The Grimshaw-Gudewicz Art Gallery reopens on September 4 with an exciting and provocative exhibition called Structures and Machines. With this exhibition the gallery is pleased to introduce the work of Shingo Furukawa and Gerald Weckesser. 

 Born and raised in Japan, Furukawa received a BFA from the University of Oregon and an MFA in jewelry and metals from UMASS Dartmouth. Currently he is the studio technician for UMASS Dartmouth’s College of Visual and Performing Arts.

 A metal smith, machinist, and sculptor Furukawa creates works that are at once complex and minimal. An examination of his work may expose elaborate structures, a feast for the mind, and once deciphered, reveal a simple or delicate activity.  They are delightful, toy-like, and satisfying to encounter.

Originally from Detroit, Gerald Weckesser holds both a BFA from Wayne State University. His MFA in metalsmithing is from UMASS Dartmouth, but he works in a variety of materials. The quote above is attributed to him, and it typifies his exploratory approach to making things.  He makes works that plant themselves somewhere between art and craft or functionality and fine art.
