Gerard Kirk Harris has exhibited in Cloverdale in the past. This year Harris is exhibiting in the Sculpture Trail in both Cloverdale and Geyserville. The sculpture in Cloverdale, “Arch-i-texture”, is site specific sculpture for the Cloverdale Performing Arts Center at 209 N. Cloverdale Boulevard. Harris redesigned “Arch-i-texture” to welcome people to the Performing Arts Center. The design allows passage through an arch with translucent nylon fabric with drawings that reflect the performing arts. This sculpture is now on long-term loan by the artist to the Performing Arts Center.
The second sculpture “Colorlyth” located at the end of Geyserville Avenue, Geyserville is 9 feet high by 40 inches wide and 12 inches deep, and was created using a metal frame and nylon fabric. The initial form for “Colorlyth” came from Harris’s collaboration with a musician/sculptor friend. The completed sculpture is a colorful design of overlapping translucent fabric for the webbing within the frame; forming a composition which is rich with color and form.
