Milton Hebald

Penthouse Gallery

A small rectangular area of roof space adjoining a penthouse office suite has been converted into an open-air gallery by the tenant of the suite. The current exhibition is the first of a series of projected exhibitions of sculpture by artists affiliated with the Nordness Gallery in New York. Mr. Hebald’s jaunty paraphrasing of Classical and Baroque sculptural themes in cast bronze are amusing but hardly distinctive: they are solidly within a very familiar vernacular of the commercial conventions of decorative, “conversation piece” garden sculpture.
