Shared Vision / Separate Vision
The sculptures of Gary Weisman and Treacy Ziegler
Treacy Ziegler and Gary Weisman are artists and a married couple living in Newfield New York for the past 22 years. This exhibition brings together their sculptures. With the shared vision and hope that sculpture can be the aesthetic manifestation of compassion and care, Ziegler creates sculptures of animal imagery, while Weisman uses the human form. Weisman creates his sculpture in bronze. Ziegler creates her sculptures of paper; cast from thousands of letters she receives from prisoners through the Prisoner Express project of the Center For Transformative Action, affiliated with Cornell University. It is her hope that the sculptures reflect the range of emotion evidenced in the letters; hope, regret, sadness, loneliness, and love.
Ziegler and Weisman are internationally known artists with galleries representing them in Canada and the United States.
The 2020 CAP ArtSpace is sponsored by the Tompkins Trust Company.
