Middy Potter: Amusing Assemblages

. January 21, 2014.

The WSG Gallery is hosting an exhibit of artwork, entitled Springs and Things, featuring multimedia artist, Middy Potter. Potter uses found objects as an avenue of discovery, exploration and expression. While the diversity of materials provide challenges and stimulates invention, Potter’s sense of humor is often injected into his amusing sculptures using juxtaposition and context. He remarks, "it is great fun to find an object and use it as part of a sculpture….I add a dash of humor, a bit of whimsy and a pinch of wonderment."

The opening reception is Friday, February 21, 7-9pm; the show runs through Saturday, March 22.
