grayDUCK Gallery: Holy Fool

Terry Maker uses "a variety of commonplace, discarded, domestic objects to compose sculptural forms that are subsequently cast, cut, drilled, and scraped to reveal the guts or the polished veneer of the matter." Yes, that's true; another important thing to note is: These completed works, the deconstructions and reconstructions of quotidian materials, are often complex and always intriguing and just generally look totally awesome. See our review right here. Through May 3. Thu.-Sat., 11am-6pm; Sun., noon-5pm.
