Sonoma County artist Stephen Fitz-Gerald is best-known for his sculptures, both of human figures and abstract shapes.
But he also creates functional art — furniture, lighting, candelabra, wall mirrors, jewelry, bowls, vases and flatware — all original designs made of steel, stainless steel or bronze.
He’ll feature both categories in his first one-man-show, opening with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 2, at the Risk Press Gallery, 7345 Healdsburg Ave., Sebastopol.
The show will run noon to 5 p.m. every Wednesday through Sunday until the end of December.
The Rohnert Park-based artist has been in the county for 30 years. His public sculptures include “Sea Spiral Fountain,” at Memorial Hospital, and “Trione Sculpture Fountains” at Third and D streets in downtown Santa Rosa.
Last year, Fitz-Gerald’s 12-foot-high steel sculpture, “Industrial Tropic,” commissioned by the Martin family of Pine Creek Properties, was installed on Piner Road near Industrial Drive in Santa Rosa.
