Bruno David Fall Exhibitions

Sarah Harford
It was slightly delayed, but the Bruno David Gallery's fall show is now open at its new home. It's a big exhibition, too, with six artists — Chris Kahler, Ann Wimsatt, Sarah Harford, Kahlil Irving, Michael Jantzen and Van McElwee —all presenting new work. For Wimsatt, Irving and Harford, this is their inaugural show with the gallery. The paintings in Wimsatt's Not a Passive Journey begin as small watercolors of a city's public places and skylines, but they are then digitally modified in an echo of the constant growth and accretion that takes place in urban environments. Undocumented displays masses of Irving's ceramic forms, which are stand-ins for bodies. His formations symbolize gatherings — either social in nature (say, a party or family reunion) or advocating for social justice (marches and rallies). Harford's installation Swing is a chandelier made of broken automotive headlights and taillights. The still-functional lights are controlled by a timer, which turns them on suddenly and throws broken shadows around the room, or shuts off suddenly and leaves darkness. The show opens with a free reception from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, November 10, at Bruno David Gallery (7513 Forsyth Boulevard, Clayton; The show continues through December 23, and the gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday.
