2013 Metal, Stone & Wood Exhibit Tohono Chul Exhibit House Main Gallery

Larry Gotkin's recent award-winning work, Birdka Kukri Knife, was accepted for display at the juried Metal, Stone & Wood Exhibit at Tohono Chul Park (Exhibit House Main Gallery) from Friday, April 26 - Sunday, September 1, 2013.

Reception: Friday, April 26 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.

Show Description: An artist’s choice of materials is an essential part of the final aesthetic experience that artwork offers. With textural, compositional and creative nuances, every artistic medium bears its own personality. The exhibit Metal, Stone, and Wood celebrates these three distinctly different materials as they are used in two-dimensional works, sculpture, functional ware, and beyond. The particular weight and texture of carved stone can sit in stark contrast to the polish and angularity of welded steel (or sometimes, vice versa) and the ways in which local artists are engaging with these materials is at the heart of this exciting exhibition.

The gallery and its programs are open to the public (see hours, directions, admission prices, and other details below).
