Ailene Fields, Once Upon a Time and The Frog Prince

December 7, 2019 to August 24, 2020
Dag Hammarskjold Plaza, Manhattan


Fascinated since childhood by ancient Greek and Roman mythology, Ailene Fields had these stories and characters form the core of her early bronze sculptures. Taking harsh materials such as bronze and stone and transforming them into gentle characters is a major goal for the artist. It is a process of finding what has been trapped within since time immemorial and allowing it to reveal itself to the world. Her sculptures in Dag Hammarskjold embody whimsy and playfulness in the form of a fairy perched on a branch and a larger-than-life frog prince.

This exhibition is presented by Six Summit Gallery.
