We all mark time with memories, but Tempe artist Mark Klett does something more. Klett transforms sticks from desert camping trips into artifacts meant to mark time and commemorate human experience.
His Sunrise Sticks installation will span a 30-foot wall during the “Border Markers” exhibition at Lisa Sette Gallery, 210 East Catalina Drive, where you’ll also see photographs that capture the idiosyncrasies of saguaro cacti and a vast desert expanse.
Meet Klett, a Regents’ Professor with ASU’s School of Art, during the gallery’s free opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, September 17. While you’re there, look for an especially powerful pigment print titled Fence Separating the US/Mexico Border South of the Gila Mountains.
The exhibition continues through Saturday, October 29. Visit lisasettegallery.com.
