Art for Awhile Sculpture Program


Art for Awhile

Art for Awhile

is an exciting art on loan program created by the Broomfield Public Art Committee (PAC) and sponsored by the City and County of Broomfield. Participating artists are chosen by the PAC to display their art and offer it for sale for one year. The program affords the artist increased public exposure and the opportunity to sell their work.

Art is displayed in three locations: 1STBANK Center, North Metro Fire District Headquarters, and the Broomfield Library. Click here for a map.

Plenum Orb

Permanent Collection, 2016

"Plenum Orb is created from familiar stainless steel items re-assembled in a most unusual way. In the reflective sphere you can see mixing bowls, pitchers, tea pots, hub caps, pots and pans, water bottles, dog bowls and coffee urns. In total, the Orb contains over 150 pounds of recycled material that has been re-purposed into a completely new form.

Like the forces that hold electrons in orbit within an atom, the artist created the effect of a cosmic magnet pulling the objects together to form a perfect sphere." ~Donald Gialanella

Rift

Art for Awhile Program

"Rift" was inspired by the geologic process of plate tectonics. A rift is created along a fault line and in this particular sculpture a thrust fault is represented by one half being pushed upward over the other. The texture of the piece was inspired by a basalt bomb. Material is spun off as the bomb spins through the air after being ejected as liquid magma from an eruption leaving concentric rings as it cools. The polished surfaces are the core revealed as cross section. The materials I used to make this piece are bronze and stainless steel which are well know for their strength and durability. ~Ted Schaal

Art for Awhile Program

My sculptures begin with small drawings that are a map to ideas I want to explore. An image may come to mind that I have observed in everyday life. I soak up stuff, I often get inspiration from design and architecture. I have used templates for two dimensional work that has transposed to the sculpture. These approaches have become planes, shapes or sold forms with cutouts. Most works have a see-through quality. I have a deep interest in music and many viewers observe rhythm and cadence in my work. Orchestration of perforated or solid elements, sometimes above eye level, have become a primary intent for these vertical pieces.

Home Spun

Art for Awhile Program

Home Spun is a narrative that reflects a personal dilemma. The overall rocket shape is positive, pointing upward. The three houses represent important choices to be made. The fins, angled to resemble a stylized spinning tornado, suggest chaos.

Guardian

The Guardian is a graphic interpretation of the palace guard- bold and strong. The body of the figure is composed of mirrored plates that move in the wind casting random reflections at the viewer.

Butterfly


Mary Angers
Art for Awhile Program

My artwork is involved in coordinate space geometry - that is seeing things whether from nature or technology or theory in terms of how they relate and move in the X, Y, and Z axes of space. The artwork is also interested in exploring concepts of fractal geometry too. I try to do mainly hand crafted pieces even though they are made of metal aluminum plate.
