Sculpture moving to church in Auburn

After seven years at the Rood Administrative Center lobby, Geraldyn Bergman’s “The Seekers” wood sculpture will move to a permanent home at Auburn Presbyterian Church.

This 8-foot sculpture of featureless figures of men, women and children is the largest piece Bergman has done. It’s been on loan since 1995 to Nevada County.

“With this piece,” Bergman said, “I wanted to create a freestanding wood sculpture that captures the spirit of those who have come to Nevada County over the past century and a half – the seekers of riches of all kinds, spiritual and material.”

Next Tuesday, the sculpture made from locally grown walnut relocates to the church at 13025 Bell Air Drive, Auburn. Bergman has been involved in art groups in Southern California and Nevada County.

She was on the Beverly Hills Art League board of directors and an exhibiting artist for the Los Angeles Art Association. In Nevada City, she was a founding member of the Artists’ Guild where her pieces were displayed. Bergman is now represented by the Julie Baker Fine Art gallery in Grass Valley.
