Opening reception

Friday, April 5 | 5:30–7:30 pm

Largely untrained, Charlottesville native Caesar Morton began his career as a painter but has since found his artistic voice in sculpture. His free standing and wall-mounted creations are derived from and inspired by the natural world. They are made of such things as driftwood, fish bone and stingray casings discovered by the artist while out on walks or offered to him by friends. His manipulation of such incongruous materials, results in images of women, aquatic-scapes, and tigers that reside in the space between invention and reality.
