"On Their Own"
February 21 - May 16, 2010
Solo exhibition of Jessica Straus's sculptures. Straus marries her hand-crafted wooden elements with found metal forms, some familiar, others enigmatic. Her inventions stretch the definition of function and celebrate the quirkiness of the individual in a joyful swipe at mass production. Straus will also exhibit her "Little Red Dress" series. Small, carved female figures, stoically poised in various precarious positions, leave the viewer at once, alarmed and chuckling, in self- recognition. Artist Reception: February 28, 1:30-3:30 PM Artist Talk: March 17, 11 AM
