Joe Parkers sculptures are influenced by Kafka, Beck informs. One of his heads has a rat in its maw. Sandra Garcias molten metal pieces are distinctly minimal, and Nancy Coppolas photos are stunning. This is a powerful show.
Beck himself has created a work featuring a suspended gate and dangling crutches. Theyre hugely symbolic and a metaphor for a myopic folly, Beck laughs. Man, this is like a fricking black hole.
Stop by this Saturday between 4 and 7 p.m., when Beck and company host an artists reception for the show. Admission is free.
