Sette Summer Sun
Rather than whine about the high temperatures, as weve spent the past three months doing, Lisa Sette got constructive about it. A new show called From the Ground Up has, for much of the summer, been distracting us from the monstrous weather with new works by well-regarded artists, each of whom has captured summer as seen by people who dont live in the fiery, relentlessly hot desert: Idyllic; peaceful; warm.
Theres Mayme Kratzs Pale Dream 4, another of her gorgeous resin pieces, this one a delicate whirl of cicada wings floating above a field of tall grass. Vietnamese artist Binh Danhs resin-and-plant prints project stark photographic images onto leaves and other foliage. And there are new works from Beverly Penn, Alan Burr Johnson, and several others -- all intent on helping us remember that, for some, summer means more than just crummy weather.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 9. Continues through Oct. 30, 2010
