CURRENT: Metalwork and Drawings by Robin Croft

Robin Croft is a brilliantly inventive artist whose metalwork sculptures and ink drawings capture the sense of economic and physical insecurity present in the US since 9/11. "Nothing can be taken for granted," he writes in his Artist's Statement for this exhibit. "Constant change proves to be the only reliable point of reference."

Trained as a painter and graphic artist, Croft now works as a maintenance man in an assisted living facility in Virginia--- the inspiration for his remarkable drawings depicting life aboard the metaphorical Eldership, an imaginary vessel which serves as a narrative and pictorial platform for Croft's personal observations and his art. Also on display are Croft’s Fragment series assemblages, visually and emotionally arresting reflections of the impact of terrorism on the American psyche.

ARTIST'S TALK: Sunday, May 3rd, 3-5 p.m. at the Gallery
