Mason Fine Art and Events in Atlanta, Georgia to feature Sculptor, Molly Sawyer. 

Molly Sawyer’s new body of wall-hung works entitled ’Adrift’ will open on Friday, April 8, 2016: 6 – 9 PM at Mason Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia.  This exciting series is made primarily of driftwood collected from beaches in Maine and from the Hudson River in upstate New York.

These found objects are collected and then reinterpreted through the assemblage process.  The nature of this current body of work brings about the questions of sustainability of artists’ materials and practice, the blending of organic with man-made, and the ever-altered results of climate change.

“The work is about balance: of natural forces, of materials, balance of emotions and of opposites.  I feel it is my responsibility as an artist to act as an interpreter of natural elements and as one who documents materials and impressions which we may one-day be without.”

Molly Sawyer is a mid-career sculptor and native to Atlanta.  She has maintained studios from Georgia to North Carolina, to New York, and back to North Carolina.  Her studio is currently located in Asheville, North Carolina.  Her sculptures can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout the east coast including the New York Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Mohegan Sun Casino, and the Ritz-Carlton Boston collections.

Sawyer has exhibited with Mason Fine Art for over a decade.  Her work continues to remain fresh and ever-changing while her insightful evolution as an artist unfolds.  Please join her at the opening reception of ‘Adrift’ on Friday, April 8, 2016 from 6 – 9 PM when Sawyer will be in attendance to share more about the work.
