"Displacement" by Rebecca Welz: A timely exhibition opens at the June Kelly Gallery
7 Houses.

NEW YORK, NY.- As sculptor Rebecca Welz was in the process of creating the “Displacement” series during the winter of 2020-2021, global crises continued to contribute to the displacement of thousands upon thousands of people. She wrote:

“My father was in the US Airforce and we moved a lot when I was growing up; 19 times in all. The houses changed but the objects inside stayed the same and were placed in different configurations. Observing the impact of pulling up roots and resettling so many times led me to consider, unlike my family, those who are forced to move.

The ‘Displacement’ series is a tribute to the millions of people who have been displaced from their homes due to political unrest, tyranny, genocide, economic hardship, famine and lack of resources in their native countries. Many people are forced to leave their homes as a last resort for survival without knowing if and when they will ever have the security of a home. The steel houses symbolize the sanctuary of four walls and the security of a roof overhead. They represent different lives, places and times in the quest for safety and a sense of belonging.”

The timely exhibition “Displacement” opened at the June Kelly Gallery in New York City on November 19, 2021 and runs through January 4. 2022.

Rebecca Welz’s sculptures have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in museums and galleries throughout the United States, including the Grace Borgenicht Gallery in New York City; the Oakland Museum in California; the Heckscher Museum in Huntington, New York; the Butters Gallery in Portland, Oregon; the SciArt Center in Easton, Pennsylvania; the Cherrystone Gallery in Wellfleet, Massachusetts; and Sculpturesite Gallery, San Francisco. In addition, her work is in private and corporate collections, including those of Goldman Sachs, Pfizer, Merck, Prudential Life Insurance Corporation, Sabre Corporation, and the William Kaufman Corporation.
