Ernesto Montenegro
Bronze Sculpture

The recipient of such prestigious awards as the Peter Abate Award and the Religious Sculpture Award of Monte Carlo's Gran Prix d'Art Contemporan, Montenegro is a diverse and talented artist. His work spans a myriad of styles from abstract to realistic; from intricate reliefs to monumental bronzes. Ernesto Montenegro's sculpture can be found in many public and private collections throughout the world.

Sculpture that remains alive should have a dialogue between the spectator and the piece itself.

If they are drawn to it by a question, I think that's really important. It's like poetry. You read something of Emily Dickinson and you scratch your head. At 20, it means one thing. At 30, another, at 40, another, and at 60, it continues to live. — Ernesto Montenegro (regarding his work)

An exhibit featuring new bronze and stainless steel sculptures
May 3 - July 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, May 9th from 6 to 8pm in conjunction with Northampton's Arts Night Out

We are "meaning machines", we see shapes in clouds, man in the moon, gods in the stars. By putting together boxes in random shapes, I found unexpected figures doing unexpected things; anti-allegorically they guided themselves into seeking a meaning... boxes in search of a figure or actors in search of a play. Meaning is a form of hope, a healthy delusion, the price we pay for our self-consciousness. Meaning must outstrip the facts... "Colleges of Unreason".
