An Outdoor Exhibition of Gummer Sculpture
Don Gummer will have an exhibition of his sculptures at the Five Points Arts Center in Torrington, Conn., with an opening reception on Saturday, May 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. The artist will lead a tour of the work, and will sign copies of the new eponymous book, “Don Gummer,” which features a selection of work from throughout his career.
A 10-minute video on Gummer’s work will play throughout the event in the Five Points Arts Center’s Wilson Sheehan Auditorium. Light refreshments will be provided.
The art center is on the former University of Connecticut campus at 855 University Drive in Torrington.
Gummer is an American sculptor, and a resident of Salisbury, Conn., known for his large abstract contemporary outdoor sculptures made of aluminum, stainless steel and stained glass that often appear to defy gravity. He has seven individual sculptures placed throughout the Five Points sculpture fields, each with its own story.
