On Saturday, August 28, from 5 to 9 p.m., Chase Edwards Gallery in Bridgehampton hosts a curated opening for “What’s Next,” an indoor/outdoor exhibition featuring the sculptures of New York City-based artist Jim Rennert, including his pieces “It Happens,” “Win Win,” “A Step Ahead,” “Walking the Tightrope” and others. The show runs through Labor Day, but Rennert’s works can be seen year round at the gallery.

Rennert is known for combining the traditional medium of bronze with modern forms of flat laser-cut steel to illustrate concepts of corporate success and the obstacles faced by the modern working person. Drawing on both his past professional experiences and those of his contemporaries, Rennert composes thought-provoking works to which viewers undeniably react and relate. Early works emphasize movement and physical metaphor, while more recent pieces show the development of a more contemplative character.

Rennert currently has 10 monumental to life-size sculptures installed throughout New York City at Pershing Square Plaza, Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza, 1700 Broadway, in front of The Anthem Building at 222 E. 34th Street, and at 1350 6th Avenue.

Chase Edwards Gallery is located at 2462 Main Street in Bridgehampton. For more information, visit chaseedwardsgallery.com.
