Edinboro’s Sculpture Club hosted the first Bates Gallery art exhibit of the 2019-2020 school year. The exhibit, located in Loveland Hall, displayed a diverse lineup of sculptures in a multitude of materials, running from Sunday, Aug. 25-30.

Artists utilized materials such as metals, plastic, ceramic, wood, Styrofoam, paper and ink to bring their visions to life. Rachel Maly, of the Sculpture Club, used plastics that she found along with metals and driftwood to create “Albatross, Phoenix of Plastic,” a large, colorful sculpture of an albatross, standing on a piece of driftwood with its wings spread wide.

A message from the Sculpture Club on the wall of the gallery states “[w]e hope to instill a sense of belonging and recognition within our audience through our organization yet maintain our individual artistic messages through the works themselves.”

It also says “each artist here has their own personal story to share through their works and as such, creates a diverse show. Our goal is to show our individuality while still maintaining true to the accepting nature of the club and having a cohesive display.”

Stop by Bates Gallery this semester to see what else the art students have in store. Bates Gallery is “generally open,” according to Edinboro.edu, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
