Sculpture – architectural and totemic – comes to Center Gallery for an extended stay. The work of artists Larry Fox and Van Wilson is on display Sept. 18-Oct. 11. A 6 p.m. reception for the artists opens the show.
Fox constructs non-representational wall compositions from wood and canvas. The Omena artist is known locally and nationally for the dimensional, dynamic shapes he constructs, and for the complex surfaces he creates from layers of acrylic paint. Fox’s work is found in private collections as well as on the walls of corporate enterprises.
Wilson’s freestanding, totemic sculptures are carved from wood or assembled from metal and other found objects. The Maple City artist grew up in West Texas and brought with him a love of crows, the traditional messengers of the spirit world. Wilson takes a playful approach to creating his totems, mixing and matching and stacking shapes and creatures that he has painted in eye-popping colors.
