Gallery presenting 'Confrontations'

Opening artists reception is Thursday

The Harrington Gallery at the Firehouse Arts Center is presenting an innovative new exhibit, "Confrontations: Artists and the Natural World," from Nov. 7 through Dec. 15. Media includes sculpture, photography, large format oil painting, and ceramic.

The artists -- Arthur Comings, Ralph Holker, Daniel Kasser, Andrew Roberts-Gray and John Trefethen -- will present an informal talk at the opening reception, from 7-9 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 8. The reception is free and open to the public.

This unusual exhibit explores the contentious relationship between man and environment, specifically man's use and misuse of nature and the detritus that results, according to a press release.

"The marks and artifacts that remain have inspired a variety of unique responses in photography, painting, and sculpture," it stated. "These intriguing remains are the common thread among the five artists whose work is otherwise diverse in approach and technique."

The Harrington Gallery is located at the Firehouse Arts Center, 4444 Railroad Ave. Hours are noon-5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; 11 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday; and one hour before most performances and during intermissions. Admission for this exhibit is free; donations are accepted.
