ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens

Reflecting the heroic spirit of Teddy Roosevelt’s provocative “Man in the Arena” speech, ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens creates captivating spaces that celebrate the work of over one hundred emerging to internationally renowned artists who fearlessly express authenticity and integrity their work.

“It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens’ uniquely beautiful art and design venues feature contemporary art and sculpture, as well as finely-edited collections of furnishings, objects and curiosities dating from the 18th century to the present.

ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens invites you to celebrate Shared Existence, our newest showcase highlighting an inspiring collection of works by Gail Folwell.

Gail Folwell creates artworks anchored in the human experience; body language, spirit, mind, and interaction. Her abstractly figurative, concept-driven sculptures and installations are directed by a core purpose to illustrate and inspire human connection that will ultimately bring us closer to each other. With ‘Shared Existence’, Folwell invites us to join her in experiencing the evolution of her creative process as manifested in a series of newly conceived works. Stepping beyond her coveted bronzes, Folwell reimagines her vision for human connection through expression in lucite, hand-bent steel rod, and photographic imagery.

With a sound understanding of anatomy and body mechanics, Folwell finds the human body, with all of its musculature, speed, and grace, beautiful and inspiring. Throughout her art, she expresses the energy of the athletes and their sport with abstracted figurative forms frozen in mid-motion. Gail shares, “We relate viscerally to images in our own likeness. I sculpt in a variety of mediums, embracing traditional and new methods: technology, light, and sound...developing and sharing concepts that aim to connect people through immersive, interpretive and moving experiences in art.”

Change is an agent for challenging perception. Art is a power that unifies. Folwell melds the two, tempting our participation to immerse ourselves in the poignant experience that is our 'Shared Existence'.
