An Evening with sculptor Gerardo Hacer

Arts

Fri, Jul 6, 2012 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm

Gilman Contemporary is proud to welcome sculptor Gerardo Hacer to Ketchum for a one-night event, Friday July 6th , 5-8 pm.

Hacer, an American sculpture, is fast becoming known in Los Angeles and the west coast as a major force in the emerging art pool for his multi-ton hand folded steel, origami designs.

Formerly a graffiti artist immersed in the culture and creativity of street art in L.A. He educated himself as a welder studying welding at LA Trade Tech College.  Combining his childhood joy of creating origami designs, a chance encounter with an towering 60 foot Alexander Calder sculpture inspired Hacer to create these sculptures of origami animals. No cranes will be on display but Hacer's animal kingdom includes; a Pegasus, a dog named Foxy, a rabbit that clearly has something on its mind and a bear that is not your typical beast.

Please join us at Gilman Contemporary on July 6th from 5 to 8pm to meet this extraordinary artist and see the installation.
