Bronze sculpture to debut at CACE Gallery
Belgin Yucelen will be the next featured artist at the Morgan Community College Center for Arts and Community Enrichment Gallery of Fine art.
“My exhibition Journey of a Thousand Years is an invitation to an inner journey. It is intended to inspire the viewers to travel the undiscovered lands of the self,” artist Yucelen said.
Her exhibit will open on Friday, October 23 with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Gallery, 300 Main St., Fort Morgan, and will be on display through Nov.19.
“Each art piece is an examination of an aspect of the self,” said Yucelen, who studied sculpture at Florence Accademia D’Arte in Florence, University of Colorado Boulder, Art Students League of Denver and Scottsdale Art School. Her bronze figures often have a reflective element, “representing how we see ourselves and how this leads to the emotional judgment we make about our self-worth.”
The artist will also conduct a presentation on Nov. 6 at the CACE Gallery of Fine Art.
“I want to inspire viewers to self-reflect on their values, goals, beliefs, and the roles we play. But more importantly, I want viewers to explore what really underlies who we are is how we see ourselves in our own mirrors and the value we put for our self-worth. This is why it is important to travel our inner journeys to find and respect our skills, intelligence and beliefs.”
Her work has been represented in private collections and exhibitions nationally and internationally. For more information about the artist, visit her website at www.belginyucelen.com.
