Swedish Sculpture Exhibition Opens at Mosely Gallery

  • Monday, March 17, 2008

    PRINCESS ANNE, MD- "Angels and Devils," a sculpture exhibit featuring the work of Swedish sculptors Johan Thunell and BörjeBerglund is on display now through April 4, at theMosely Gallery at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

    According to Dr. Anke Van Wagenberg, gallery director, art history lecturer, Thunell's sculptures are mainly raku-fired ceramics.  They are an offspring of his interest in human physiognomy of humorous "Devils," representing the darker aspects of the human condition.

    Berglund's "Angels," winged figures in stoneware in clear resin, capture a feeling of them hovering freely in space. As Berglund states, "they might not look like ordinary angels (whatever those look like), but are nevertheless floating around in the freedom of the heavenly realm like angels should!"

    An opening reception takes place on March 6, from 4 to 6 p.m. All events in the Mosely Gallery are free and open to the public.   The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For more information, visit www.umes.edu/mosely or call 410-651-7770.
