Works by sculptor Heather Ramsdale evoke feelings about the passage of mind and body through space, emotions and time in her exhibit, “Slide Out of View,” held in the Lycoming College Art Gallery from July 28 through Sept. 9. A reception will be held Sept. 8, from 5 to 9 p.m. with a talk by the artist at 5:30 p.m. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public.
Minimal in presentation, Ramsdale’s sculptures bring into question a new environment suggestive of transit and time, that beckon viewers to locate themselves within both. At moments, her works arouse curiosity and suggest personas, both humorous and lonely, as the audience explores their form and how they relate to one another.
Ramsdale was nominated for a Terra Foundation for American Art Award and an Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center. Subsequently, she was the recipient of two Pollock-Krasner Foundation fellowships for residencies in upstate New York. Recent shows include a group exhibition at Savery Gallery in Philadelphia and a solo exhibition at The Gallery at Delaware County Community College. She recently completed a residency at Joya: arte + ecología, an arts-led field research center, in Andalucía, Spain.
She earned a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. She received an undergraduate degree in studio art from SUNY Cortland and studied at Goldsmiths College in London. She teaches sculpture full-time at Kutztown University.
