Asheville in the Third Dimension

June 5th- August 2nd

In a continued celebration of our third anniversary, Artetude is pleased to feature founding sculptors, Amy Medford and Leonid Siveriver together with iconic photographer Robert Asman for Asheville in the Third Dimension. 

Meet the artists while enjoying food & drink at the
First Friday Art Walk, July 3rd, 5-8pm

Spirit 14 by Leonid Siveriver, Bronze, 37" x 12" x 12"   $26,000
The figureheads of Siveriver's striking Spirit series appear, at first glance, as headdresses of the battle-ready. The longer one looks, however, the more one sees the familiarity of a face behind the armor. Next to the serrated edges and weatherworn surface of Siveriver's forms, Amy Medford's figures strain against their weighted pedestals, flesh wrestling to life from marble and clay, each caught in a moment of transformation.
The Conversation by Amy Medford, Terracota,  34"   $5,700
Complimenting these figures that stand and twist and rise up in space, we are proud to exhibit the stunning silver prints of Robert Asman. The artist's layering of special effects, expertly executed in the darkroom, create a dizzying sense of depth that transcends the two-dimensional nature of his medium. 
Half Gone by Robert Asman
Half Gone by Robert Asman, Silver Gelatin Print, 16"h x 20"w, $1,250
These featured artists have lived and worked in locales around the world, from Philadelphia and New Jersey to Israel and Italy, are now firmly planted on Asheville turf.  "The Third Dimension" refers to objects in space in which depth is added to height and width.  While sculptures are clearly three dimensional, Asman's mono prints create a 3-D feeling through the juxtaposition of subject matter and the layering of special effects done in the darkroom.
There is also a philosophic meaning to "third dimension" in which the reality of significance is intensified by added dimensions.  The works of Asman, Medford and Siveriver are all contemplative, and the deeper one looks, the more there is to be seen and felt.

Renowned sculptor Leonid Siveriver was on hand for our first Friday Art Walk back in April discussing the process of marble carving and bronze casting.  

Leonid welcomes the opportunity to share his knowledge with others interested in sculpture and ceramics. This summer he will be accepting new students in his Weaverville studio to showcase and teach his artistic language to others... Please contact the gallery for more information.

After receiving his B.F.A. from the Bezalel Academy in Jerusalem, the Ukrainian-born artist followed his love of sculpture to Italy where he mastered marble carving at the renowned Foundry Tomassi. Leonid has also studied extensively at the Johnson Atelier Technical Institute for Sculpture in New Jersey, where he met Amy Medford who became his wife and co-creator.
