|Fire Station Three, front view with Hula Hoop Dancer.|
Work by Sabrina Small, David Steiner, Frank Strunk III, Tod Cameron, and John Revisky was shown. The event was not nearly as well-attended as the earlier one, because FS3 was unable to take advantage of the free advertising available for arts events on CL, TBT and TTT. Through a friend of mine, I was alerted, and managed to put it in the AT This Weekend section. A lot arts insiders showed up. Maryanne puts on a first-rate spread, something that is becoming a rare sight these days.
The show had no real curation, wasting the benefits of synergy between works to some degree.
|David Steiner, "Flight of Icarus"|
On the right is "Flight of Icarus", by David Steiner. It's a large , evocative, uplifting metal sculpture, about 6 ft tall. I spoke with David for some time. He's a savvy, dedicated artist based out of Sarasota.
|Todd Cameron, "Gearhead|
Todd Cameron's Big and Small Gearheads was a duet of metal sculptures involving gears, both under glass, like biological specimens.. The bigger one on the left was about 4 ft tall.
|John Revisky, "Rock Hard"|
|John Revisky, "Soul Soup and Salvation"|
|Sabrina Small, Messengers of Memories"|
|Frank Strunk III, "Untitled"|
Frank Strunk III, works in different media, but is best known for his metal sculptures. Here is a mixed-media work that speaks of being in forced close proximity, and at right angles to each other.
I want to thank all the artists, Ms. Lynch and FS3 for a good show. This was better than the first one, and while there's plenty of room for improvement, things are headed in the right direction.
