Jim Gallucci, a graduate of LeMoyne College (BA, English 1973) and Syracuse University (BFA and MFA, Sculpture 1976), has been a sculptor for over 26 years. He was an art instructor at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and the University of Alabama at Huntsville. He was an Exhibit Designer for the North Carolina Zoological Park in Asheboro, NC. Presently, Jim works full time designing and creating/fabricating sculptures in his Greensboro studio assisted by a staff of eight people. His commissions can be found in public, corporate, and residential spaces throughout the country and the world. Each May, Jim’s work is selected to participate in the “Pier Walk Sculpture Show” in Chicago, IL, the world’s largest outdoor sculpture show with an estimated 8.2 million visitors. Jim has been chosen for such international shows as the World Expo 88 in Brisbane, Australia and the 7th Henry Moore Grand Prize Exhibition at the Utsukushi-ga-hara Open-Air Museum, Hakone, Japan. Jim’s sculptures usually incorporate elements of doors and gateways that invite viewer participation. He believes gates give viewers a literal entry into his work, a portal to an aesthetic journey. In Raleigh, NC, Jim designed a 62’ long gate called the “Whisper Gate”for Exploris (a children’s interactive global awareness museum). This functional gate is a lyrical interpretation of the world created by sound tubes that wind throughout the structure encouraging people of all ages to whisper messages into the gate. This interaction of discovery and communication brings the global experience to everyone. Other projects include the “Veteran’s Memorial Archways” for Rockville, MD; the “Gate of Opportunity” for the South Trust Bank building, Jacksonville, FL; “Play Ball” the baseball gates for UNC-Greensboro; “9-11 Sculpture Project” two lasting sculptures incorporating 32 tons of World Trade Center steel in remembrance of all the lives lost and affected on September 11, 2001. Jim develops each project with a unique sense of self-expression creating art that captivates viewers.
