Bren Sibilsky, an Algoma sculptor, was recently juried into the Manhattan Arts International show, The Healing Power of ART. The show’s purpose is to promote the scientifically proven fact that art heals by transforming one’s physiological state and perception. The show runs Jan. 10 to March 10.
Sibilsky is a previous award winner in this prestigious New York show, having been honored with several Awards of Excellence and a Best of Show in 2007. Her sculpture “Esoteric Promises” won the first-place cash award in the Manhattan Arts International The Healing Power of ART 2016 juried exhibit.
“Bren’s emotive storytelling process through sculpture is shared through contrast, balance and harmony — complete with motion and stillness, smooth and tactile surfaces, open space and detail, and softness with strength,” said Renée Phillips, director of Manhattan Arts International.
Sibilsky’s current focus is on several commissions and planning for next year’s eighth annual lost wax bronze casting class at the Algoma Atelier of Sculpture and Art with professional instructors Ken and Mary Davidson. The class will be held in early June. Contact Sibilsky at 920.487.4200 or [email protected] for more details. Reservations are required; the class is limited to six students.
