'Things We Carry' sculptures

March 13, 2017 - April 25, 2017

10:00 AM - 06:00 PM

Hyde Art Gallery, Bldg 25

Alex DeCosta,

The bronze sculptures of artist Joseph Castle will be on display at an exhibit, “Things We Carry,” opening Monday, March 13, and continuing through Tuesday, April 25, at the Hyde Art Gallery in Building 25 at Grossmont College.

Sponsored by Grossmont College’s World Arts and Cultures Committee, “Things We Carry” consists of 15 bronze wall reliefs, conceptualized and fabricated by Castle. With the largest pieces measuring 8 feet tall, the sculptures are static and extremely heavy. Still, they emit a sense of movement.

By incorporating and arranging animal remnants into the bronze casting process, the artist creates haunting scenes of floating biomorphic shapes, like mastodons emerging partially intact from the La Brea Tar Pits.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and by appointment on Fridays. The gallery is closed on Saturday, Sunday, and legal holidays. One-day parking permits for $2 can be purchased at any parking lot vending machine.
