Tyler J. Hoare: Things with Wings & Fins, A year of Daily Quarantine Sculptures
June 12 @ 12:00 pm - July 18 @ 6:00 pmFree
The Compound Gallery is pleased to announce a solo show Things with Wings and Fins featuring works by esteemed Emeryville mudflat artist Tyler James Hoare. This show features a collection of sculptures made by Hoare over the course of the past year during quarantine. Hoare produced hundreds of birds, cranes, ducks, puffins and other winged fowl alongside an assortment of fish and an amalgamation of curious creatures. The collection of works on display will also include a wall installation of over 50 of Hoare’s ‘“masks” (imaginary portraits) which were also made during the pandemic. ‘A sculpture a day’ has been Hoare’s mantra throughout the pandemic as he used his art as a way to stay creative and active during this extreme time. Take home a piece of East Bay art history as a souvenir of one man’s personal expression through the pandemic.
Dates: June 12th-July 18th, 2021
