Sculptor and artist Charles Sherman at The Museum SFV - 8/13/22 - Noon - 2:00 pm Free admission - please RSVP - don't miss this special event

The Museum SFV and the Public Art Initiative (PAI) Artist Speaker Series are pleased to present...

Sculptor and Artist Charles Sherman

Museum members, donors, Friends of The Museum SFV, local artists, valley residents and visitors are in for a real treat as YOUR Museum of history, art and culture welcome Charles Sherman on August 13, 2022.

Los Angeles-based sculptor and jewelry designer Charles Sherman was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 1947. His work is informed by a lifelong study of ancient civilizations, world cultures and religions. The forms he creates are minimalist, conceptual and inspired by sacred geometry. His philosophy of life and art has always been the same: to promote the positive.

Since 2002 Sherman has investigated sculptural forms that express the concept of infinity, especially the three dimensional Möbius ring and more recently, variations of the Tetrahedron form. He hand builds his clay Infinity Ring sculptures using the most primitive sculpture tools and coil or slab construction. Some sculptures are transformed into cast bronze, stainless steel or welded stainless steel. 

Mosaic is a current exploration. Using glass, agates, crystals and ancient ammonite fossils he transforms the surface of geometric form with applied mosaic. In 2006 he began translating his sculptural forms into sterling silver sculpture to wear jewelry designs. In his most recent body of work, Miracle Towers, he creates forms based on the tetrahedron and variations of the pyramid in welded steel and glass mosaic.
