Locally, a new sculpture exhibit went on display this week at the Schwenkfelder Library and Heritage Center; Sculptures by Klaus Ihlenfeld; also from his collection: African, American, Indian, South Pacific and Pre-Columbian Art Works.
This summer our visitors will have a very special exhibit awaiting them – the bronze sculptures of Klaus Ihlenfeld combined with selections from his amazing collection of African, American Indian, South Pacific and Pre-Columbian works of art. His decades-long collection of art from all corners of the globe is a perfect complement to his organic modernist sculpture.
German-born Kluas has shown his work both nationally and internationally throughout his career and had the great distinction of serving as Harry Bertoia’s studio assistant. His work is held in numerous public and private collections worldwide, yet he makes his home with his wife, Patty, in the hills of Hereford Township, Berks County.
This exhibit is in the Fraktur Gallery through September 29, 2013.
