David & Goliath
Figure Sculpture from Africa
12 January through 22 February 2002
Reception: 12 January 3-5 PM
African art is full of passion, power, magic, beauty, daring, drama. It is earth-shaking and sublime – it brings forth the fruit of the earth and the progeny of its leaders. It is forthright and incorruptible. Like the ancient icons David & Goliath, the art empowers the leaders to do battle, and make peace; to protect the land, the tribe, and the family; the be fecund, to be victorious and righteous. Small works and large stand in close proximity – ready for the challenge. The power is spread everywhere.
