This Weekend

8.14.09

Gerald Habrath & Preston Poe @ The Creative Alliance
Recalling the cave walls of Lascaux, the wailing wall, or just community bulletin boards, artists Gerald Habarth (Morgantown, WV) and Preston Poe (Salisbury, MD) make a literal and metaphorical pilgrimage to the gallery walls of The Patterson. There, they produce, display and combine quirky drawings and paper maché sculptures, along with other material gathered on their journeys, to make an animated video about the ways people convene within and around walls to share information.
Reception: August 14, 2009 5:30-7:30 pm
