If you've live or have ever spent time in the Pacific Northwest, you have most likely seen the playful sculpture of Georgia Gerber. Her artistic emphasis has been the creation of accessible public artwork that encourages viewer interaction. You'll find her work in homes and gardens, on the streets of Portland, and greeting visitors at Pike Place Market with her most famous work, Rachel the Pig.
For her June Spotlight, Georgia will be debuting new work in the gallery. Come celebrate the season, and be among the very first folk to see her new pieces.
Georgia lives here on Whidbey Island, Washington, where she operates her own studio and foundry with the assistance of two women artisans and her husband.
"I like my sculpture to invite an interaction with its audience. This is often meant to be a direct physical interaction, but always I strive to engage the viewer's imagination. I tend to present an incomplete visual narrative; a story is suggested, a feeling evoked, and the viewers find themselves providing details." — Georgia Gerber
