Western art, says artist James Russell May, is “at once familiar and alien to the eyes of the contemporary viewer … In my work, I attempt to form a bridge between the present and the past, as well as the material and ethereal.” He has achieved his goal. Inspired by Greek and Roman mythology and 19th-century academic art, his highly-detailed paintings of the human figure are all his own. The reception is Friday, June 29 from 6 to 9 p.m. The gallery is open for receptions and by appointment. The entrance is at the back of the building on McHenry Street.
