Center Gallery at Lake Street Studios in Glen Arbor begins its summer of weekly exhibitions July 1 with metal sculpture by Rod Bearup. The exhibition opens with a public reception at 6 p.m.
Bearup looks to the natural world for his subject matter, drawing inspiration from the flora and fauna that are indigenous to his northern Benzie County home. He works primarily in copper, stainless steel and glass enamel, translating his subjects – fish, insects, reptiles, forest wildflowers — through hand-forming, welding and brazing techniques.
“The first 20 years of my working life were spent in industry working with metals as a craftsman, designer and engineer,” he said. “For the second 20 years of work, I applied these well-honed skills to develop the original processes which are used to create my unique works.”
This show runs through July 7. Center Gallery is located at 6023 S. Lake St. For more information call 231/334-3179.
