Ms. Morisset will give a curator talk Thursday, March 21 from 6:30pm - 8pm at Honfleur Gallery. At Honfleur Gallery, Sculpture Now 2013 is a broad exhibit that explores various contemporary ideas ranging from tribal symbols to futuristic concepts. Selected by Philadelphia based curator Florcy Morisset, the30 exhibiting sculptures are created out of classic mediums such as wood, metals, glass, stone, corrugated cardboard to rare found objects and textiles.

The exhibition is comprised of works by the following artists: Jan Acton, Chris Bathgate, Tom Bendtsen, Anne Bouie, Eric Celarier, Frederic Crist, Joel D’Orazio, Alonzo Davis, Joshua DeMonte, Ellisa Farrow‐Savos, Todd Fry, Janet Goldner, Len Harris, Artemis Herber, Liz Lescault, Ruth Lozner, Beau McCall, Darcy Meeker, Joe Mooney, Lincoln Mudd, Craig Schaffer, Madeline Smith, Marcos Smyth, Paul Steinkoenig, Dave Wertz, Peter Wood, Joyce Zipperer. As a collective, Sculpture Now 2013 is transformative and speaks to the importance of understanding and incorporating historical and idealistic concepts.
