Zenith Gallery invites you to come experience an adventure in artistic creativity.  Artistic elements collide at the Presidential Building, at the 1111 Sculpture Space, which we have had the honor to curate for over a decade. A kaleidoscope of artist’s come together representing multitudes of artistic medium, creating a mini version of our flagship gallery on Iris Street.  From traditional West African wood carving, to mixed media collage painting, to fabricated steel, we have cultivated a true smorgasbord of artist’s excellence!


Zenith’s founder and owner, Margery Goldberg, leads the exhibition as an expert wood fabricator and carver by shining a light on this medium that is experiencing a new wave of extraordinary wood sculptors.  Continuing in her path are wood sculptors Aaron Laux, who’s wood sculpture retains the original bark while adds mosaic to the medium. Ibou N’Diaye with his 1000’s of years of traditional African Sculpture to draw from, he tells the story of the life of the Dogon’s of his motherland and Larry Ringgold, who relies on mother natures wrath to have her way with fallen tree branches and he puts them together to form animal and human forms that defy conventional wisdom of what is possible; each creating a new perspective on the traditional craft.  Metal sculptors, Richard Binder, Julie Girardini, William Ludwig, Carol Newmyer, and Paul Martin Wolff who show the vast difference in the way artists use metal by fabricating, casting, adding other material like glass rocks, they create human, abstract, spiritual, animal and traditional sculpture.  Mixed media artists Stephen Hansen, Gloria Kirk, Chris Malone, Gavin Sewell, and Todd Warner combine unusual materials and ideas in their art which ranges from humor to tribal creations and much in between. Each artist showcases their own experiences and backgrounds in their art, giving this colorful exhibit a unique and original feel. Our sampling of sculptures, textile, and mixed media art assures there is truly something for everyone.
