Urban Fossils: An Exhibition of Interest

Urban FossilsNow showing at the Cross MacKenzie Gallery through June 17th is an interesting exhibition of new work by sculptor Paul Di Pasquale.

According to the Gallery’s announcement, Di Pasquale is “known for his monumental figurative bronzes,and this body of work is a departure for the artist. Living in Richmond and troubled by the devastating crimes committed with guns, Di Pasquale has created works of art out of actual destroyed guns given to him by the authorities after destruction.”

There was also a story, One Man’s Gun is Another Man’s Art, on NPR this morning that was interesting. I like it when you can hear an artist speak about their own work and what it means to them.
