A TOUCH OF GLASS 1
APRIL 8 — MAY 7
"Works In Metal," work from
five artists, will be displayed at
the Wetsman Collection
through April 30.
From Colonial beginnings,
candlesticks have always been
a part of our history. Albert Pa-
ley's candleholders sit on the
Grand Staircase of the White
House. His tall candle stands
drip and flow like the candles
they are meant to hold, defying
the very substance from which
they are constructed.
Jonathan Bonner creates his
whimsical creature candle-
holders. Anteaters, alligators,
and reptiles all seem to move
and sway to the sounds of an
ancient, invisible flute.
Charles Crowley challenges
the imagination with his pieces
which blend form with function,
doses of whimsey and the
Tom Joyce starts with a flat
piece of mild steel about 10 feet
long, which he heats, folds and
weaves as if worldng with fabric.
John Iverson contrasts size
with openness and airiness in
his structures. He finds his in-
spiration in the natural world
for his jewelry.
The gallery is located at 132
North Woodward, Birmingham.
