On Friday, August 12, Liberty Arts' 2016 summer sculpture intern, Mia Kaplan, had her opening reception for her show, "Sol." Mia joined Liberty Arts through this select internship and worked throughout the summer with our community of artists to produce unique work, culminating in this show. Her show included many pieces made over the summer including: A large floor piece "Spiraling Out" made of welded steel; Multiple items of jewelry including rings, necklaces, and pins, including "Identity" made of copper and enamel; A wall piece "Layers" made of copper, patina, and steel; Cast statuettes made of bronze and patina; A wooden jeweler's bench; Ceramic glazed mugs; and An artisan pipe.

Quote from the artist: "I am titling this show 'Sol' in honor of all the work I did in the heat of the summer."
