Title: Beautiful Bones
Artist: Shawn HibmaCronan
Dates: Nov 3rd - Nov 29th
Time: Check Venue listings.

Shawn HibmaCronan utilizes a range of traditional and contemporary methods of making to create engaging sculptures with structural geometry, familiar forms, and subtle nods to an intended function outside of gallery walls- including a “street legal sculpture” created from a 1963 Ford Falcon Deluxe Clubwagon.

During his residency, HibmaCronan has continued his practice by creating a series of sculptures with intricate bone structures to honor the character and texture found from the metamorphosis of this vehicle.
