Bugs and beauty


September 11, 1997|By John Dorsey

Soledad Salame's latest show at Gomez, opening Saturday, is an installation that consists of paintings, prints and insects. Real insects from the rain forests of South America, shown in specimen boxes on loan from the National Museum of Natural History in Washington. The theme of the show is the environment (of course), and Salame says, "It is about bugs, beauty and the Earth." In conjunction with the opening, Gary Hevel, an entomologist from the natural history museum, will speak on insect farming in Indonesia on Saturday at 3 p.m. Also on view this month at Gomez are the paintings of Gloria Ortiz Hernandez and and photographs by Bernard Faucon.

At Gomez Gallery, 836 Leadenhall St., through Oct. 12. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. For information, call 410-752-2080.
