The ubiquitous exclamation point, once regarded as superfluous, is now almost required punctuation when communicating electronically. “!” exclaims itself a monolith to its own emphatic grandeur. “
2. Celestial by Eino
2. Celestial by EinoCelestial // Eino // Brazilian blue quartzite, stainless steel // 2010“Members of the human race are akin to stars in the sky; each an individual, but all residing in the same “space” that we call the Universe. ‘Celestial’ invites the viewer to step back and see the big picture and to realize that we are all part of a greater whole. A focal point of the sculpture is a “starburst” representing the genesis of humanity; it is positioned near the center of the piece to represent a central point from which everything emanates.”

3. Reconstruite by Danette LandyReconstruite // Danette Landry // bronze on steel plate // 2017“My sculptures work are a constant reconstruction and materialization of one’s self. This force is represented in my bronze totems. Each totem has a gender, and individually they carry a variety of wounds analogous to those found in humanity. The feminine totems depict resilience and strength through a complex stacking of very small geometric plates. The masculine totems portray a physical and emotional weight bearing a similarity to geological elements with smooth erodedlines and rock-like features.”

5. Take Heart by Patricia VaderTake Heart // Patricia Vader // powder-coated steel, aluminum // 2017“The heart of this wind driven kinetic sculpture by Patricia Vader spins in both directions in an irregular and unpredictable way that is fun to watch. It epitomizes the unpredictability of life and how we can optimize it with our own positive and generous impulses. A heart is a universal symbol of courage and connectedness that confers a sense of place and well-being, especially at times of natural disasters like floods, earthquakes and fires, all of which pertain to Napa.”
6. Release by Eileen Fitz-Faulkner

I imagine if we would only listen to these insightful beings, we would know the delicate secrets to life. Release is the third in a series to explore this concept. In this work, the bird has imparted knowledge and the woman has taken the message to heart. Here, she sets the bird free to continue the journey to spread universal truths.“

8. Transcendent by Brian HutseboutTranscendent // Brian Hutsebout // steel, cedar, copper // 2016“‘Transcendent’ draws inspiration from the boundless energy that flows through nature, a dance-like vitality. The tall height of this piece evokes an impressive presence, slightly larger than human-scale. It relates to the body in its form, yet emphasizes Nature’s grandeur. In contrast, the industrial materials bound tightly together reflect the rapidity of mass-production and overconsumption of natural resources. My intention to leave certain components vulnerable to the elements highlights the effects of the environment in which it is displayed, creating an opportunity in which nature can respond to industry.”
