The “Cutting Edge” exhibit features assemblage sculpture and both nature and experimental photography. Both siblings earned degrees from Missouri State University in Springfield. Matthew is a blacksmith who incorporates natural materials such as stone into his iron sculptures. He is the owner of “Custom Metal Creations” in Colorado. His photographic images include colorful landscapes and botanicals. Courtney Dodd is a sculptor who uses found items from nature to incorporate into her sculptures; additionally, she creates the blown glass used in her work. The themes of her work involve life processes such as evolutionary cycles, time and the interconnectedness of all things.
