A New Dimension in Art: 
The Ralph Hurst Collection of Sculpture

May 8, 2014 – June 5, 2014

The Left Bank Art Gallery welcomes the return of sculpture by American sculptor luminary Ralph N. Hurst, first exhibited in the gallery in 1975. Carved from stone, alabaster, and Carrara marble, the late artist produced beautiful works in realistic as well as modern shapes which reflect Hurst's talent for bringing "the soul of the stone" to life. Visit the Left Bank Art Gallery and enjoy the tactile and visual pleasure of Hurst's creations from the J. Hurst Classical Art Gallery, offered for the first time to the public.
