ATHENS, GA.- The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia hosts the exhibition “Driving Forces: Sculpture by Lin Emery” from October 1, 2016, to April 2, 2017. Four of Emery’s large kinetic sculptures can be seen outside in the Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden, and five smaller sculptures are inside in the Alonzo and Vallye Dudley Gallery.

Emery uses polished or brushed aluminum in her sculptures, which she designs to move gently in the wind. She takes inspiration from music, dance and natural forms, especially flowers and trees. Her work can be found throughout the city of New Orleans, her home for many years.

Annelies Mondi, the museum’s deputy director of the museum and curator of the exhibition, came upon Emery’s work while in New Orleans. Mondi said, “It was incredible. She really is a big part of the city, and that intrigued me.”

Playwright Edward Albee, who knew Emery from when they were children, compared her sculpture to that of Alexander Calder and George Rickey, both of whom also make use of movement in their work. Albee writes, however, that Emery’s “work can be confused with no one else’s; the world of kinetic art is healthy in her mind and hands.”

Born in New York City in 1928, Emery studied under Russian sculptor Ossip Zadkine before settling in New Orleans. Her sculptures are featured in the collections of the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.; the New Orleans Museum of Art; the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Norfolk, Virginia; the Delaware Museum of Art in Wilmington, Delaware; the Museum of Foreign Art in Sofia, Bulgaria; and the Flint Institute in Flint, Michigan. She received the Louisiana Governor’s Arts Award in 2001, an honorary doctorate from Loyola University of New Orleans in 2004 and the National Academy Museum of New York’s S. Simon Sculpture Award.

The Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden is devoted to the works of women sculptors. Previous exhibitions there have focused on sculpture by Alice Aycock, Patricia Leighton, Chakaia Booker and Steinunn Thorarinsdottir.
