"BEST BODY OF WORK"
T Barny was awarded the "Best Body of Work" at the all sculpture showcase exhibit at the Plaza Arts Center in Healdsburg, California. The show, "Chiselers", will continue through March 23, 2009. The gallery is located at 130 Plaza Street. Hours: 11am-5pm daily.
The showcase features 9 sculptors including myself. I decided to represent a variety of stone choices, as well as, my different styles and designs. I brought in 13 different pieces. They include the fossil series, my mobius design and curvilinear pieces. The pieces are carved from French Sandstone, Mexican Fluorite, Turkish Marble, Utah Calcite, Monterey Marble and Bardiglio Marble. Also, in the collection is a wood piece created from Walnut and a 5 bronzes. The piece pictured here is titled KOAN. By definition, Koan means 'Paradoxical Anecdote'. It measures 12"H x 11"W x 6"L. The price is $3900. I chose to complement Koan with a glass base. It works with the color and sets it apart from the typical black bases.
