Over 1000 slightly curved ¼” stainless steel rods are randomly welded into place to create an exclamation point.

The ubiquitous exclamation point, once regarded as superfluous, is now almost required punctuation when communicating electronically. Here, “!” exclaims itself as a monolith to its own emphatic grandeur.

Luther Burbank Center for the Arts- Sculpture Garden
50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa, California
Free and open to the public through September 2020

Harmonies: Kati Casida, Catherine Daley and Jann Nunn featuring four large-scale sculptures from each artist, is the first exhibition to be held in the public garden since the deadly October 2017 Wine County fires destroyed much of the region.

Experienced as a combined exhibit, the sculptures create curtains of light and colorful dancing shapes as well as emotional space for reflection and immersion. There is a sense of the three artists interacting and “playing together” through their individual pieces, which feel like ribbons of light and color punctuating the garden space. As both a tribute to the loss of the fires and a symbol of resilience after tragedy, the new exhibition encourages visitors to reshape their own personal landscapes and think differently about the surrounding world.
