Albert Paley: Thresholds

July 1, 2017 to October 1, 2017
Albert Paley (born 1944) is an American modernist metal sculptor. Initially starting out as a jeweler, Paley has become one of the most distinguished and influential metalsmiths in the world. Within each of his works, three foundational elements stay true: the natural environment, the built environment, and the human presence. Paley is the first metal sculptor to have received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Institute of Architects. This exhibition will explore Paley’s process and will feature large-scale sculptures, drawings, and maquettes.
In addition to SVMA's museum exhibition, the City of Sonoma will witness a summer-long display of several of Paley's larger-scale works. In Sonoma Plaza, Depot Park, at the Sonoma Community Center, and adjacent to the museum, will be the largest public art installation ever seen in Sonoma.  SVMA will provide docent-led walking tours of both the public art installation and museum exhibition. We wish to thank all of our sponsors for their generous support in bringing this work to Sonoma.
