Embracing Public Art


embrace your inner light©2016 Angela Ridgway, welded re-purposed steel, 55" x 29" x 15" photo by Kevin McConnell


I'm excited to finally announce that my sculpture embrace your inner light will be installed as public art in Beaverton, Oregon later this week!  The City of Beaverton and the Beaverton Downtown Association chose this piece after seeing it at Art On Broadway Gallery in Beaverton.  If you are in the area, I'd like to invite you to the sculpture dedication on Wednesday, November 9th at 4pm.

A little bit about the piece...this sculpture is made from re-purposed curved metal panels.  But the focus of the sculpture is the welded imagery.  The sculpture depicts a curved tree branch on one side and a rising sun on the other. I welded about 15 pounds of welding wire to create the depth and detail texture the tree branch.  I didn't plan this, but it wasn’t complete until that point.  The images and shape of the piece give it special meaning to me, and I hope for everyone who sees it:

inside each of us is a light that shines it isn’t always visible to others, but it’s always there. embrace yours and the brilliance it gives you.
