LIVING PRESENCE: SCULPTURE BY WILLIAM KOOIENGA & ALAN LEQUIRE
October 15th – December 22 2022
Artists’ Reception – Friday, November 18th 4-7pm
LeQuire Gallery’s Fall 2022 feature exhibition, including over 40 works, small to large-scale, is inspired by 3 new installations at the Four Seasons Residence Nashville.
Alan LeQuire’s Dream Forest, anchored at the Four Seasons Residence main entry, is an ode to the disappearing forest ecosystem. “These sculptures are like old growth trees in that they welcome and support us with a living presence“.
William Kooienga’s Origin, located in the Residence lobby, is created from Osage Orange, one of North America’s most durable hardwoods, having sustained cultures as far back as the Osage Indians of the Great Plains. Kooienga’s Five Spirals on the 14th Floor Terrace recognize Tennessee’s abundance of forest and some of its most popular hardwoods including walnut, sassafras, and cedar.
We applaud the Four Seasons for their conscious effort to partner with local artists and instill such exciting, and reverent, organic themes within the lovely Nashville Residence. The LeQuire / Kooienga installations are striking and inspiring, and we’re honored to offer an expanded look at the incredible work of these two master sculptors with the Living Presence exhibition.
