Sheila Ganch pours her character as artist, wife, mother, teacher and inveterate world traveler into each of her unique pieces. After experimenting with different materials like bronze and thin lead forms treated with metal dyes and patinas, Ganch switched to playing with clay and found its responsiveness and malleable nature an inspiration for new work. “Veiled” exhibits just this — the organic nature of molding a sculpture out of clay, and the freedom within the medium to create a depth in texture that produces ancient-looking surfaces in an effort to define our timeless connection to the Earth.
