THE ERIK GRONBORG EXPERIENCE
AUGUST 6, 2016 - MARCH 12, 2017 (Opening reception is Friday, August 5)
The first major retrospective devoted to Erik Gronborg, this exhibition will present a full picture of this Danish-born American artist’s creative life over fifty-five years. Guest-curated by Dave Hampton, this project brings together examples of Gronborg’s sculpture in cast bronze, carved wood, and other media, as well as studio furniture and a comprehensive survey of his ceramics. Images of the remarkable house and garden that Erik and his wife Irina have carefully modified over the years in Solana Beach will add environmental context for the objects in the exhibition. Gronborg’s writing, another aspect of his rich creative life, will also be featured.
