Van Duyne; and Collective Charm: Works by The Arts Center of the Capital Region’s Nuts, Bolts & Beyond Artist/Entrepreneurs.

Something Familiar: Roger Bisbing + James A. Van Duyne

The objects and arrangements depict spatial situations across the collective landscape. Common, recurrent, and variously familiar subjects and situations examined through mutual experiences of permanence, fragmentation, meditation and fleeting cultural environments. “The two artists’ showcase their skills in carpentry in a contemplative journey though architectural visualizations of mixed mediums,” said Belinda Colon, Curator at the Arts Center. “The artists’ functioning space directs the viewer through Van Duyne’s barriers and patterned sculptures to Bisbing’s architectural models of familiar (or not) structural spaces.”
