Everson Museum Presents the Work of Gerald DiGiusto
Gerald DiGiusto, Contro Series.
SYRACUSE, NY.- The Everson Museum of Art presents a selection of sculptures from Gerald DiGiusto Contro Series, in collaboration with the Skaneateles Festival. Three of DiGiusto’s Con-Ten Steel sculptures, Contro 1, Contro 5 and Contro 6, will be on view on the Everson podium August 4 – November 17, 2010. Three additional sculptures will be on view for concert goers at the Skaneateles Festival’s Saturday evening concerts on August 14, 21 and 28, 2010.

“DiGiusto’s powerful sculptures beautifully compliment the architecture of the Everson’s I.M. Pei building,” said Steven Kern, Everson Museum of Art executive director. “We are delighted to be able to make connections with the residents of Syracuse and Skaneateles through this joint presentation.”

The 1973 Contro Series exhibits a scale-less grace of pure geometric shapes created our of Cor-Ten steel. They are achieved through a dynamic balance of simple surfaces composing bodies which are so abstract that they speak to the intellect directly without external interference.

“The Skaneateles Festival is pleased to play host to an exhibit of sculpture from Gerald DiGiusto’s Contro series,” said Susan Mark, Skaneateles Festival executive director. “Brook Farm, the beautiful lakeside home used for our Saturday evening concerts, is the perfect backdrop to showcase these amazing pieces. Our thanks to the DiGuisto Estate and Ronald Wells for making this collaboration possible.”

Gerald DiGiusto was born June 30, 1929 in New York City , the son of immigrant Italian and Jewish parents. Throughout his career, he worked in the studio of the Japanese sculptor Iwao Norimatsu and assisted the Neoclassical sculptor, Ernest Morenon. In 1957 he graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston . In 1958 he received a BFA from Yale University where he studied under Josef Albers. DiGiusto taught at the University of Oregon , Syracuse University and SUNY Cortland.

Wells Laing is the exclusive representative of the sculpture estate of Gerald DiGiusto. The Everson Museum of Art/Skaneateles Festival joint exhibition was made possible in part by facilitation of the R Wells Gallery, Binghamton NY .
