Cris Worley Fine Arts is proud to present Harry Geffert: Look Up There, an exhibition celebrating the legacy of our beloved friend and artist Harry Geffert (1934 – 2017). This commemorative exhibition, planned before Geffert’s passing, will feature his final works in bronze alongside pieces from his estate, spanning the last thirty years of his personal artistic career. Harry Geffert: Look Up There, will open on September 8, with an opening reception from 5–8 p.m. and will be on view through October 6.
Harry’s work in bronze captured the mystical spirit inherent in the alchemical history of metallurgy. Led by an obsession and reverence for the natural world, Harry expressed his intimate views of human beings’ relationship with the environment through an unmatched ability to replicate organic forms ranging from the human figure, root systems, flowers, animals, and even the surface of flowing water. Harry’s technical mastery allowed him to innovate with paper-casting and painting techniques that held viewers in awe for their delicately crafted details.
