"In Between Mass and Void"

This show could be subtitled "Six Men Make Big Heavy Objects," except many of the sculptures aren't what they seem. Butch Jack's wall disks, which appear to be formed of molten metal, are in fact foam covered with metallic-looking graphite. Ditto Harvey Bott's cubes and slabs of "steel," which are actually made from lightweight canvases. Continuing in this subversive vein, Jason Makepeace makes carved limestone that seems to bunch, sag and wrinkle, and Dean Ruck turns crown molding into a linear sculpture that runs along the floor. Dan Havel's architecture-inspired objects and Patrick Renner's wooden sculptures round out the show.
