Michelle Post's 'Sum of All Parts'

Six artists known for being creative forces in the sculpture world are represented in the new exhibit, "Sum of All Parts," opening Thursday, May 16, at The Noyes Museum of Art of Stockton College, Hammonton branch.

Curated by Millville artist Michelle Post, the exhibit features her works as well as those by sculptors that Post has worked with at the Johnson Atelier and Grounds for Sculpture, located in Mercer County.

The pieces chosen for the exhibit vary in style, symbols and subject, but all are created from various parts that combine to form an overall piece, Post says.
