Jan. 29-Feb. 28: Nucleus
You can visit the Cross MacKenzie Gallery in Northwest through February 28 to see Nucleus, an exhibit featuring new ceramic sculpture by David Hicks. The California-based artist draws inspiration from agricultural elements in his organic wall installations, which include colorful yet muted gourd-like objects that protrude or hang from metal fixtures.
