Iron Oar by Robert Chambers
exhibition dates: May 19th 2017 to July 8th 2017
Opening Friday, May 19th | 6-9pm
Robert Chambers is a Miami legend, with his corkscrew wild hair and his rapid fire barrage of ideas that meld art & molecular biology or physics, his persona is archetypal – even romantic. He has built upon the second part with storied and historic studio visits – more like happenings really – in his backyard jungle-studio-paradise in Coconut Grove. And with solo shows at the Sculpture Center in New York and the Laumeier Museum in St. Louis, MO, as well as a number of significant public art projects, the impression he makes holds ground. About a year ago, he took the helm at the Sculpture Department at FIU, where he overhauled their facilities with the help of an enthusiastic team, including a new foundry that can cast up to 700 lbs of bronze.
He will use the newly renovated sculpture lab to create his show for Emerson Dorsch, his first solo show in Miami in more than a decade.
