Event Details

Bonnie Maurer has the soul of an artist. In this exhibit, she gives voice to the joy in welding sculptural arts objects using steel and other recycled materials. She claims the family junkyard, Wrecks Inc., as one of her influences. “Junk,” she says, “may be my true calling, calling out of chaos to order, to play, to humor, calling to memory, calling to the imagination.” She also channels Alexander Calder’s spirit of making things for the “fun” of it. “Inherent in welding found objects are the elements of discovery and surprise,” she says. One of Maurer’s professors asked: Does she have a whimsical seriousness or a serious whimsy? Perhaps both. You decide!

Meet Bonnie, enjoy her artwork and have a bite to eat at the reception.

Registration is not required but is appreciated.
