Monica Naugle: Oppositional Essences

March 3 – May 20, 2007

Perkins Gallery

Plant City artist Monica Naugle utilizes harsh and often discarded metal and other materials to create unusually delicate sculptures. She weaves forms that are either directly recognizable (clothing or purse, for example) or sufficiently organic in appearance as to seem perfectly natural. Naugle is a native of Colombia who has lived in Florida since 1978. Her work has been exhibited throughout the Tampa Bay area in museums and through public commissions, but this is the Polk Museum of Art’s first opportunity to exhibit her work.
