‘Nature Of The Beast’

A good subtitle for this exhibition could be “Detail — Lots of It.” Printmaker Brian H. Jones and sculptor Brian Somerville are not members of the less is more camp. To view their art is a time-consuming venture but worth it. “This group of prints … [are] my responses to the natural world around me, especially now [that I’m] living in the middle of a forest,” said Jones. Somerville refers to his sculptures as “beasts.“ “Layered with humor and personal symbolism, my creatures explore human relationships and the beast within us all,” he said.
