The Bone Installation Comes Down for the Season

Two days up and thirty minutes down…
The Bone Series installation was up at Sierra Azul Nursery in Watsonville since June for the Sculpture IS: 2016 exhibit, I hope you got a chance to see it, because today it came down for the season. This piece is modular and can be modified for any space, so if you have a place in your home, garden or commercial space for an installation like this, please contact me to discuss the options.

And, mark your calendars for next Spring because Sculpture IS: will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary with two exhibits showcasing sculpture! Plans are in the works for something really exciting!

Where can I find your Art?

This is a question I get all the time when I meet new people who want to see my work in person rather than just in the website Shop. I have all my art exhibits listed in the Events page of my site, but I thought I’d put out a post with all the current and near future shows coming up. Hope that if you are local to these events you can get out there, support local businesses and BUY ART! Enjoy…

Such an amazing line up of artists in this exhibit, I’m so proud to be showing my work alongside them. The show is up until October, make sure that you get out there to see it!

Repost Reminder: Sculpture IS: 2015 Opens Today!

Jenni Ward ceramic sculpture | the dirt | Sculpture IS: 2015I’m so excited to once again be participating in the Sculpture IS exhibit at Sierra Azul Gardens this summer. It’s one of my favorite local exhibits and it incorporates art and nature beautifully. This year I’ll be doing a site specific installation of my Bone Series. If you were able to make it to the Spring Studio Sale a few weeks ago, you saw a mock up if the installation in the studio, I’m hoping that the garden and sky space will only enhance what is already so exciting about this installation. Hope to see you at the reception!

Sculpture IS: 2015 Installation

Jenni Ward ceramic sculpture | the dirt | Sculpture IS: 2015 installation

This weekend, Nate and I were over at Sierra Azul Gardens in Watsonville to install the new Bone Series piece, we worked on it for over 4 hours and it still needs a little tweaking but it’s looking really good! These are the same pieces (plus a few more) that I used for my Bone Series Installation at the MAH for Everybody’s Ocean exhibit, but the pieces are being displayed in a completely new configuration. Conceptually, I feel that the pieces in this installation represent the connections we have with each other, the synapses happening within our own bodies and how we are stitched together from past to present, from inside and out.

Be sure to come by for the opening of Sculpture Is: 2015 on June 11th from 5:00 – 7:00pm. The exhibit will be up from June 1 – Oct 31, 2015.
