Opening Reception: Tuesday, March 4th, from 4:30-7:30pm
The URI Art Gallery is open Monday thru Friday from 12:30pm till 4pm
The discoveries in John Udvardy's art work may be that a flattened antique trunk takes on an entirely new kind of shape and dimensionality; that a stack of found bowls and pots reads more like a figurative goddess or a ritual column than it does a display of housewares or that a tiny wooden bird house might read, somewhat humorously, like the head of a spindly stick figure. The delight of discovery is at the heart of what Udvardy has given us over a lifetime of creative work. He imbues whatever he touches with the sense that discovery is like wonder, an all too rare feeling happily offered to his audience. Udvardy's sculpture is filled with wonder - wonder as it means to ponder and consider, wonder as surprise and delight, and wonder as inspiration and awe - wonderful in every way.
