In-Town Gallery presents an exhibition of works by innovative metal sculptor Denice Bizot. The title of his show is “The Shape of Things,” and he will feature spectacularly shaped three-dimensional artwork that has been enhanced with alcohol inks.

Often inspired by mundane objects and shapes that arise by chance, Bizot is renowned for creating art that combines seemingly contradictory elements such as straight lines and soft curves or common objects with abstract design. Beginning with a reception on Friday, October 7 from 5-8 p.m., “The Shape of Things” will run through October 31.

“For this exhibition,” she says, “biomorphic and irregular forms continue to inform my work with a renewed interest in the meshing of hard edge lines and flowing curves into bas-relief forms. I use inks to color my pieces with a palette inspired by images of our galaxy taken many light years away.

Denice Bizot is an important member of the Chattanooga art scene, known for her original use of materials. After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Loyola University, she worked exclusively in an art gallery setting before moving on to designing home furnishings. Her work can be seen in public spaces around Chattanooga as well as corporate collections in Amsterdam, New York, Houston, New Orleans, Hattiesburg, MS and Tennessee. It is part of many private collections across the United States, including that of Catherine Zeta-Jones.

In-Town Gallery is a cooperative gallery located on the North Shore of Chattanooga at 26A Frazier Avenue. We are open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (closed on Tuesday) and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
