–Studios on the Park is featuring an exhibition comprised fully of sculpture from March 30 —May 3, 2021. CaliforniaAesthetic3D is a celebration of the California spirit through sculpture created with elements of wood, stone, metal and glass.

In this exhibition, curated by wood sculptor Ken Wilbanks and glass artist Stephanie Wilbanks, California’s artists share their vision of the fascinating CA Aesthetic. “Aesthetic dwells in study of the mind and emotions as they relate to the sense of artistic beauty.” said Ken Wilbanks. The works are created by the artist to provoke a response, yet the viewer judges each piece through their own unique perceptions of meaning, sensation, and artistry.”

The sculptors include Carl Berney, Peter Charles, Mecki Heussen, George Jercich, Larry Le Brane, Ron Roundy, and Ken Wilbanks. All are from the Central Coast, and each has an impressive art background of their own, bringing a variety of sculpture to one creative space.

CaliforniaAesthetic3D can be seen Sunday through Thursday from 12 – 4 p.m. and on Friday & Saturday from 12 – 9 p.m. For more information on CaliforniaAesthetic3D, Studios on the Park or its education programs, go to: studiosonthepark.org/events/californiaaesthetic3d/
