SANTA ROSA, CA.- The Museum of Sonoma County (MSC) is currently conducting the exhibition A Question of Balance: Selected Works from Pacific Rim Sculptors (PRS) from January 27 - May 26, 2024 in the Museum’s contemporary art gallery. Artworks for the exhibition were selected by jurors Jeff Nathanson, MSC Executive Director and Art Curator, and Kate Eilertsen, Executive Director and Chief Curator of Di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art.

A call for entries invited artists who are members of Pacific Rim Sculptors to submit artworks addressing the balance-related theme. The invitation included this common definition of ‘balance’: a state of equilibrium or equipoise; equal distribution of weight or amount, or something used to produce equilibrium. Artists were also provided with additional parameters for the exhibition: balance can refer to gravity, mathematics, accounting, opposing ideas or components, balance of power, etc. Additional questions were posed: what does balance mean to you personally or in a larger context? What are the varied and multiple meanings and interpretations of “balance”?

Artists used their own interpretations in materials, techniques, subject matter, or a combination of concepts to address the theme of balance. The resulting exhibition features 46 sculptors representing a diverse range of approaches, techniques, and materials. Included are sculptural works in metal, wood, stone, mixed media, and installation in sizes ranging from nine inches to over 12 feet in height.

Artists in A Question of Balance are: Don Ajello, Richard Alpert, Susan Amode, Jerry Barrish, Barry Beach, Barbara Berk, Jan Blythe, Nancy Brown, Jay Capella, Cheryl Coon, Sena Clara Creston, Catherine Daley, Lynn Dau, Rene Dayan Whitehead, Eileen Fitz-Faulkner, Rebecca Fox, Sheila Ghidini, Annette Goodfriend, Jane Grimm, Briona Hendren, Stan Huncilman, Rachel Karklin, Peter Keresztury, Jeff Key, Kathleen King, Terry Kreiter, Magels Landet, Oleg Lobykin, Jann Nunn, Moto Ohtake, Ucki Ood, Jeff Owen, Renee Owen, John Pashilk, Priyanka Rana, Ruth Santee, Rose Sellery, Adele Seltzer, Vicki Jo Sewell, Charles Splady, Richard Starks, Kline Swonger, Leitha Thrall, Laura Van Duren, Mary White, and Alexander Yoshikawa

Pacific Rim Sculptors

Pacific Rim Sculptors (PRS), a chapter of the International Sculpture Center, is based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Although PRS has member sculptors beyond the Bay Area, this exhibition features primarily regional sculptors, with a particular focus on the artists of the North Bay. Innovation in techniques and materials helps distinguish the practice of many artists in the Bay Area, as well as interest in the environment and topical issues.
