11 1/2 W. Chase St. Associate AIA Member Exhibit
The common thread in this group show is the artists: All are members of the American Institute of Architects. According to John Shirley, a curator of the exhibit, architecture is a creative field made up of individuals who have talents and skills that are not always directly related to buildings; this show provides them with an opportunity to present architectural and otherwise diverse works. Notable are the paper and wood collages of Dennis Pabst, a Frank Lloyd Wright stained glass design in counted cross-stich by Ann Adams and Jill Storm's watercolors. Through Aug. 30. Call 625-2585.
NEW FACTORY GALLERY
928 N. Charles St. Works by Lawrence Corey, Wayne Casey Leal and Chris Fox
This is a textural show: All the works have some inherent relief to them. Lawrence Corey uses scrap metal to make sculptural pieces he calls icons that are "about power . . . changing as we change through our lives." The mark of nature remains on these raw, rusted and weathered wall hangings and sculpture. Wayne Casey Leal takes stones, wood, metal and nails and encases them in a smooth shiny black liquid compound (his own concoction), creating framed and free-standing terrains. Through August. Call 528-1836.
