Carnegie Art Center: Some Mettle Required, David Hyduke & Andrew Hellmund
This Event Occurred in the Past.
Opening June 6 and running through June 22, 2019 in the Carnegie Art Center's Rotunda and Fireplace Galleries, Two Generations--Two Metals: Some Mettle Required with new work forging a joint exhibition from David Hyduke and Andrew Hellmund that has been enriched and constructively pushed by their new friendship, understanding, and respect for the other’s work.
“We are continually learning from each other and that forces us to explore and look at art from different perspectives, with new considerations in mind. In these bodies of work we both took on two metals: steel and bronze. Along the way we have continued to critique and push each other.”
David Hyduke works out of his foundry and studio in Kasota and his work may be seen throughout the state, at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, the Metropolitan Medical Center in Minneapolis as well as the Anoka County Courthouse and Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter.
Andrew Hellmund is an internationally exhibited sculptor currently completing a Virginia A. Groot Artist-in-Residence at Gustavus Adolphus College. Born in Massachusetts, he completed his MFA in Sculpture under British master, Peter Hide at the University of Alberta (Canada) where he specialized in large abstract metal sculpture. His work can be found in public and private collections from Massachusetts to British Columbia.
The public is invited to the opening reception Saturday June 8, 7-9 pm.
