[McAllen] Artist Danville Chadbourne to Present Recent Works at IMAS

by admin on November 9, 2014

McAllen, TX-The International Museum of Art and Science (IMAS) is pleased to present a major exhibition of artworks by San Antonio sculptor Danville Chadbourne from December 18, 2014 to April 12, 2015. Members of the museum and visitors are invited to join IMAS on Thursday, December 18, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for an opening reception in which the artist will unveil his new works.

Chadbourne’s exhibition will feature more than 40 works, most of them created within the past year, including both large and small-scale wood and ceramic sculptures, a series of suspended works, wall-oriented works in ink and acrylic on wood panel, and several large-scale outdoor sculptures in ceramic and stone. The exhibition will be accompanied by a 32 page full-color catalogue, featuring an interview/conversation between Chadbourne and long-time friend, film critic, and collector, John Defore.

Primarily a sculptor in clay and wood, Chadbourne works in a range of materials and in both two- and three-dimensional formats. Known for his craftsmanship and use of primal materials, Chadbourne’s work is often likened to a body of cultural artifacts. The visual and ritual impact of these beautiful objects is made more complex by their provocative, poetic and often paradoxical titles. They are, in essence, monuments to irrational ideas and human impulses.
