ADDISON STREET WINDOW GALLERY EXHIBITS "TURN AND LOOK"
Two East Bay Sculptors Display Their Works
Berkeley, California (Friday, October 07, 2005) - Amana Brembry Johnson and Lorraine Bonner, two East Bay sculptors, will showcase their work at the Addison Street Window Gallery exhibit entitled, "Turn and Look," October through November 25. This exhibition is open to the public, free, wheelchair accessible and can be viewed 24 hours a day.
Amana Brembry Johnson is best known for her beloved stone sculpture "Holding Tomorrow's Heart" in the Oakland Zoo's African Savannah. This exhibition offers a rare view at Amana's evolution towards creating interactive installations that incorporate figurative works in stone.
Lorraine Bonner's emotional and thought provoking "Perpetrator" series explores the connections between personal and global acts of betrayal and violence. These figurative works in stark black and white clay illustrate the inner workings of the process of betrayal, which Lorraine defines as "perpetration." Together these artists offer an unflinching look into the heart of suffering and the gift of hope that courageous witnessing brings.
