The Center for Contemporary Arts is pleased to announce the exhibition of Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand, on view from July 28 - December 31, 2017.
There will be a CCA Member and VIP preview on Thursday, July 27, 5-7pm, followed by a public opening reception on Friday, July 28, 6-8pm in the CCA Tank Garage Galleries.
Tom Joyce, internationally renowned sculptor and master of the art and science of forging iron, unveils his latest creations at the Center for Contemporary Arts on July 28. Tom Joyce: Everything at Hand continues Joyce’s explorations of iron as a profoundly symbolic material whose regenerative matter, aesthetic malleability, and cultural meaning resonate locally and globally at the deepest levels of history and contemporary life. Stretching from CCA’s Tank Garage to its new outdoor sculpture garden, the exhibition features new works by Joyce influenced by his many years of working with industrially forged remnants and byproducts of large scale manufacturing. In addition to forged and cast iron sculpture, the show highlights iron-inspired photography, video, charred drawings and mixed media installations, including experimental bodies of work in materials newly utilized by Joyce.
