The New Hope Area's Only Sculpture Tour

In it's fourth year as the New Hope area's only sculpture tour, Sweet Edge Sculpture Tour 2013 takes place Saturday and Sunday, September 28 and 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. Admission is free. Studios are five to fifteen minutes apart, located on some of the most scenic river drives and country roads in Bucks County,

In an endeavor to heighten public awareness of the history of three-dimensional art in Bucks County, and to familiarize and connect the community with the sculptors who live and work here today, five of the area's finest sculptors have joined together to open their studios and sculpture gardens to the public. The artists work in a variety of mediums: stone, steel, bronze, stoneware, and salvaged materials. Each sculptor will talk about their work, and share how they shape materials of their choice into final sculptural form.

Annual participants are Constance Bassett and David Cann of Moorland Studios, Raymond Mathis of Tutto Metal Design, John McDevitt of McDevitt Sculpture, and Steven Snyder of Cedar Maze Sculpture Garden and Studio.

In their barn gallery and sculpture garden, Constance Bassett and David Cann will exhibit sculptures made individually, and in collaboration with each other. Their differing perspectives share common ground in their combined interest in form, presentation, and the search for complimentary materials.

Constance Bassett's most recent body of work is an exploration of materials, and the use of facial expression and gesture, to evoke a contemporary and alternatively an iconic feeling in portraiture. Bassett explains, "I have experimented with the idea of capturing a sense of group expression, and the recognition of individuals within the group, if separated out. 'The Senators' has the presence of a crowd. Their individual expressions are overshadowed by the many surrounding them. One tends to interpret the mood of the whole, and not the individual in a large grouping. When presented as individual sculptures, they become familiar, and singular characteristics become more evident."

David Cann says of his latest creations, "This group of work is a nonrepresentational exploration of a series of 'Sketches' in metal. Like drawing with a bold marker in three-dimensional space, I interpret how to go from a flat, one-dimensional plane to three dimensions. My goal is to turn the random shapes into something that has an aesthetic presence and a life force of its own.

Raymond Mathis creates one-of-a-kind sculptural and utilitarian art by combining his technical skills and his passion for transforming raw material into a multitude of shapes, colors and textures. "My focus is to share with the viewer my take on the human experience through the visual aspects unique to iron. This year I will be presenting a new series of smaller scale pieces that also include clocks and jewelry, and are forged in aluminum and bronze." Mathis will be hosting visiting artists RoseLouise Heim and Ed Wright and will be demonstrating and sharing his techniques throughout the day.

John McDevitt's work revolves around the constancy of change and the challenge of self-transformation. "If I had one word to describe my latest work, it would be – opening. I used to think I had to close up the form to make it complete. I was not ready to expose the inside even though I could see something beautiful within. I am letting go of that rigidity and enjoying the possibilities that openness brings." McDevitt's latest series of work is entitled, "Holding Smoke."

Steven Snyder states, "I am inspired by the natural world around me, and the shape, irregularity and texture of a stone shows me the object within waiting to be revealed." Recent works involve the detail of polish on select segments of a piece, often baring the surprise of unexpected color or fossil-like detail hidden beneath the stone's raw exterior. Snyder has also been constructing fountains akin to a long turning, tumbling, spilling watercourse.

Artwork will be available for purchase at all of the studios. To get a map or more information, please visit SweetEdgeSculpture.com or call 267-337-1818.
