Don't Miss


August 03, 2006|By SAM SESSA

What's going on underneath? As a culture, we naturally gauge someone by his or her outside appearance, though a different person altogether could be just beneath the surface. Gallery 1448's new exhibit Under My Skin looks at how tendons, muscles, blood, love, sadness and hate interact within the human body.

`Under My Skin'

Over the past five months, artists Liz Henzey and Trudy Babchak worked together on the 28 pieces in the exhibit. To create the body parts and other shapes, Henzey would sculpt liquid marble on canvas, then Babchak would paint on top.

"To collaborate like that -- it was a real journey for both of us," Henzey said.

Under My Skin opens tomorrow and runs through Aug. 20 at Gallery 1448, 1448 E. Baltimore St. There is a reception 6 p.m.-8 p.m. tomorrow. Hours are 1 p.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays and by appointment. Call 410-327-1554 or visit
