Forgotten Artifacts Closing Reception

July 22, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Core Contemporary is pleased to present Forgotten Artifacts, a group show celebrating the talents of popular cast metal sculptors in the Las Vegas Valley, features Ross Takahashi, Emily Budd, Chris Bauder, Eric Pawloski, and select student artists.

Cast metal art is often connected to antiquity and the documentation of past events, peoples, and forgotten histories. As civilizations fall, often the metal shapes they leave behind remain as evidence for understanding how they interpreted the world. “Forgotten Artifacts” investigates what this collection of contemporary sculptors wants to leave behind from the anthropocene, as they explore what cultural, societal, ecological, political, religious, and/or artistic views they want to leave behind to ultimately emerge as artifacts as the eons pass.

“What excites me most about this show,” shares gallery owner/curator, Nancy Good, “is that an exhibition devoted solely to the art of foundry and metal casting is a rare occurrence in Las Vegas. I’ve long been a fan of many of these artists and have always been left wanting more when I get to view a piece or two in other local art exhibitions. I’m also fascinated by the juxtaposition of the hard physical labor and dangerous materials in the creation of work that is often quite delicate and sensitive.”

The exhibition runs May 27 through July 22, with an opening reception on Friday, May 27 from 6-8 pm. There will also be a closing reception on July 22, 6-8 pm, with an artists’ talk still to be scheduled.
