New York University’s wonderful own Grey Art Gallery currently has a benefit exhibition featuring work by Arthur Carter called “Arthur Carter: Sculpture and Drawings,” the proceeds from which will benefit the exhibition space, which is right on Washington Square Park.

From The New York Observer Article:
Created in his Roxbury, Conn., studio, Mr. Carter’s sculptures are stunning geometrical and fluid forms, often constructed from stainless steel. Highlights from the exhibition include Octacube (1996), an angular silver and copper work that manages to look like a gorgeous piece of space junk (or a deadly weapon) while also revealing the mathematical understanding at its core. Another, Continuous Elliptical Loops (2005), is a smooth, flowing work that evokes fun and joy and silliness. Preliminary sketches and drawings will also be shown, offering a glimpse of Mr. Carter’s process.

In addition to the exhibition, on view through April 29, a retrospective book, Arthur Carter: Sculptures, Paintings and Drawings, will be published in May.
