Best known for his public art pieces, Tampa-born sculptor Bradley Arthur presents a sampling of his four decades of object making.This exhibition includes a diverse range of mediums including cast bronze, traditional metal, found object assemblage and text based sculpture. Often controversial, his 3-D language integrates and re-frames the common object into a transformed entity which stimulates deeper investigation.

“Bradley Arthur has built an impressive career using his conscience to guide his art. His evocative sculptures are often word-based, simple conceptually but provocative. This cast bronze work, for example, spells out "enough," crafted from small figures of soldiers who tumble and jumble as if airborne in a mine field. The exhibition presents past art as well as new sculptures and assemblages, all relevant and thoughtful.”
