🖼️ About the Evening:
Join us with artist Sayaka Ganz at Historic City Hall for the "Reclaimed Creations" opening reception, gallery talk, and artist Q & A on Friday, March 15 from 5:30 p.m. till 7:30 p.m. Guests can expect light refreshments. This event is free and open to the public.

🦅 About the Art:
The sculptures of Sayaka Ganz will be on display at Historic City Hall Arts & Cultural Center from Saturday, March 2 through Saturday, May 4, 2024. Ganz utilizes reclaimed plastic objects such as discarded utensils, like brush strokes which appear visibly unified at a distance though separated at close proximity. She describes her style as “3D impressionism.” Sculptures in "Reclaimed Creations" include recent installations of animals in motion which are rich in color and energy and create an illusion of form.

🎨 About the Artist:
Sayaka Ganz was born in Yokohama, Japan and grew up living in Japan, Brazil, and Hong Kong. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University, Bloomington and a Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Bowling Green State University in Ohio. She has lectured widely and she taught design and drawing courses at Indiana University – Purdue University Fort Wayne between 2002 and 2012. The amazing sculptures of Sayaka Ganz have been displayed at the Hermann Geiger Foundation in Cecina, Italy, and the Isle Gallery, Isle of Man.

About her work, the Ganz says, “My work is about perceiving harmony, even in situations that appear chaotic from the inside. When observing my sculptures up close, one might see gaps, holes and items being held on only by small points; step away, however, and the sculptures reveal the harmony created when the objects are aligned to the same general (but not identical) direction. Similarly, it is important to gain perspective by stepping back from current problems and look at the larger picture. Then one can perceive the beauty and patterns that exist.”
