The huge stone quarries that hide in the
landscapes of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky are strange things, monsters of
ruggedly carved-out negative space that — when abandoned and filled
with water — attract illicit swimmers and divers.
You don’t know where some trails will
lead. Roads diverge, loop, merge and meander. “I took the one less
traveled by,” Robert Frost wrote, “and that has made all the
difference.” Phyllis Weston Gallery presents Paper Trail
as an opportunity “to explore the brilliant variety of paper as a
medium.” But the medium really isn’t the message here.
The cardboard 3-D glasses supplied for
Brian Stuparyk’s work will make the comparison clearer. Put them on and feel
like a kid, knowing that this art show is fun and different. A visit
feels like an afternoon at the movies. Though
there are just three small rooms to see, remember that the artists’
themes are perception and time. It’s possible to get lost awhile.
