About the Artist and this Exhibition:
Cary Weigand was born and raised in Hawaii, where she earned her BFA and MFA from the University of Hawaii in 2003. Cary’s work has been published in Ceramics Technical, and she was awarded one of Ceramics Monthly’s Emerging Artists for 2011.
The Art Spirit Gallery is honored to be the exclusive gallery showing Cary’s work. Cary first began showing at the gallery in 2011. Since then, her sculptures have gained a solid following. Each piece is ripe with symbolism, depicting spiritual traditions and mythologies from all over the world. Cary uses both human and animal forms, each with expression that evokes both curiosity and strong emotion in the viewer. Her sculptures reflect her personal philosophy that mythical animals and humans share the responsibility for safekeeping the earth.
The Art Spirit Gallery also celebrates the eighth year it has teamed with Sorensen Magnet School of the Arts and Humanities for May’s ArtWalk. Sorensen’s performance teams will keep the evening lively with juggling, singing, African drumming, theater, visual arts, marimbas, and more. Please join us as we celebrate the arts in our community.
