Sculpture Salmagundi XIV Opening

I've got two pieces in the 2010 Sculpture Salmagundi XIV Exhibition at The Arts Center at the Imperial Centre in Rocky Mount, NC. The show runs through January 3, 2011. I'm showing "That Which is Empty May be Filled" and "Wings", by huge wooden wings. This is the first time I've shown "Wings" in a gallery and I'm really excited about it, especially since the Arts Center is such a cool space.

Please come to the opening reception if you can.
