Artist Talk and Reception Tonight – From the Crucible: An Exhibition of Bronze Sculpture


How It’s New York: From the Crucible is on display at Irish Arts Center, a home away from home for visual artists looking to receive New York exposure in the Center’s gallery.

How It’s Irish: Sculpture artists Colm Brennan and Leo Higgins have worked together for over 20 years in their Foundry in Dublin, Ireland.

Sculpture artists Colm Brennan and Leo Higgins will be at Irish Arts Center tonight for the Artist talk and reception accompanying their fall exhibition in the Irish Arts Center Gallery titled “From the Crucible: An Exhibition of Bronze Sculpture.”

Personal and celebratory, From the Crucible features 24 new bronze sculptures from masters Colm Brennan and Leo Higgins. Side by side, continuities and differences begin to emerge between these two artists: Brennan’s sculptures take a figurative approach, directly linking to his childhood in County Mayo, whereas Higgins’ explore abstract themes evoking nature and a sense of place. 

The exhibition coincides with the 25th Anniversary of Crucible Arts Services and Technology (CAST Ltd.) Bronze Foundry, founded by Brennan and Higgins in Dublin in 1986. The output of that “crucible,” or vessel, in which bronze is melted, has since spread from their Foundry to many parts of the world. The exhibition is on display from September 12 – December 18.

This program is supported, in part, by Imagine Ireland, Culture Ireland’s year of Irish arts in America in 2011.
