Ceramicist Akio Takamori was raised in Japan but studied with Ken Ferguson at the Kansas City Art Institute. His figurative sculptures explore corporeal duality, such our sense of inner and outer space. Takamori's boldly painted human forms are physically large (three feet tall or more) and grouped together -- but not too closely. A young girl stands apart from an old woman, her enigmatic countenance suggesting a studied indifference to her elder. The woman's gnomic expression makes it appear that she's recalling her own childhood. An exhibition of Akio Takamori's new work opens tonight at Duane Reed Gallery.

Opening reception 5-8 p.m. Fri., Apr. 10. Continues 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tue.-Sat. through May 16. Duane Reed Gallery (4729 McPherson Avenue; 314-361-4100 or www.duanereedgallery.com). Free admission..
