Appetite For Construction

Former builder tries his hand at a less dusty art

For most of his life, Larry Forsythe had his hands in everything from concrete to steel. These days, they’re wrist-deep in clay behind a potter’s wheel. After more than 20 years in the construction business, Larry’s come out of retirement to start Another Gallery – the product of his lifelong passion for art and those who do it well.

“I can build skyscrapers,” he says, “but I don’t know how a credit-card machine works.”

He’d better learn fast. Another Gallery, his new project with Lesa Mahoney, grand-opens from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, December 4. The space will feature the work of six artists, including nationally known trompe l’oeil purveyor Gregory West and emerging watercolorist Wendy Willis.

The grand-opening festivities include drinks and appetizers.


Fri., Dec. 4, 5-9 p.m.; Sat., Dec. 5, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2009
