New York-based sculptor and kinetic artist Steve Gerberich makes his Newburgh, NY debut presenting a series of interactive works and workshops at Space Create!
Gerberich will showcase his kinetic works and offer workshops for visitors to enjoy:
Gerberich’s “Gadgetry” Exhibit
Gerberich transforms Space Create into a clinking, blinking, swaying push-button world.
This installation of interactive works creatively composed of overlooked common objects involves pressing buttons and turning cranks to set his kinetic sculpture in motion.
Make-and-Take Sculpting Event
Saturday, November 12th and 19th 1-5pm
Gerberich will inspire and direct willing participants to sculpt their own mini-masterpiece from a smorgasbord of parts painstakingly collected during Gerberich’s nationwide travels culled from dumpsters, thrift shops, and dollar stores. Handmade sculptures will be assembled using hot glue “welding.” Children and adults can re-compose these objects into original works, while acquiring a new appreciation for creative reuse. Free and open to the public.

About Artist Steve Gerberich
From a pack rat's treasure trove of motors, toys, and other bric-a-brac, Gerberich is an alchemist of odds and ends and always searching for possibilities. A self-proclaimed lover of hand tools or any useful invention without a power cord, his Newburgh NY studio is brimming with machine parts, fixtures, and armies of antique collectibles where he turns discarded items into fantastical kinetic sculpture.
A sculptor with a B.F.A. from the University of Northern Iowa, Steve Gerberich began making art that moves when he relocated to New York City in 1985. He set up his first motorized installation in the gallery-filled neighborhood of SoHo, convincing owners of an abandoned factory to let him use their display windows. His work caught the attention of passers-by, including art collectors and delighted art critics.
Gerberich’s sculptures have graced museums across the U.S. and Canada and has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, The Today Show, The New Yorker, Art in America and Sculpture Magazine. His work is held privately and in numerous public spaces throughout the United States.
Gerberich would like to thank Space Create and the Orange County Arts Council for their generous support.
