Come to the Encinitas Library for "The Shape of Things: James Hubbell Sculpture" exhibition on display June 10-July 21, 2013. The exhibit is in collaboration with the Oceanside Museum of Art
The reception will be held on June 30th from 2:00-4:00pm.
James Hubbell’s wide-ranging practice - public sculpture, architecture, stained-glass, sculpture, mosaic, painting, drawing and poetry – has sought to express his deep reverence for nature, a long-standing and primary source of inspiration for his art.
His passion and innovation, and his consistently visually arresting work that evokes and engages with the mystery and beauty of our natural environment, has made Hubbell a leading artist of his generation and a San Diego treasure.
The exhibit was developed by the Oceanside Museum of Art, the first museum exhibition devoted to Hubbell’s extensive sculptural oeuvre. This new collaboration with the City of Encinitas brings the exhibit to the Encinitas Library and features Hubbell’s small scale sculptures from the past 50 years of his career. Works on view will range in scale from abstract bronze sculptures to more intimate pieces crafted from wood, showing Hubbell’s extraordinary craftsmanship and intuitive approach to his materials.
"The Shape of Things" explores his mastery of a diverse range of media including bronze, wood, glass and stone, highlighting the evolution of Hubbell’s nature-inspired sculptural style and the reoccurring threads that connect the work over the past five decades.
The title of the exhibition, "In Search of Shadows," reflects Hubbell’s interest in bringing awareness to the forms that are created from three-dimensional sculpture and the importance of understanding the visual language of sculpture: edge, line, form, mass, color, texture.
