Let me begin by indicting myself on one count; I seldom read past the first few lines in artist statements, particularly, if I like the visual aspects of the work in question, unless the artist statement reeks of verve or chattiness. We all know how it goes, in hack Latin: artifex dicitur longa, vita brevis (life is short, artist statements are forever). While Hilaree Hamblin's stalagmite sculptures are connected in some way to memory issues, per the text, I can only speak to their visual charms, which are abundant. They resemble gelatinous mounds from the background of a Dr. Seuss illustration, or the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia, or, closer to home, the crawfish chimneys in Gulf coast lawns and ditches. Though the exhibition has been open since May 20, there will be a reception for the artist on June 16, from six to eight pm. Following that, the exhibition will remain on view in the Tank Space at Spring Street Studios until July 10.
