The Robotic View, Quilts and Drawings by Kathy Weaver

Philip Livingston's sculptures on display in Goshen College art exhibit;

Show opens Nov. 9 and runs through Jan. 7

GOSHEN, Ind. -- An exhibit of recent works by retired multi-media sculpture professor Philip Livingston will be on display in Goshen College's Hershberger Art Gallery Nov. 9 to Jan. 7, with an exhibit reception Nov. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the gallery, located in the GC Music Center.

For this exhibit, Livingston used fabric, rope, bamboo and aluminum to create pieces "that are more about atmosphere than form, that emphasize lightness over weight and that interact with light," Livingston said. All of the sculptures either hang on the wall or from the ceiling, and none touch the floor.

According to Livingston, the title of each piece is "Breath." He said, "They are of and about the present moment. I hope they will evoke in the viewer a sense of calm, an experience of peace."

Livingston, professor emeritus of art of the University of Tennessee, lives in Chicago, where his studio is also located. He received a bachelor's degree from Brown University and a master's degree in fine arts from the University of Wisconsin.

The Hershberger Art Gallery, located in the Goshen College Music Center, is open from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday. The building is accessible to people using wheelchairs and others with physical limitations.
