San Diego Visual Arts Network creates homage to Calder by over 100 San Diego artists

July 16, 2009 – 1:07 am

Here’s the beginning of the introduction to the “Little and Large” exhibition this summer in galleries throughout San Diego county by San Diego Visual Arts Network founder Patricia Frischer:

“The San Diego Visual Arts Network in a joint collaboration of 41 venues from Fallbrook to Coronado has challenged almost 100 local artists, both sculptors and jewelers, to work in both mediums in homage to Alexander Calder. When I heard the announcement about Calder Jewelry, the light bulb went on almost immediately as I thought about how this artist had created his stunning sculptures but also made over 1800 pieces of jewelry. Why not ask local sculptors to make a piece of jewelry? Then naturally, we must give that same chance to local jewelers by asking them to create a sculpture. I had no idea this seemingly simple concept would be so embraced by the art community.”
