SEPTEMBER 3 - 26
Opening Reception: 3RD OF SEPTEMBER, 2015


We are pleased to present a solo exhibition by artist Larry Calkins with a collection of new works. Larry states "My artwork is suffused with the world they opened up for me, condensed in a pictorial narrative, sometimes secretive, or humorous, or biting, sometimes dipping into the absurd and surreal undercurrent of a community steeped in personal tragedy - but also in the ever present hilarity of the unbroken human spirit."

Larry Calkins works with a variety of mediums that draws from multiple aspects in his life, including his history, surroundings, and deep appreciation for nature. Larry describes some of the processes behind his work: "There is an underlying meaning that triggers an emotional response. I developed my own symbols that mark my narratives: for example, the burning house represents change and disruption. Other houses stand for stability and connectedness, a place to be from or to belong. Small houses dot green mountains and each on holds a mystery unseen... Appearances can be deceptive. I am known for my dress sculptures. They appear plain in their countenance but are elegant in their simplicity. They embody the same symbolism but are abstract nature which allows the viewer to supply his/her own interpretation."
