Al Stone

At Gallery 114

Thu, May 03 to Sun, May 27

show

Opening May 3, 6-9 pm

In this untitled exhibit, Alfred Stone departs somewhat from his large-scale constructions of papier-mache', wood, and wire, which explored a lush and vibrantly painted natural world of flora and fauna that was full of both beauty and danger. In other past series, he has re-examined mythological figures and narrative myths from various cultures. Stone notes that for now he's still developing a vocabulary to describe his newer, conceptual work, in which culture is viewed as a tool. "We have created a culture to survive the harshness of nature," he says, but that is not necessarily a benign construct. The words of Isaiah Berlin, in The Crooked Timber of Humanity, have lately been on his mind and inspire his work.

He is joined by Alan Wieder, who offers recent photographic images from Cuba in "Street Portraits." The exhibit opens May 3, with a First Thursday reception for the artists, 6 to 9 pm, and ends Saturday, May 26. Gallery hours are noon to 6 pm, Thursday through Sunday, and 3 to 9 pm First Thursday.
