COST:  Admission is free

Yet, out of the many disparate stories conveyed through the universal bridge that is the language of art, we are invited to the idea that walls can be torn down and conversations can be had. Led by the story from each piece of art, this timely exhibition reveals a patchwork of human experiences that on the surface are alien from another but in their essence are of the same story that is the human spirit. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 31.

Bold shapes and lyrical lines have long formed rhythmic relationships in Glentzer’s work, producing an elegant, minimal aesthetic. His early constructions were composed on a light table and printed as photographs. A fascination with Benesh Movement Notation, a written language of marks and symbols for recording dance steps, led him to create abstract works on paper utilizing acrylic, pastel, bass wood, gaffer tape, graphite and ink. With the bass wood elements, in particular, he began to explore more dimensionality. Over time, the work evolved to include sculpture rendered in bass wood and aluminum. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until July 27.
