Linda Fleming, whose sculpture is featured in the Gene Leahy Mall’s art garden, is the centerpiece of the Kaneko’s 10th annual Soirée celebration on September 29 from 6-10pm. “Experimenta De Vacuo Spatio,” a retrospective of her 56-year career, will continue through February 2.

The show, whose title translates to “Experiments on Empty Space,” underscores the approach this mountain west artist takes to sculpture—to explore open structures. Currents of air, movement of light and ambient sounds in nature influence the pierced, latticework metal sculptures for which she is now recognized. Tracing the development of her aesthetic, the exhibition will include sculpture, drawing and wall works.

“Linda Fleming: Experimenta De Vacuo Spatio” opens at the Kaneko, 1111 Jones Street in the Old Market, on Sept. 29 from 6-10pm as part of its annual Soirée fundraiser from 6-10pm; the show opens to the public the following day and runs through Feb. 2. Kaneko is open Thursday-Saturday, 1-7 pm, and Sunday, 1-6pm.
