Beverly Glascock likes working with a variety of materials, from cast marble to PVC pipe, both of which offer a number of creative options for her as a sculptor.
Her cast marble pieces seen here are a product of mixing urethane resin with marble dust and color. Depending on whether the color is added during or after the piece is cast, Glascock is able to obtain results that range from the feel and richness of stone to the fluid-like translucence of glass. A degree of unpredictability is always present, which depends on the whims of chance and randomness in the surface design.
“Although my intent is that these sculptures communicate a sense of quiet simplicity, a degree of unpredictability is always present, which depends on the whims of chance and randomness in casting process or the surface design,” Glascock explains.
Glascock took part in several regional and local group exhibitions in 2013, including the Pyro Gallery: New Members Show in Louisville that recently ended. She will be taking part in the Pyro Gallery 10th Anniversary Show, which opens at Pyro Gallery on Thursday, January 9, 2014. An opening reception will be held for the artists on Friday, January 10, 2014 from 5-9 p.m. Glascock’s work will also be part of an exhibition of work by Pyro Gallery members at the Jewish Community Center’s Patio Gallery. An artists’ reception for that show will be held on Sunday, January 12 from 2-4 p.m.
