Friday, July 24, is all about the Men at Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery.. The gallery was challenged to design a show about men; the majority of the body of art of the past, pertaining to the female form. The challenge met, “The Male Form” was born. Entries are coming in from around the county, and beyond. This show promises to sizzle, in a good way. Perhaps a Michelangelo will emerge with a new version of the David.

Where to look, where to look! Dramatic photographs, daring paintings, sculptures, pottery, monumental glass works and jewelry are all part of the display. Artist Adriana Ficarelli has designed a collection of wedding rings for same sex couples. A sculptural display of men in a yoga class will take up several pedestals. Durga Garcia, fast becoming an international star for her dramatic and exquisitely produced photographs will have several powerful images in this show. Priscilla Silverberg has created a family portrait, both beautifully executed and poignant. James Rabidoux has created two of his “word” paintings, “Men,” which will be juxtaposed on the wall- Find the Man is each image. Yes, the “Fig Leaf” will not enter into many of the works. Visual puns abound and will be scattered throughout the serious works of art. This is a show in which many artists had a lot of fun creating the works, and it shows. Artists live to create for appreciate audiences. Come and share your thoughts with our artists as they share their food, drink and art with you.
