Jerry Peart

Jerry Peart, nationally recognized Chicago sculptor, is generously opening his sculpture studio to the Society for Contemporary Art. During the reception in the studio, we shall be able to view an exhibition of maquettes for his large works and photographs of installed sculptures and works in process. In addition, Mr. Peart will share with us a newly completed video presentation on “Blue Geisha”, his monumental sculpture at Presidents Plaza near O’Hare. Most exciting is that he will show and discuss with us his newest series of sculptures as he explains how he shapes and manipulates metal in space. This is a wonderful opportunity to see how Jerry Peart creates and fabricates his brightly painted, multi-ton welded aluminum sculptures that are so remarkable for the rhythm and energy they convey.
