Untamed is, as you might have guessed, an animal-themed sculpture exhibition is for those who appreciate the beauty of creatures beyond their adorable additions to sweatshirts, purses and notebooks. The stunning collection includes pieces from Carol Eckert, Sayaka Ganz, Geoffrey Gorman and Russell Wrankle, among others. Ganz's Plunge (ceiling-suspended birds) and Fogo (a big cat in mid-pounce) are of particular interest as they create striking illusions of movement and are entirely made of thrown away plastics. Untamed opens with a free public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 13, at the Craft Alliance gallery (6640 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-725-1177 or The work remains up through Sunday, February 26, and the gallery is open every day except Monday.
