Walking into the Sculpture studios during Charles Hewlings‘ Marathon this past January was like walking into a laboratory. Materials as diverse as recyclables, glass, burlap, wood and metal were strewn in piles, and student sculptures, in various forms of completion, seemed to grow from the walls, floors, and ceilings of the studios. Despite their diversity in approach and materials, all of the sculptures felt unified in their commitment to experimentation and organic growth. Interactive or imposing, ethereal or solid, room size or miniature, the sculptures lived and moved throughout the Lobby Studio, Chester French, and the clay room in a way that forced one to tilt their head and peer around corners, under staircases, and across the skylights for the full experience. It was hard to not feel caught up in the festive air; and while these pieces were meant to be enjoyed physically, the photos above display some of their qualities.
