"Zodiac" Exhibition with Donna Dodson '90
When: March 23rd, 2-4pm
Location: Fuller Craft Museum 455 Oak Street, Brockton
Cost: Museum Admission plus $10 at the door
Come for a special visit to the Fuller Craft Museum where acclaimed woodworker Donna Dodson ’90 will give an artist’s talk about her “Zodiac” exhibition. It features two sculptural series referencing all 24 animal characters associated with the Lunar or Chinese calendar and the Sun signs of Western astrology. Dodson will introduce us to her monumental creatures – including a lion, a bull, a ram, a penguin, a beaver, and a falcon – and review her career and approach to sculpture. A French major at Wellesley, Dodson has been a self-employed sculptor since 2004. She has been carving images out of wood for nearly 20 years. She has won artist residencies in Switzerland (2011) and in Peru (2015), and is represented by Boston Sculptors Gallery, where her newest exhibition “Match of the Matriarchs” was recently on display. Her sculptures explore feminine beauty and evoke humor and playfulness but also grace, power, and emotional strength. Her unique vision responds to the relation of animals to the human spirit that have existed since ancient times. Her figures are almost always female and range in size from intimate to larger than life. Dodson’s works have been exhibited internationally in sculpture parks and art museums. In 2016, she had her first solo museum show of “Mermaids” at the New Bedford Art Museum. In 2017, Dodson's solo show “Zodiac” began a national tour.
