Spring/Summer Curator’s Walk

James Surls, Standing Vase with Five Flowers, 2005, bronze and stainless steel.

By Virginia Steel , Curator of Exhibitions and Jenn Korolenko, Education Assistant

On May 21st a select few participants had the pleasure of exploring some of GFS’ contemporary works with our Curator of Exhibitions, Virginia Steel.  Virginia has been with us at GFS for about two months now and it was interesting to explore the pieces that she felt were most compelling in the two session tour. Below is a list of the pieces that we discussed and viewed on our walks.  We hope do more tours like this one in the future!
