LANSING, Mich. — The artist says: "My work is currently focused on depicting the shape and character of the sky in a given place. I am recording these characteristics because the sky, while helping to define a unique sense of space and place, is also something huge, outside ourselves, universal and ubiquitous. By putting the shape of the sky into drawings, collages and sculptures, I am making the sky a thing to hold, to understand, to identify as our own: a part of ourselves."

Join for the reception on Friday, September 13, 6 – 8 PM with the Member Exclusive Insider Series Artist Talk prior to the reception at 5:30 PM. The artist will be in attendance and light refreshments will be served.

This exhibition is generously supported by George Orban and Rae Ramsdell.
