look at new artwork.”
Helen A. Cooper, the curator emeritus of American Paintings and Sculpture at Yale University Art Gallery, said: “As an art historian and curator, I’ve admired Sandra’s work as an architect and artist.
“I have been especially interested in her sense of the importance of art in the life of an individual or community; finding in places and nature, the authentic human connection.”
The Art of Engagement exhibition opens on Friday and runs until October 29 in the Rick Faries Gallery at Masterworks.
