End Date: 9/19/2017End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description:


The List Gallery is pleased to host Fritz Dietel: 25 Years, an installation of key sculptures that demonstrate the artist's evolving vision.

The exhibition will take place September 7 through October 22, 2017. Honored as the Donald J. Gordon Visiting Artist and Lecturer for the 2017-2018 academic year, Dietel will lecture about his work on Tuesday, September 19, 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Lang Performing Arts Center Cinema.

The List Gallery reception will follow 5:30-7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served. These free and public events and an accompanying exhibition catalog have been made possible by the Donald J. Gordon Visiting Artist's Fund.

 Fritz Dietel has exhibited his work in the Philadelphia area for more than three decades and earned acclaim for his work, including a 2007 Pew Fellowship in the Arts. Although his List Gallery exhibition represents a small sampling of his creative output, it conveys the variety of his aesthetic and his readiness to embrace new mediums and forms. His mixed media sculptures express his fascination with organic forms such as seeds, shells, vines and carapaces, as well as handcrafted tools, canoes, and containers. Embracing unexpected contrasts, he harmonizes varied materials, including steam-bent wood, handmade papers that he variously molds and layers, copper wire, pigmented epoxy, and lighting elements. Whether they are hung from the ceiling, mounted on the wall, or standing free, Dietel's sculptures spark the imagination, reawaken our senses and call attention to nature's dynamism.
