Happy Spring!

Artist Shawn Farester has worked with the gallery since its inception. He even helped us move into the firehouse on Arch Street. He created the bar design for our serving area and collaborated on a custom gallery design for the great space! Now, he brings his large scale abstract sculpture to you for his first solo exhibit with moxie DaDA! While studying and preparing for this exhibit has taken several years, the work itself has mostly been produced within 2009. Some earlier series and pieces may also be available for reflection on process and progress. In "END of DAYS", Shawn attempts to capture your imagination and catch your eye while he communicates what cannot be heard.

We invite you to the public reception on Saturday, May 8, 2009 from 6-9 PM. The exhibit runs through May 30.

His work emanates strength, but challenges the viewer to question themselves. The welded and manipulated metal exhibits a majestic, while fierce, form which is testimony to the many qualities of metal that are incorporated. His work is inspired by nature and a reflection of his personality and also his interest in medieval times.
