Green Rice Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by J. Aaron Alderman, Steven Sinnett, Rich Nossel & Marilyn Overton

J. Aaron Alderman

Green Rice Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present the exhibit, Casted, Welded, Hammered & Forged: The Queen City Metalsmiths, featuring works by J. Aaron Alderman, Steven Sinnett, Rich Nossel and Marilyn Overton, on view from June 5 - 28, 2009.

From the Stone Age through the Bronze Age to the Iron Age, metalwork has flourished in art, industry and trade. By the 1700's the village blacksmith ensured the economic survival of early America, making the implements and equipment used in farming, business, and even in the common household. 
After industrialization, when ironwork could be provided by factories, blacksmiths reinvented themselves, putting their age-old hand forging talents to more creative endeavors. The studio craft movement began in the middle of the past century, allowing the floodgates of creativity to be thrown wide open and unbridled abandon to flow freely. Standing on the shoulders of the metal giants who have preceded them, we welcome J. Aaron Alderman, Steven Sinnett, Rich Nossel and Marilyn Overton as they celebrate their ageless legacy of metalsmithing.
