There will also be an artist talk on Tuesday, April 16th at 7:00pm. "Gathering Space" is a site-specific installation that intersects Hamiltonian's 1,800 square foot gallery. Abandoning his usual sculptural materials such as iron and wood for hand-sewn nylon fabric and fiberglass rods, Thompson creates sculptures that act as both conduits through the gallery and formidable monumental barriers.
