Join the Colgate Club of NYC for a tour at Sears Peyton Gallery!
Saturday, January 11, 2014 - 4:00 p.m.
The Colgate Club of NYC invites you to tour the Sears Peyton Gallery with Celia Gerard '95
Celia Gerard’s imagery is derived from a developing language of shapes that collide with traces of memory. Exploring the lines of form and structure, Gerard’s process uses the grid as a foundation for adding and subtracting layers of spatial relationships. From piece to piece, the grounds of each individual work oscillate between the lightest light and a mesmerizing darkness. This balance combines materiality with elements of a mysterious state of limitless potential. The multiplicity of Gerard’s mark making turns in on itself, creating a prismatic reflection that strikes a sense of quiet mindful awe. Gerard’s wide-ranging influences include Islamic architecture, graffiti, crystal formations, and the works of composer John Cage and artist Georges Braque.
Celia Gerard (b. 1973, Washington, D.C) received her BA with honors in art and art history from Colgate University, her EdM from Harvard University, and her MFA in sculpture from the New York Studio School of Drawing, Painting and Sculpture.
