Red Bank High School announces the sculpture exhibition, Building the Future. Jennifer Rubin, Adam Garey, and Bryan Rasmussen are exhibiting their work as part of this unique opportunity that connects students with professional artists in Chattanooga. This project was made possible by the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga and the Red Bank High School Pride Committee.
The opening will be on Tuesday, at 10 a.m. at 640 Morrison Springs Road.
MakeWork grant recipient, Jennifer Rubin, focuses on the female figure and how women choose to allow themselves to be judged by external standards of body and appearance. She has installed a fabricated stainless steel work called, “The Truth in Barbie’s DNA.”
Adam Garey explains that from a young age, a strong work ethic was instilled in him. This feeling was not from chastisement or reward, but from a compelling example of knowing what should be done and doing it, whatever the cost. His twelve foot, “Signal,” is fabricated stainless steel. Students express that his work looks like long knots of metal and explain that they associate the image with being a strong and powerful person.
Bryan Rasmussen’s work called, “Feather,” is constructed of fabricated steel. Rasmussen explores the balance of materials and subject matter in composing this poetic work. The students look at this image and state that it is a reminder to be light when life can be heavy.
Thee students will meet the artists on Tuesday at the opening reception. For more information, please contact Michel Belknap at firstname.lastname@example.org.
