Patrick Dougherty

March 7, 2017 - March 24, 2017

Sculptor Patrick Dougherty was awarded the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art in 2011. He works with twigs and branches to create site-specific installations. Woven together and held in place by tension, Dougherty's sculptures have a whimsical quality, inspired by his childhood adventures exploring the woods of North Carolina. At the Gibbes, Dougherty will create a site-specific sculpture in the Museum's glass atrium, creating a visual connection between the interior gallery space and the lush outdoor garden.

The documentary Bending Sticks, will be screened at the Gibbes on Wednesday, March 1 at 6pm. The film is free with Museum admission. Learn more.
