Sculptures In Motion: Exploring Kinetic Art

October 10, 2017

October – November 2017

 

VALA Art Center 
Friday-Sunday
12pm- 6pm 
7525 166th Ave NE, Redmond, WA (in Redmond Town Center)

This exhibition explores elements of motion by featuring dynamic kinetic art sculptures that demonstrate movement through one or a combination of technologies including mechanical design, human interaction, wind or solar power.

Featured artwork utilizes various elements of motion singularly or combined. Kinetic art transcends boundaries as an art form, integrating many creative disciplines such as sculpture, engineering, science, physics, and fabrication. In addition, various methods of motion are often combined, resulting in dynamic compositions that encourage viewers’ curiosity and engagement. This cross-platform approach to the creation of kinetic art encourages innovation and problem solving that can apply to many other fields including math, science, environmental design and alternative energy.

Local and regional artists were selected by a juried panel.

Sculptures in Motion: Exploring Kinetic Art features works-of-art created by:

Matthew Dockrey
Nolan Dost
Steven Jendro
Naveen Khan
Ashwini Sedekar

 

Generously sponsored by City of Redmond’s 2017 Arts Season Grant.
