One of the initiators of site-specific architectural sculpture, Athena Tacha premieres a new group of small scale works reflecting her abiding fascination with nature and space. Made variously of sand and stones, epoxy, grey slate, lead, aluminum, vellum and a host of other natural and synthetic materials, the 15 sculptures on view, none more than two feet high, invoke canyons, caves, a glacier and, frozen in mid-air, a waterfall, wave and volcano. Photoworks are also in the exhibition, including 14 compositions, each a grid of photos tracking a single detail from nature through timea stone strata, tide pool or snow crack, for instancein areas where the artist, an incessant global traveler, has visited. Two films (five and six minutes) revisit nature-based works made by Tacha in 1969. The artist, who has lived and taught in the Washington area since 1998, has received more than 40 public commissions internationally since the 1970s, among them an entire city block forming a park in downtown Philadelphia and two environmental installations at the Morgan Boulevard (blue line) and Grosvenor-Strathmore (red line) Washington Metrorail stations.
