CARMELA KNEPLER: SEA TO MOUNTAIN — SCULPTURE AND WORKS ON PAPER opening January 22, 2011.
with an artist reception on SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2011, from 3:00 until 6:00 pm; continues until March 12.
This exhibiton features a selection of Knepler’s work in which she had drawn and painted, welded, built and sculpted forms based upon themes of nature and the perfect intelligence of creation. The beauty of natural objects she has found and memories she has collected from both the mountains and the sea inform her work. Conch shells from the beach, memories of beauty stored over the years from hiking and climbing the ancient mountain, “Old Rag”, in Virginia help her to shape her forms. Knepler sculpts with concrete, metal, plaster, wood, using material old and new, relating the strong with the fragile, light with heavy, looking at the old and the new, the temporary and sustaining.
Carmela Knelper, (American, born London, England, 1960), was raised and educated in England and Israel. She served in the army in Israel. Knepler graduated from St. Albans School of Art and Design, Hertfordshire, England, UK, in 1982 and received a BA, 1st with honors, from Bath Academy of Art, England, in 1985. For over twenty-five years she has lived in Fairfax, Virginia, USA, building a body of work in her studio while raising her young family. A member of the Washington Sculptors Group since 1989, her work had been exhibited widely, most recently at the Historical Society of Washington, Washington, DC, in 2010. Knepler has received awards from the Henry Moore Foundation, David Bomberg Association and the Anglo Jewish Association.
