Artist: Cal Lane
Medium: plasma cut steel oil cans
Wednesday, Oct. 7, 7 p.m., BBOX, The Gateway, 1601 W. Mount Royal Ave.
Sculptor and welder Cal Lane likes to work as a visual devil's advocate, using contradiction as a vehicle for finding her way to an empathetic image of opposition that creates a balance, as well as a clash, by comparing and contrasting ideas and materials. Lane will give a lecture describing her recent work, some of which has become more political due to living in a time of war and feeling the guilt of a bystander.
