Current and Upcoming Exhibits

The Essential Figure: Crucial Elements of the Sculpted Human-
A Juried Sculpture Exhibit 

June 4–August 7
North Gallery, Lakewood Cultural Center

Lakewood Cultural Center presents its 13th Annual Sculpture Exhibit, The Essential Figure. This year’s exhibit focuses on the human figure and what is crucial to a sculpture. Is it a gesture, the emotion, the detail? Perhaps it’s the expression or the undefinable spirit. Guest juror sculptor Harold Linke encourages artists to celebrate the human figure.

Essential Figure

Special Juror's Exhibition

June 4-August 7
James J. Richey Gallery, Lakewood Civic Center South 

Concurrent with The Essential Figure, Harold Linke sculpts movement, sometimes figurative, sometimes abstract. Twenty years ago he began creating classical, expressive figurative bronzes. Seven years ago he broke that mold by moving to flowing distilled white sculpture. He discarded the detail, texture, volume and the color--leaving only plane (and plain) surfaces that he curved and stretched into figurative dance gestures.


Decoding the History of News in Lakewood 

Through August 15
Radius Gallery, Lakewood Heritage Center

Today, people often communicate via cellphones and computers. News is accessed from phones, tablets and car radios. Return to the beginning of news in Lakewood, a time of switchboards and typewriters, party line phones and floor model radios. Try out some old and new technology while learning about local newspapers, radio and television stations.
