But like most sculptors' art, Venet's work isn't limited to the built form. A collection of his works on paper, as well as his sculptural pieces, are on display at the William Shearburn Gallery (4735 McPherson Avenue; 314-367-8020 or www.shearburngallery.com) in the exhibition Bernar Venet: Recent Sculpture, Drawings and Prints. These same concerns of balance and counterbalance, of gravity and weight holding one another at bay, are evident in his 2-D works. Venet visits the gallery from 6 to 8 p.m. this evening (Friday, September 8) for the opening reception of his show. His work remains on display at the Shearburn Gallery through Saturday, October 14.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Sept. 8. Continues through Oct. 14
