Archway Gallery presents "What Shapes Us," featuring new sculptures by Tracey Meyer.

Meyer’s third solo exhibition, and her first at Archway Gallery, is a sculptural exploration of the complexity of life. Meyer employs rag paper, wood, and ceramic to create sculptures which each represent an imagined individual’s existence. Momentous or calamitous events are represented by the physical shaping of the whole sculptural form. Each cut and bend in the artwork represents a decision in that person’s story, a response to an experience, or a choice that had to be made. The cut apertures in the sculpture portray a physical manifestation of the life’s reaction to its experiences.

The resulting artwork portrays the non-linear nature of an individual’s journey, and how it is made up of many experiences - large and small, easy and difficult. Whether the life appears relatively tranquil or rather tumultuous, the work exposes the internal dialogue that shapes it. This exhibition asks the viewer to consider more deeply the hidden challenges that others experience, and to re-examine the complexity of existence in general.

The virtual opening & artist talk will take place on ArchwayGallery.com or Facebook Live. Following the opening reception, the exhibition will remain on display through December 3. The gallery is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am-6 pm, and Sundays from 1-5 pm.
