Shared Vision / Separate Vision The sculptures of Gary Weisman and Treacy Ziegler - 3D virtual exhibition by Gallery Night Ithaca

Shared Vision / Separate Vision The sculptures of Gary Weisman and Treacy Ziegler

In this exhibition, I have created life and over life-size animal sculptures. The sculptures are created from thousands of prisoners’ letters received through the Prisoner Express project where I am a volunteer art director. In this project of the Center for Transformative Action and affiliated with Cornell University, prisoners are invited to receive free newsletters and free courses on various subjects. As a volunteer art director, I create art projects for 9000 prisoners in prisons across the United States. Many of the prisoner artists have participated in these projects for 10 years. The project receives about 20,000 letters annually.

Treacy Ziegler and Gary Weisman are artists and a married couple living in Newfield New York for the past 22 years. This exhibition brings together their sculptures. With the shared vision and hope that sculpture can be the aesthetic manifestation of compassion and care, Ziegler creates sculptures of animal imagery, while Weisman uses the human form. Weisman creates his sculpture in bronze. Ziegler creates her sculptures of paper; cast from thousands of letters she receives from prisoners through the Prisoner Express project of the Center For Transformative Action, affiliated with Cornell University. It is her hope that the sculptures reflect the range of emotion evidenced in the letters; hope, regret, sadness, loneliness, and love.

Ziegler and Weisman are internationally known artists with galleries representing them in Canada and United States.

The 2020 CAP ArtSpace is sponsored by the Tompkins Trust Company.
