Riding With the Wind

Dates: November 1-30, 2016
Sculpture by Bertice McPherson

This November, Bertice McPherson will be displaying a series of sculptures in the Danielle Juzan Gallery. Bertice’s exhibition, titled “Then and Now…Riding With the Wind,” is comprised of clay and glass work she has created over the last 25 years.  The majority of the clay work explores the color and textural affects given by fire, smoke and salt fumes as the pieces are fired in wood shavings overnight. Her glass sculptures are created from sheet glass placed over a fiber mold and heated until the glass slumps over the form.  According to Bertice, “As a Mobile native, I spent many days at our beautiful beaches. My glass pieces always remind me of the way towels and fabrics are blown by the wind against torsos at the beach. The wind blows both hard times and good. I have faced many storms in life, but always find courage and strength to persevere. I want my work to show this.” Bertice’s exhibit will be on display at MAC during the month of November. Meet the artist on ArtWalk night, November 11th, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. The gallery will be open from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM on weekdays.
